    At Copenhagen Beer Festival. Dark brown (nearly black) colour, moderate tan head. Lightly roasty aroma and flavour, also some floral and fruity notes, hints of chocolate. Light bodied, but nice and drinkable.

    A good British porter goes well with anything, including bangers and mash! A beautiful mahogany colour with a thich long lasting head. Roasted malt, coffee, and licorice dominate the aroma, while the coffee bitterness dominates the flavour. beautifully balanced.

    Draught. Very dark ruby brown colour, very close to black. Aroma is yeast, hops, mild roasted malts as well as some chocolate. Flavour is quite sweet and mildly acidic fruityness along with roasted malts. As it warms up also some coffeeish and chocolateish notes become present in the flavour too. Nice, but still quite watery.

    Almost black, with a large creamy light brown head. Vague aroma of coffee beans and vanilla. Smooth flavout of coffeebeans, cocoa with notes of sweat. Light aftertaste of coffee, almond and hay. A very laid-back porter

    Poured a dark reddish brown color with a thick creamy light tan head and nice lacing. Sweet chocolate and vanilla aroma, although maybe slightly skunky? Creamy chocolate and coffee, possibly alittle oxidized?

    Dark, with a light colored, creamy head. Not rich or full-bodied like some other porters, this is smooth and creamy. Pretty enjoyable.
