rbrazell (1698) - Florida, USA - MAR 2, 2013
Deep brown pour with tan head that lasts forever. Piney, floral and citrus hop aroma with roast and touches if chocolate. Flavor is pretty similar with more roast and a bitter finish. Loaded with carbonation and a medium body. Petty tasty.

DanielBrown (4474) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 16, 2017
Bottle from Ruprai, Kings Heath. Glossy, glistening black. Smooth body, sweet, light, easy drinking Porter. Subtle booze builds gradual incline. Some nice hop flake notes.

Good roasted notes with hints of coffee, resin and hoppy, dark brown with a good head, light body, medium carbonation, not too hoppy with a good balance with roasted malts...simple but quite intense and good.

Towey1989 (2449) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 21, 2017
Keg at Spout Cafe, Leek. A deep brown colour with a medium tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate, coffee, some dark fruits, some orange, maybe pine/spruce, a little liquorice, a hint of treacle and subtle grassy, herbal hops. Taste of roasted malts, dark fruits, liquorice, some chocolate, slight coffee, burnt caramel, a little orange, pine, a hint of grapefruit, treacle and subtle grassy, herbal hops. Medium bodied and moderate carbonation. A dryish, juicy dark fruit and grassy, herbal hop bitterness in the finish. A lot fruitier and hoppier than I expected. Juicy dark fruits and traditional, roasty porter characteristics with slight citrus, pine and grassy, herbal hops. Very good.

Bijl (492) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 12, 2017
Zwart/zeer donker bruin, crmekleurige schuimkraag, troebel, ongefilterd. Aroma: Hoppy, wrang, bessen, fruitig, aards, droppig en zoethout. Smaak: In begin zoetig en ook wrangheid van donkere bessen, fruitig en citrus/mango. Dit gaat over in donkere mout, chocolade en volle roasty koffie. De NZ hops zitten echt in het begin...idd een black IPA. Of een gedryhopte porter... what ever. In ieder geval lekker. Moutig, medium bitter, wat koolzuur prikkelig en aards grassige hinten. Medium body, afdronk is roasty, koffie met een fruitige / hoppy lange smaak. Zeer goed.

Deep black with a brown thin head. Treacle notes with a little hoppiness. a little nutty too. Slightly too carbonated for me but otherwise nice.
