Keg at The Bottle Shop, Bermondsey, London. A very dark brown coloured pour with a very thin beige head on top. Roasty, malty, chocolate, caramel on the nose. Tastes pretty much the same, roasty, malty, chocolate, caramel, slightly sweet. A little thin but still a very drinkable porter from Alesmith.

Keg at Bottle Shop. It pours near black with a medium light tan head. The aroma is bitter - sweet, chocolate ice cream, cookie dough, mellow roasted malt and light spice. The taste is smooth, rich roasted malt, cocoa, cookie dough, earth, wood, fudge, chocolate ice cream with toasty finish. Medium body and fine, pickly carbonation. Well rounded and really drinkable.
