Bottle. Near black with a tan head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate and burnt toast. Similar flavours, very well balanced. Decent body with a creamy texture. Very nice

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Black pour. Big tan head that slowly falls, leaving a ton of lacing. Big bubbly, creamy head. Roasted grains and some fruitiness at the front of the nose. Some malt and chocolate at the back. Bitter up front, followed by a nice chocolate malt flavor. Some of the fruity notes carry over into the taste. Nice sweet finish with some black coffee bitterness in the back. Nice beer.

I found out how Waitrose deal with projectile vomiting this evening. Very impressive, they masked their fear of Norovirus very well. I felt very sorry for them. I think my little one just had too much to eat at her Christmas party. Picked up a Kipling but couldn’t find any port at a good price. Good job there’s port in this then. Under strict orders not to eat the cheese though. Wonder if this is the first review to mention Norovirus?

to be honest this is not really very porty, it tastes like a light imperial stout which is no bad thing, lost of coffe on the back taste, this is a really nice alternative to an imperial stout is has the charicteristics but not he alchol level , i will be revisiting this beer and recomend it
