Poured into Toclmatto pint glass. Opaque. Red/caramel base Black malt appearance. Huge white lacing which is prominent and consistent. Aroma is Bramling Cross hops, chocolate malt, spruce, pine, morning dew.
Taste is leather, velvet, chocolate, blackcurrants, hazelnut, clotted Devonshire cream, silk, tar, molasses. A rather long fruity and peppery finish. A nice and well-made porter. Clean, easy-drinking.
Bottle. Dark brown with a small head. Quite spicy and subtly warming.A bit too sharp for my taste but still a pretty impressive beer. teorn88 (8066) - Rimini, ITALY - OCT 20, 2015

500ml, week 9. Photogenic glossy mahogany appearing black capped with a dense cappuccino foam. Nose coal smoke and black coffee over blackcurrant and sneaking passion fruit. Thick and juicy with a tang of bramble beneath blackened chaff and crumbled coffee bean. Hints of burdock and cola. Finally soapy and suggestive of burnt flowers. Old school with a contemporary twist. Love Wiper and True. anders37 (27226) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAY 12, 2015

Bottle from Saucy Pears. downender (8891) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - APR 3, 2015
Appearance - opaque black with a lovely fawn head.
Nose - creamy chocolate, light chalky note -calcium if that makes sense.
Taste - dark chocolate, light charcoal.
Palate - light to medium bodied with a creamy texture and a fairly good finish.
Overall - solid but didn’t live up to the good bottle presentation.
Bottle from Brewer’s Droop, Bristol. Deep brown in colour, with a decent, off-white, head. Sweet, coffee and black currant aroma, with a hint of pepper warmth and leafy hop.Flavour had more roasted malts, dark fruits and more tingly pepper, before a gentle finish. Enjoyable. mr_h (6007) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - MAR 28, 2015
