Cask at the Old Market Tavern in Altrincham.

Light black with ruby highlights and a tan head that laced well. Aroma of smoked chocolate (if such a thing exists), and coffee. Intense and lush chocolate flavours dominate the palate, initially similar to a block of dark chocolate, before tailing into a dusty cocoa powder. Dark roast and toffee back this up to add a touch more complexity. Certainly a pleasant and well-constructed range of flavours. Smooth, medium body with restrained carbonation as a result of the cask pour.

This was a damn drinkable porter, and easily sessioned at 4%. Recommended.
