Massive pour at pivni in York.
Served with a thin layer of a creamy off white head. This baby is pretty damn dark. Can get some light to shine through at the top when held to the light. Aroma is big time sweet dark chocolate. Very nice. Taste is really chocolate forward without having an acrid or bitter lingering finish. Well done. If you like a chocolate beer this is a good one. Reminds me of a sweet or milk stout as it has a nice slightly sweet finish with just a bit of carbonation zing.

500ml Bottle conditioned: BBD 7th Aug 2013, poured at home some 8 days earlier into an 'Abbot Ale' glass tankard.

Lovely black colour with a full and lasting beige head.

Chocolate esters and tastes rule the brew completely, rich and creamy feel to the whole brew: a chocolate orange flavour arrives as the beer warms in the glass, which sets it apart from other Porters I've tried.

Really enjoyed this beer, my fourth and final bottle during a 'random tasting evening' I undertook with myself.
