Extremely dark brown, almost black, not allowing any light to penetrate. Head is cake-like and tannish. Aroma has hints of chocolate, some light coffee, dark fruits and sweet malt. Taste is a little lighter than I expected, with flavors of raisins, dates, figs and a touch of coffee in the finish. Overall, feels good on the palate, no alcohol burn(of course its only 5.00 ABV). Was thinking it was going to be a little more bold and bitter, but overall, a great sessionable porter with a decent balance..

It's pretty much a slightly better version of the standard Newcastle Brown ale.

Aroma far surpassed the flavor. Finish was not there.
