12 oz brown bottle with no freshness date. Thanks to bocktech for the sample.
Appearance: The head looks like a superbly frothed cappuccino leaving thick rings of lace down the glass. Two shades away from total black, you can make out some deep red highlights.
Smell: Sweet malts with a mild roasted tone in the back and a silkiness of the oats.
Taste & Mouthfeel: Creamy smooth, very luxuriant in the mouth with its full body. Thick underlying coffee flavour throughout with a nice heavy hand of sweetness that is restrained by the roasted malt and hop bitterness. Finish bitter sweet with a lingering creaminess.
Notes: I could certainly quaff a few pints of this, nice to see a long smoothness in a porter rather than the harsh crispness that some do have. A choice pick if you can get your hands on some.
