A combination of chocolate malt, crystal malt and roasted barley produce the subtle series of smooth flavours in this dark beer, whilst a balance of dry bitterness and spicy aroma is achieved by a late hop of Goldings.

Malty aroma and coffee notes. Pours dark with red glint and bubbly tan head. Sweet toffees and fruit predominate with sour flavours at the back. Expected a richer palate and fuller body. But a solid porter ale.
