330ml Can: Pours a jet black with thick, frothy tan head. Lacing. Aroma of grapefruit, molasses and a slight roasty note. Slight coffee flavours with dark, bitter chocolate and citrus from the hops. Beer is medium bodied, carbonation is medium and the finish is bitter. Overall the beer is big on flavour. The roastiness is low and well balanced by the hops.

330ml can, filtered, from BeersOfEurope. Brewed at BrewDog. Like the other Yeastie Boys beer I've had which was brewed by BrewDog, it tastes like a BrewDog beer. I can drink this, but it doesn't excite me. It has flavours and stuff, and it delivers alcohol, but it's on a different beer track to that which I am more comfortable. I am at this point realising that I do not like "craft beer" (or the modern American plastic approach to brewing beer, used closed fermenters, and a throwaway yeast, and lots of hops). I can drink this stuff, but it doesn't touch my soul. This is a dark fizzy beer with hops. Yeah, that sentence sums it up. Some people will not even understand what is wrong with that sentence, and they are the ones that'll enjoy this, I guess.. BeardedAvenger (1128) - Addlestone, Surrey, ENGLAND - SEP 14, 2017
£1 at M&S Brooklands. Coffee and malts. Sour berry edge. Dark and glossy, brown tints. Thick frothy beige head. Starts off quite smooth before the bitterness peaks. Quinine kick to the taste which mirrors the aroma. Medium bodied. Slick,.a.certain creaminess. Soft carb. Dry finish. A very good hoppy porter. wantednz (7) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - SEP 5, 2017 does not count

Tasted this at the Shilling Brewery, Glasgow on the 28th July 2017. Keg dispense. Dull black in colour with a thin buff head. Malty aroma with hints of coffee and liquorice. Thin oily mouthfeel and poor lacing. Dark complex chewy malts deliver a strong maltloaf backbone with strong black coffee, liquorice and dark chocolate notes present in the mouth. There is a slight hop prickle present in the slightly dry aftertaste. Finish is malty with dry flavours of bitter dark chocolate and liquorice more dominant on the palate. A decent porter - just a pity it wasn’t on cask!

Can. Black with a fat residing foam. Scent medium toasted malt. Taste mature roasted malt and caramelised flavors. Mature but fairly simple. Very good. pictoman (1212) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 16, 2017
Poured from the tap. Very dark brown with beige head. Lots of dark chocolate with some mild roast malt and light grass hops. Interesting blend, decent, but not complete harmony. Good nonet-the-less. The bar (Roundhouse Hong Kong) wrongly advertises it as a Black IPA which I disagree with. Vighals (4461) - SÃ¸rumsand, NORWAY - JUL 1, 2017
Svart med høyt beige skum. Lukter animalsk, lakris, krutt og kaffe. Middels fylde. Søtlig lakris, mørke frukter, noe kandis og mørke frukter. Palme (4823) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUN 29, 2017
0.33l can. This one pours a brown, dark brown colored body with a nice medium sized beige head on the top. Nice small dots down the glass. On the nose it’s mild roasted. A little bit of milk chocolate, some elder hoppy citrus tones. Doesn’t smell bad at all, well hopped. It has a thin oily texture in the mouth and it’s above average on the carbonation. Big bubbled. Tastes very old. Dusty and a little roasted. Old tea, it’s very minerallic and mouthdrying. Almost a little tart woody. Roasted dusty and dryish tail with hints of coffee. Absolutely drinkable this, though I don’t feel a huge needs for seconds. 29.06.2017 MonsterMagnet (1568) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 27, 2017
Can, pours black with an off white head. Aroma is like walking in a spruce forest on a rainy morning. taste is a bit thin, dry roast with pine and resin. Firm bitterness, low sweetness, dry cocoa powder finish.
