Dark beer that lets a bit of light through at the edges. There is a very light tan head that fades but still clings to the edge of the glass. The nose is nice roasted malt and a hint of coffee. The taste has a nice sweetness and very little char or bitterness. There is a bit of a grain flavor and some bitter coffee. Nice creamy, medium mouthfeel. Pretty solid porter.

Love porter, my favorite style lets give this one a whirl. Popping the top I get a waft of some chocolate and roasted malts. Pours to a deep jet black letting no light through with a thin micro-bubble head. On the taste this brew has a godd mouthfeel up front followed wit a nice deep well roasted and semi-sweet chocolate flavor that rolls to the middle of the tongue and gets only slightly bitter and dry on the aftertaste. A solid dark porter that lives up to the description on the bottle of a "rich dark ale". I would repeat this one, no doubt.

It pours medium brown with a medium sized tan head that quickly fades away. Smells faintly of malts and coffee, but the chocolate aroma certainly is striking. Very creamy and smooth feel, all the way down the throat. I wish it was slightly less carbonated, but it isn't too much. Leaves a great aftertaste of roasted malt and chocolate on my palate and in my nostrils. Not bitter at all. The finish is darkly sweet, roasted and smooth. It's hard to describe my love for the feel of this beer. The taste is rather astonishing as well. Overall, it's a very lovely beer and it hits all the marks for an English Porter in my book. I'd highly recommend to anyone who can get their hands on it.

Pours a medium brown color with tan colored head. Roasted malts, chocolate, biscuit, and some light coffee on the nose; follows onto the palate. Medium bodied. Finishes with cocoa and some roast. Decent beer.
