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.
