This is a very nice, solid porter with a rich, foamy, tan head over a very dark, essentially black, body.
In taste, it's smooth with a lively but full texture and a full range of flavours, with elements of chocolate, caramel, toast, and stewed fruit and a faint hint of coffee. The flavour is rich but very being well-balanced and very smooth and drinkable.
I've had it from the cask and on tap. From the cask, it is overall more mild but has a stronger peppery and caramel qualities.
Serving type: cask

A: Pours black, with a mocha head.
S: Really nice roasted malt, dark roast coffee and chocolate in the nose.
T: Taste is pretty much the same. Roasted malt, dark roast coffee, dark chocolate. Robust, like a good porter should be.
M: Medium bodied, average carbonation. Not great.
O: While it could be perhaps a bit smoother, it's a good porter. Pretty typical of the style.
Serving type: on-tap

Appearance This AP was very dark in color with some nice purple highlights. The head came up just right and was a beautiful off-white in color.
Smell Theres a strong milky kind of coffee aroma here thats mixed with some light, high quality chocolate. The malts are light and make a good, solid slightly-roasty base to the nose.
Taste The big black coffee comes out to play. Theres a lot more sugar in here than I gathered from the nose, and the alcohol comes on a bit as well. Its kind of like red wine or a tawny port.
Mouthfeel This is medium-bodied and maybe even a little stingy from the alcohol.
Drinkability This was a little rough around the edges, especially coming from the tap, but I enjoyed it.
Serving type: on-tap
