Cask; Regular. Also available bottled.
Oats are used in the grist of this beer to give body and smoothness, enhancing the roasted barley, giving it complex flavours reminiscent of dark chocolate and coffee. This is balanced by a fresh hop bitterness and dry silky finish.

PorterPounder (5871) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - FEB 20, 2015
Tallahassee, Fl. - ABC Fine Wine & Spirits - Betton - 500 ml bottle. Inky black pour, quickly diminishing khaki colored head. Aroma has some grainy essence to it, a touch of molasses. Flavor is nice and pleasant with some bitter unsweetened chocolate notes, a touch of molasses, some cold day old coffee, some roasted notes permeate in the back end. Nice, smooth mouthfeel.

Aurelius (4524) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - FEB 19, 2015
Smells like an ESB -- aley, slightly candied, plummy, some darker fruit. Doesn’t smell roasted. Good potato masher bottle, perfunctory label. Very dark but clear beer. Smooth, sweet, peaty malt, low bittering, cherry (brown ale ) notes. Cherry malty finish. Really comes off as an ESB or Scotch. Enjoyable, but lacking some carbonation or mouthfeel at times. Liquors, Betton.
