4.5/5  rDev +7.1%

A: Black and thick looking. Cream head and some lacing on the sides.

S: Chocolate and malt. The aroma is more intense than I expected.

T: Wow. This is just great. Chocolate, yeast, toast, toffee and caramel, brown sugar. The flavors all work well together and are very intense. Awesome.

M: Very smooth and creamy. Medium but heavy side.

O: Great porter. It's smooth, perfectly balanced, and has those wonderful English style flavors.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

500ml can into nonic pint. reads "30 04 15" on the bottom of the can, which i'm guessing is a best before date of april 30, 2015. enjoyed immensely on august 13, 2014

a: a very deep brown with dark ruby highlights, almost cola-like. almost two fingers of foamy tan head

s: chocolate and raisins up front. coffee, caramel, maybe cherries? some tobacco and smoke notes too

t: follows the nose. "rich, dark & complex" written on the can is a very accurate description. tons of chocolate up front, coffee afterwards, then toffee and the aforementioned dark fruit notes bring a mild but really pleasant sweetness. hints of syrup too? a delicious roast-char-smoke-tobacco character comes out towards the end. finishes with cocoa tastes and a drying coffee-like bitterness

m: creamy light to medium body. mild carbonation. nice!

o: one of my favourite beers ever. it's great that it's available and affordable too. a very wonderful low abv flavour bomb
