12 Ounce bottle served very cold in pint beer glass

A) Black paint. No color passes through. Short puffy beige helmet dissolves quickly to leave a lacy cover

S) Black licorice, mild hop spice, burnt bread, coriander

T) Burnt coffee, pure dark chocolate, raisons and cooked dark fruit.

M) Consistency of root beer. Ample carbonation, sticky, full bodied

O) A very good example of the classic English porter
