Keg at foleys, Leeds. Black with a small off white head. Aroma is farmy and reminds me of mocha coffee from a machine (in a good way...........I think). Taste is sharp and clear: smoky bitterness and sweetish tartness. Medium/thin body with slight prickly carbonation. Good.

Bottled, 330ml from Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. Black with cream head. Full and smooth porter, there are rich, darkly roasted malts to the fore, roasted coffee hints with a light bitterness. Liquorice flavours play a part in addition. Deep and very pleasant flavours. Good stuff.
