Poured from a 22oz bottle marked Limited Spring 2010, into a Sparhawk pint glass (also a good beer)
A: Pitch, black goodness. It looks thick, pours more like an oil than a beer.
S: Lots of toffee, sweet, coffee, chocolate, and alcohol.
T: Coffee, toffee, a slightly earthy finish, and some alcohol on the aftertaste.
M: Given the big flavour, it's rather light on the pallet. It reminds me of BBC's Coffee House Porter; velvety and rich, but not as thick as you'd think.
D: Very easy to drink. One could drink many of these with no problem at all. The 9 plus per cent ABV is well hidden.
Mind you, I'm drinking this in 80* weather, with humidity, and it's still easy to drink. I reckon this would be a good year round beer.
