Pours out a dark brown almost black color with a sticky looking head. The smell is immediately bittersweet cocoa and coffee and again the vinous smell that I get from these English ales. It is nice roasty smell of a deliciously dark rich porter. The taste is wonderfully complex and rich. I'm getting plenty of dark chocolate notes, coffee, smoke, and some sweetness like a toasted marshmallow. The hops are in the background adding a nice finish. The mouthfeel is smooth and creamy. This is a superb Porter which most should be judged against.

3.78/5 rDev -10%

A - Deep, dark brown. Sloshes around in the glass nicely with a solid head.
S - Burned sugar, char, peat and roasted malt. Could be fuller.
T - Char, mildly toasted malt. Roastiness and burned caramel. Unfortunately I can't help finding regular porters taste watered down compared to their Imperial brethren.
M - Smooth, and appropriately carbonated. A little thin and watery.
O - An easy-drinking and very sessionable porter which I'd gladly opt for if having a few pints with friends at a pub.
Serving type: on-tap
