Pours almost black with a thin head which dissipates quickly. A very inviting smell of dark cocoa and espresso. Followed by a very similar taste which also includes hints of malts. The flavours linger quite nicely. Feels like a perfect balance of silky smooth and creamy.

Quickly becoming one of my favourite porters.

Pours a jet black with minimal Khaki head. Smells of smoked fish, raisins, a hint of chocolate with some lovely espresso notes. The taste is of sweetened molasses and rich chocolate and prunes. Medium heavy mouthfeel with just a touch of carbonation makes it go down nice and easy.

This is a really easy drinking porter that was perfect for the winter ht that was upon me.

4.38/5  rDev +3.1%

Appearance: It has a nice jet black color to it. It has a nice creamy beige head that dies down moderately and leaves some spotty lacing.

Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of sweet roasted malts, dark chocolate, some coffee/espresso and some molasses.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has some sweet roasted malts, rich chocolate, bitter coffee/espresso and molasses.

Mouthfeel: It has a low/med carbonation with a very nice overall balance and feel.

Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied with great flavors and aromas. Great porter.
