Half-pint on cask at the Euston Tap.

A: Clear, nearly black body glows crimson when held up to light. Tight finger of tan head. Great retention, light lace. Nice.

S: Coffee, coffee, coffee. Maybe some malt sweetness as well, but coffee totally dominates. I like it.

T: Coffee, dark chocolate, pale malt, and some earthy hops. The finish is a little watery, but the coffee returns on the aftertaste. Enjoyable.

M: Smooth, light, and moderately carbonated. A little thin for a porter, but pleasant.

O: Solid beer, but somewhat weak and one-dimensional. Worth trying, but not one I'll be looking for in the future.

Cheers!
