Poured from 750mL corked & caged bottle into a dimpled mug. A pretty fancy presentation for a humble porter!

Appearance: rich brown hue with no haze. Head is a nice layer of creamy tan foam.

Smell: very rich aroma of chocolate, toffee, caramel and coffee, roughly in that order of intensity. One of the most rich and complex aromas I've experienced in a porter.

Taste: roasty but smooth flavor, with more subtle hints of chocolate and toffee. Not quite as complex as the aroma, but I actually think it works very well. I'm a big fan of this.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a good carbonation and a very nice creaminess.

Overall: I'm a porter fan, and this one really hits the spot. It has good complexity where it needs it, but remains highly drinkable. This is a great beer.

Beer bottle (75 cl.) purchased from Le Souffleur de Bières, and tasted in 2014.

Appearance : dark brown color, with tan foamy head.
Smell : malty, roasted, caramel, mild coffee aromas.
Taste & mouthfeel : roasted malts and coffee flavors, with dry bitter finish.
Overall : a nice beer in the style Porter (great London beer style of the 18th and 19th centuries).
