October 2017 - Bottle share in Hackney. Big thanks to Scopey. As 'Wild Clover Black Dog'. Dark brown, slight red hue, foamy light brown head. Aroma has a little vegetable, earthy, some cocoa.

AntonyWilson (500) - Johannesburg, SOUTH AFRICA - JUL 7, 2017
340ml Bottle: Pours a jet black with thin tan head. Lacing. Sweet sherry notes with big chocolate aromas. Big chocolate flavours with some liquorice notes as well. Slightly sweet, missing the caramel flavours. Bitterness is medium, astringency from the dark malt. Medium bodied, low carbonation. Overall, an interesting beer that i quite like, however, not a porter.

3.1
ERB92 (810) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAY 30, 2017
Aroma of coffee, chocolate, dried fruits, licorice and and a hint of smoke. Brown to black with a tan head. Medium sweet and medium bitter. Medium body with a lively to average carbonation. Overall this is a perfectly OK beer, but the thin body and the high carbonation level ruins the overall impression of it.
