Black; thick, dense, rocky beige head; aroma is good - chocolate and bonfires; taste is roast malt, bitter chocolate; quite juicy, with a robust hoppiness; I liked the Black Forest gateau reference someone came up with below; bitter, dryish, oddly herbal finish; it’s good.

Beese (1526) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 6, 2014
Bottle from the brewery. Poured black, with a large, dense tan head. Smokey aroma, with some dark fruit, leather and a rather salty edge. Full mouth feel, with a fair amount of carbonation. Initial flavours of rich port, liquorice and roasted malt. Big warming finish, with some treacle, smooth burnt malt, some grassy hop and toast. One of the finest porters I’ve ever tried.

a very well rounded beer. the chocolate notes, roasted notes and coffee notes are all very balanced, very smooth velvet mouthfeel with a perfect bitter finish. a great example for this style of beer.
