Bottle, Ale House, Chelmsford
Deep chocolate colour. Nice lacing. Really classic English notes. I found it a bit too dry and a bit too thin. The oysters and sea water notes combined with the porter well. Good for the style. planky84 (3263) - Lee, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 24, 2015
Keg at the Hare and Billet, Blackheath. Black pour with a beige head. Raisin, coffee and chocolate aroma. Flavours of chocolate raisin and coffee leading to a sweet malt finish. Good stuff. Desverger (11492) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 16, 2015

and Billet, Blackheath, London - pours black with persistent beige head and lacing. Both sweet and roasted malty aroma and taste, with big chocolate, some coffee, caramel, some vanilla stokes in here as well, roasted finish. Beautiful.
Bottle shared by Casper @ De Bierbrigadier Eindhoven. Thanks for sharing Casper! Opaque very dark brown to black color, medium to full sized beige head that lasts for quite a while. Aroma is malts, some roast, lightly earthy, liquorice. Taste malts, dark malts, earthy, liquorice again and a slight touch of hops. Decent body, a bit fizzy carbonation.

Bottle, kindly provided by Cantabrian. Chocolate liqueur, vanilla, pumpernikel bread and a salty note even in the aroma. Top quality dark chocolate flavour, creamy mouthfeel and a finish reminiscent of subtly bitter, light salted coffee. Absolutely delicious!

I’m really going off stout. This one tries too much and ends up like a mardi gras float at the farmer’s field day. Caramel and chocolate. Confused. mtangel (10) - NEW ZEALAND - MAY 17, 2015
Black pour with slight head. This stout has a bitter, crisp flavor with hints of biscuit. All right, but not my go to NZ stout. waiake (606) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - APR 16, 2015

Bottle from ballantynes, christchurch. Black color, on of the biggest brown heads ever seen. Aroma is roasted malts, coffee, licorice. High co2, roasty, coffee, balanced. Nice stout, but the head is getting over the glass when poured.
