A 500ml bottle with a BB of April 2012.

Poured into a Sam Smith's pint glass. A deep brownish-maroon hue; carbonation not visible. Produces a large head of light-brown foam that lasts for a couple of minutes. Looks delicious. A subtle aroma of dark roasted malt with sweet undertones. Burnt notes, nuttiness, chocolate and caramel are all present.

The taste is a rich complex of sweet and bitter roasted malt followed by a dry finish. Notes of roasted grain, chocolate, coffee, nuts and caramel. Dry hoppy bitterness upon swallowing. Hints of sherry. Mouthfeel is unctuously smooth with a fantastic body and a light tingling sensation. Distinctive aftertaste of bitter roasted malt.

Excellent balance of sweet and bitter, with a great blend of flavours. Rich, tasty and smooth - just like a good porter should be. Top notch, and well worth trying.

A: Poured a dark,near opaque nature (deep chestnut brown with dark plum highlights around the edges when held up to the light). A one finger frothy dark khaki colored head sits atop with moderately lasting results before leveling to a thin sudsy covering leaving only a slight thin lacing around the glass edges.

S: a dark roasted coffee bean aroma with dried cherries, dark fruit and some bitter chocolate.

T: smooth with a well polished, but deep roasted coffee bean flavor with a dried creamer sweetness sneaking through. The coffee bitterness and earthy minerality (soil) truly highlight the rich nature of this drink. Some dried grapeskins, raisins and a faint dried creamer/chalkiness is found on the finish.

M: nice providing a light-medium viscosity, oily texture while leaving a dry earthy and roasted bitterness behind. The carbonation is soft while there was slight traces of dried coffee creamer/chalkiness left behind.

D: Really good drinkability, rich and dark with a fresh roasted coffee flavor that is sure to put this on the top of your list per style.
