355ml brown bottle poured into a Young's pint pot.

A. Deep black coloured ale with a coffee coloured, tightly packed bubbly head. Head retention is excellent.

S. Coffee, dark chocolate,charred wood, molasses, dark sugar, liquorice, treacle and raisins.

T. Milky , bitter chocolate, smoky, cured ham, liquorice.

M. Full bodied.

D. A beautiful porter, very drinkable and so pleased it is better than the Pale Ale I had. Caresses your taste buds and throat.

pours an oily opaque black. frothy tan one finger. smells dominated by chocolate with backrounds of toffee, raisins, and figs. tastes robust. creamy and milky. dark, rich, and sexy. a bit sweet and ends sour. i love it. for the price ($10.99) it's world class.
