BlairExcellent08 Feb 2011 This beer has improved steadily since I first tried it and thought it was pretty mediocre, now it's a lovely beer. Roasted malt, a little fruit in there and a bit of smoke, great body to boot.

BlairGood22 Oct 2010 Tastes better than when I first had it but still a tad watery. Has all the qualities you want in a porter just needs to amp it up a bit.

IanGood20 Mar 2010 Best Wantsum beer I have had. Good choc and coffee flavours. Lovely porter style beer. Good flavour, excellent finish.
BrianExcellent08 Jan 2010 Said excellent may just have been good, but it was the first pint for a week. Had a couple. It's black, roasty malt with bitter finish. A bit thin perhaps, no real punch, but had 2 without noticing. Good stuff really.
