EdKing (2050) - London, Greater London, - MAR 28, 2014
Half at the brewery shared with the thepeter at Thomas’s b’day drink. Opaque very dark brown, off white foam head. Another classic and brilliant porter from Brew by Numbers. Nose is chocolate, black coffee, caramel, roasted malt. Taste is the perfect balance of flavours, not the coffee and roasted malt bombs that are popular right now. Luscious chocolate, moderate coffee and roasted malt, caramel, some dark ruby fruit notes.

jackafholmes (516) - - MAR 28, 2015
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.

1.8.2014. Aroma is very pleasant with coffee beans and liquorice, also some sweetness. Taste is quite roasted with coffee and nice aftertaste of cacao and coffee beans. Quite soft, not burnt. Very nice porter, unfortunately aroma promises even more.
