Bottled. Dark brown colour, big brown head. Plum, dark dry fruit and weak alcoholic (!!) aroma. Flavour is sweet malty, acidic and plummy. Flavour was very boring compared to the aroma. Also some metallic hints noteable in flavour.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Quite a subtle nose leads into a porter that does exactly what it says on the tin, and does it well. It treads that Porter middle ground, with the dark notes of the best of stouts - some licorice, some chocolate, a good dash of coffee - complimented by the drinkable freshness of a paler ale. If there is any complaint it is a bit thin in the mouthfeel, but generally a well-realised and tasty porter.

BCA (from Bitter Virtue, BBE Sep 06). Smoky roast and baked beens. Ashy smoke dominates the body. Fairly drinkable with food but not great.

Deep dark porter with a medium off-white head. Sweet chocolate in aroma, short lived. Sweet sourish porter rather light and dissapointing, with a watery body. Brought back by Mike from Scotland. Nov. 2005, Mike’s place.
