A: Dark brown to amber in color with a big, fluffy, light brown head. Good lacing and retention.
S: Huge aromas of chocolate, some coffee, and roasted malt. The dark chocolate really stands out. Fantastic for a Porter. Maybe some spices in there, too. A lot of good stuff going on.
T: Similar to the nose...full of chocolate and roasted malt. Some charred and earthy qualities. A very tasty beer that I would drink anytime.
M: The body is spot-on for the style, if not better than usual and closer to a stout. Not watery like some. Carbonation is there. The flavor never fades and provides a great finish.
O: Superb stuff here. Very easy-drinking. Well done, Berkshire!

Growler to pint.
A- A nice darkness to this porter. Sadly no head like I read in other reviews. I think that might be due to the growler.
S- Dark bitter Chocolate with hints of roasted malts.
T- Dark Chocolate, roasted malts, tiny bit of coffee. Front of the tongue brings the malts and the more I drink the more the chocolate taste sits on the back of my tongue.
M- Slightly carbonated but dark, creamy and delicious.
O- Overall a good porter. I love the creamy chocolatey finish.

22 oz bottle poured into a tulip.
Appearance: Poured a jet black with two fingers of nice, foamy khaki head that fades to a nice chunky lacing.
Smell: Up front with a good deal of chocolate and cocoa, and some roastiness too. I get a whiff of coffee but this porter smells more sweet than roasty as some do.
Taste: Chocolate first with hints of roasted barley and more dark, rich chocolate. Very smooth tasting with a bit of coffee and subtle bitter notes, fantastic.
Mouthfeel: Medium to full bodied with a silky smooth texture. Quite creamy and complex while avoiding to be too filling.
Overall: This is a delicious porter here from BBC, and even better at just 6.2%, yet tasting bigger. Putting down a bomber won't leave you stumbling and this is a good one.
