Aroma of chocolate, light coffee roastiness and a touch of red grape. Appearance was dark amber with bone head. Flavor matched the nose, but with the roast level brought up a notch. Palate is soft and oily. Average.

On tap in an English pint. Pours black with a cream-colored head. Aroma of the chocolate and smokiness of the porter. Light texture like a Guinness, and the flavor is good but not overpowering. A pretty good beer, but porters aren’t really my style and it’s sort of light for me.

UPDATED: SEP 27, 2010 Nice dark color, cream color head. Rich chocolate taste but it doesn’t overpower. The flavor does not linger. Some beers leave a bitter after taste but not this one.

On nitro tap at Cock & Bull.
A nice, well rounded, porter served on a nitro tap. Not a ton of aroma or flavor, but does contains hints of roasted malt. Some burnt flavors stick out as well. Smooth palate and easy to drink.
