5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
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.

Gravity cask at the Cambridge Beer Festival 2015. Dark, almost black, with a loose tan head. Roast coffee and pitted fruit in the aroma. Sweet and naughty taste: liquorice, alcohol and burnt toast. Surprisingly bitter finish. Creamy mouthfeel. Nice. Very nice.

On tap at Anspach & Hobday, pours black with a small tan head. Nose brings out roasted malt and cocoa. Flavour is fairly robust, with cocoa, roasted malt and a little espresso. Robust and full-bodied for a porter. Very good stuff.

Completely black beer, thick dark beige head. A worderful aroma with roasted malts, coffee and chocolate. The taste is bitter with coffee and chocolate. Could be a bit sweeter. Body is full, carbonation is very good. A very good porter! Yammy.
