330ml bottle pours almost black with some red highlights when held to a light source. About 2 fingers of mocha colored head which settles slowly revealing some really nice lacing.

A rather enjoyable porter.

Bottled, 330ml from The North Bar, Leeds (Part of the first run batch of this beer). Deep tawny brown with cream head. Rich, fruity beer, plenty of depth with a hint of vanilla, cherries, plums and toasty bread. Some lingering sweetness, smooth on the palate. A very accomplished beer, good stuff.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
330ml bottle. Pours somewhat thin but this does not detract from the big black colours and the layer of tan foa. Visually eye catching. Coffee and chocolate aromas with a hint of vanilla. There is a sweetness and a silky mouthfeel and a burnt aftertaste. Just like Alice this one does everything you need it do do and then some.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Red-tinted dark brown pour. Huge tan head that is slow to fall and leaves an ample dosing of lacing behind. A fruity, roasty, malt aroma. Little bit of brown sugar notes as well. A peppery sweet malty flavor. Hint of chocolate and coffee. Slightly carbonic and thin because of such. Not bad. There are better porters out there though.
