Pours a dark brown with a coffee coloured head that fades pretty fast. Not that great looking, to be honest.

Oh wow. So rich. Some massive roasty, molasses notes come through straight away. Very exciting. Exactly what I was after in this porter.

This is a fine porter. Chocolate flavours are there, perfectly balanced with roastiness and husky flavours. Very light bitterness supports the ample sweetness. Just great.

I wish it was a little more viscous, but that's just me. Pretty creamy.

A very good porter.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

After being told of by others to try / much blather / hype, I've had a bottle for about 2 months chilling and finally cracked'r open:

Color / Aroma: Porter black-brown, with nominal carbonation and limited smell

Taste: cold, heavy, and alluring; it's about time something lived up the one's high expectations. Aftertaste is nearly non-existence--meaning smooth finish.

Drinkability: it's a porter's porter; a new classic standard in my book of poor imitators / wannabes. Wish I had another right now; gotta go get me some mo'.

Cheers on this one.
