Taste & mouthfeel : roasted malts and coffee flavors, with dry bitter finish.
Overall : a nice beer in the style Porter (great London beer style of the 18th and 19th centuries).

Poured in Tulip glass
Good till: Nov 2 '14
App: Pours a dark brown with a nice red hue when held up to the light. Nice 3 finger head which recedes and laces quite well.
Smell: Rich malty aroma, minerally, slight licorice, roastiness, some cocoa, molasses and sweet smells in there.
Taste: Lots of flavor from the mixture of dark malts & barley, cold brewed coffee with milk, some toffee sweetness contrasting a bit of licoriceness. There's a molasses syrupness about the beer along with a milky quality. A modest but noticeable hop ending and a slight metallic bite.
Side note: I've read that this was brewed with 7 different malts and is a blend of different beers, one even fermented with Bretts. I think I read that in 'Amber, Gold and Black' (a book one should definitely check out if interested in the history of English beer) but I'm not sure if the recipe is still the same.
None the less, a very good porter, and a must try for porter fans. Definitely has a strong malt profile which gives quite a character to this porter. It's not the best, but it's not too miss either.
