Wonderful aroma of black berries. Black. No head but good carbonation. Low hopping. Nice buzzing mouth feel. Sweetish, black berries, hint of dark chocolate. Nice.

Pours black with low light tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, German sausage, chocolate, light coffee. Very classic porter. Taste is rich chocolate and vanilla, sweet, before a roasted malt and dark chocolate bitter finish. Light, roasty body with soft carbonation. A very good example of a classical porter, updated nicely.

Bottle from brewery. Obtained during Bermondsey Beer Mile. Pours pitch black with very small head, visually oily. Aroma of chocolate, coffee and black cherry. Lovely smooth mouthfeel. Sweet upfront flavours of cherries and chocolate with hint of coffee, lingering toasted wood. This is quite lovely. My favourite beer from the Mile.

Bottle. Dark brown and quite lively upon opening. Coffee and chocolate are the most dominate flavours. It also has a bitter and sharp edge resulting in a very good beer that is so close to being an excellent one. Really worth trying.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap poured into a wide flute. The aroma is a blend of dark fruits, some citrus, coffee, and milk chocolate. It pours a deep, dark, near opaque coffee black-brown with an effervescence to it and is topped by a brown sudsy head with a good retention and a mild lace. The taste is a medium sweet and medium light bitter. The thin texture has a foamy carbonation with a medium, roasted body. Roasted grains and coffee are noted with some chocolate and it finishes crisp with a burnt chocolate syrup note that sticks around in the aftertaste with a cloying dark chocolate.
