4.5/5  rDev +7.7%

Lower abv than most modern American porters, but with more complexity. Great beer.

550ml bottle. Pours a deep ruby brown colour with a creamy tan head which lasted well and left lace plimsoll lines on drinking. Roasted malt aroma with hints of dark chocolate. Initial mild sweetness develops into a moderate roasted character and then into a lingering medium bitterness. Medium body and creamy texture. Very easy drinking. One for those that appreciate dark chocolate.

A: Very dark brown, no carbonation visible through it. Short and short-lived light tan head that leaves only a collar.

S: Roasted malt, chocolate, sweet toffee, light coffee.

T: Oats, chocolate, biscuit, a faint tanginess/acidity. A kind of earthiness permeates it all; maybe I'm just thinking of that ancient well. Dry and slight bitterness. Faint floral soap. Moderate chocolate finish.

M: Very nicely thick, a little oily, lively carbonation.

O: What a fantastic brew! Big flavor, big body, perfectly dry while still offering some typically sweet flavor, and a sessionable ABV. I feel like I took a step back into history.
