No head. Dark cherry, malt nose. Roasted burnt caramel, light lingering sweet finish. Satisfying, not complex, and not cloying as other sweet porters. Solid and at 4.4 abv I could session all day. Great!

Bottle from Asda. Clear, dark, conker brown. Bubbly, but lasting, beige head. Liquorice. Cocoa. Prune. Light ash. Taste is ash dry. Date sweet, too. Some rum and raisin chocolate on the palate. Dry finish. Some bitterness at the end. Acorn do know how to brew a tasty, dark beer.

500ml bottle. Clear darkest brown with average, creamy to frothy, minimally lacing, off-white to beige head. Minimally sweet and roasty dark malt aroma, a touch of coffee. Very soft palate. Taste is minimally sweet dark malty with dry, roasty notes, a touch of chocolate and a constant bitter hoppy overtone. Nice.

jamesie1857 (1769) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 16, 2012
500ml bottle - pours black with a respectable white head that laces down the glass. Espresso aroma, smoky and liquorice first taste, with an oily mouthfeel. Bitter after taste that holds for well over a minute a sip. It deserves a chance if you see it and are wondering "should I buy it?"... I would.
