I had this on tap at the brewpub.

Arrives as a very deep, dark, mahogany, almost opaque but not quite. A one finger head of light brown foam, which dropped quickly to a coating and a ring. Very slight lacing.

Aroma is chocolate covered cherries, fruity and roasty. Maybe some brown sugar overtones. Smells scrumptious! Very faint lemony hops as it gets warmer.

This porter tastes like it smells. Chocolate covered cherries, raisins, a nice balancing bitterness, citrusy/grassy hops, dark caramel, and slightly sweet coffee. Delish!

Mouthfeel is sweet on the palate, with a medium carbonation across the tongue and bitterness in the back of the throat. Ends with a slight astringency, even a little heat from alcohol.

This beer is an all-nighter. Not too sweet, not too bitter; just right. A nice representation of an English porter.

Dark, dark reddish brown that seems black under the wrong sort of lighting. The head is small and brown. The head fastly fades, and lacing is minimalistic in nature. The aromas are all sweet malts, roasted malts, and weak/watery coffee. I'm not sure if they we're shooting for a Fullers London Porter clone here, but if they were they surely almost acheived their goal. The taste is lightly chocolate, with some light coffee notes, and some roasty malts in the mix as well. Mouthfeel is medium bodied>thick and drinkability is very good. Another standout. Wow.
