4.75/5  rDev +14.7%

Poured into a over sized snifter

Beautiful thick head that fades fairly quickly

Expresso, dark chocolate with some rum and raisins

Light and creamy mouth feel. On the palate i taste coffee, dark chocolate and chocolate milk shake

Really tasty porter that has the perfect layers of flavor whilst being super drinkable. Love it

4.18/5  rDev +1%

Poured in a pint glass.

App: 2 finger tan head that recedes rather quickly

Smell: Roasty coffee, burnt toast, bit of soda/cola aspect, dark chocolate, and maybe some dark fruits playing in there

Taste: Creamy mouthfeel but thin body, coats the mouth. Just enough carbonation to have a slight prickle on the tongue. Dark chocolate, bit of an acidic quality that comes from coffee or dark chocolate. Dark fruits. Some molasses like qualities. All followed up with slight piney hop taste.

Great porter. Very drinkable but not lacking on the flavor. More of a classic british taste.
