Regal gold foil covered cap on a 550ml bottle.

A: Pours dark brown with crimson highlights under a solid one-finger thick tan head. Very fine carbonation. Eventually fades to a thin cap and leaves spots of lace.

N: Roast is prominent followed by dark chocolate cream, marshmallows, vanilla, caramel, faint vanilla, dark fruits (raisins, figs, dates, etc.), and bacon. Mmm bacon.

T: Follows nose with a complex array of roast, grainy malts.

M: Full body and medium carbonation. Mellow roast, smooth and creamy finish.

O: Wow - for the style this is amazing. Top notch.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Drank from a Budvar Glass, maybe a little to cold.

A - Love the Sam Smith bottles, nice old school look. Pours a beautiful two finger tanned head, great carbonation, lace has medium hangtime around the glass. Pitch black at first appearance, with ruby tinges when held up against the light.

S - I'm getting molasses, dark fruits, dates, plums, raisins, brandy, marmite, roasted malts, this is a great complex nose.

T - Big roasted malts from the first taste. I get vegemite, burnt wood, molasses flavours that last for a second or two then a slight taste of coffee and chocolate. Hops are not present, but the bitterness is quite well balanced.

M - Smooth, oily, with a reasonably crisp finish.

D - Extremely drinkable, this is my type of porter, I could tip down quite a few of these.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pours black with a tan head.

Smell: nuts toffee & caramel sunk into a dark roasted malt body.

Taste: A spectacular display of rich bittersweet chocolate, roasty malts and loads of toffee flavors.

Mouthfeel: It is well rounded and crisp around the edges, but full and creamy.

Drinkability: This is and excellent easy drinking (sessionable) standard porter.

Hope this is helpful.
