Bought a single bottle from Beers of the World for $ 1.99 on 2/23/14. Poured into a Samuel Smith's pint glass, served cool.

Appearance:Deep, dark blackish brown with a few reddish highlights at the bottom with a 1 finger khaki head, lacing doesn't last very long.

Smell: very deep roasted Barley and then more roast and then more, maybe a touch of fusel.

Taste: Barley syrup, followed by licorice, lots of licorice.

Mouthfeel: solid, good

Overall: good looking, intoxicating aroma, rich yummy taste, decent mouthfeel. Drink. Enjoy.

500ml Bottle from BeersOfEurope website (£2.29):
Mahogany brown with a finger sized, tan coloured head that is quite bubbly looking and also quite creamy, managing to maintain its size well.

Lively sweet notes initially & sugar presence with some caramel and chocolate malts coming through as well. The beer has some of the characteristics of a Foreign Export Stout but these are subtle hints with the bread and biscuit aromas more noticeable here and the sweetness, although present not coming across so strong.

Sweet, dark malts with a solid caramel and chocolate base kick things off, followed by some biscuit malts and a hot of sugar as well. There is a taste of coffee too but this is a mild one with the sweetness covering it for the most part along with some roasted malts and a nice bitterness to it.

Medium bodied and quite lively, particularly at the start when the beer is first poured. There is a mild bitterness from about the middle onwards and the mouthfeel is quite creamy.

A very nice porter that had a good balance with the relatively high abv. well hidden and the mouthfeel a good one. Initially it started quite sweet, almost like FES but this settled some not long after and the darker malts made themselves known.
