UPDATED: DEC 30, 2017 Woody and smokey, this is a deep brown ale, with a tan head and an earthy aroma. Bitter cocoa and coffee, molasses and slight cinnamon flavours. Dry, bitter finish, too astringent for me. berkshirejohn (6767) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 3, 2017
12oz can from Beer52. A glossy peaty brown colour with a tight caramel coloured head; aroma of caramel and chocoalte; light herbal bitterness to start, then a sweet chocolate body; before a smooth dry woody finish with some chocolate notes. A stasifying porter. Mr_Pink_152 (5760) - Lincoln, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - NOV 25, 2017
Tried in a Can From Beer52. Cola black colour with a thin tan head. Aroma has roasted malts and moderate chocolate. Taste roasted bitter, with a light toffee. Full to rich body. TimE (6272) - Tokyo, JAPAN - NOV 19, 2017
Great dry porter with proper cacao, milk chocolate and vanilla notes. Balanced, easy drinking and smooth. Good example of the style Cokemonkey11 (1123) - - NOV 13, 2017
Can. Dark dark brown with a soft, velvet tan head. Scent is medium dense cocoa, soft ethanol, and medium notes of bourbon barrel. Taste is soft, medium bodied, relatively mild, mature porter with some sharp, almost lemon peel sour notes. Finish is slightly salty. Very good. Natural.

Can, Beer52. Deep brown colour, nice off white foam. Sweetish malts upfront, maybe seems a little thin for 7%, but then a big bitter baking chocolate and nut shell finish. A bit of hop in there too. Lingers. Not bad, grew on me as it warmed up a bit. Hopper8 (260) - Holland, Michigan, USA - OCT 12, 2017
UPDATED: OCT 12, 2017 I'm going to need to try this beer again. It wasn't quite cold enough and the beer was super foamy. It had a not great smell which I think isn't super accurate of the beer. Even so, still was pretty decent.
