On tap at le cheval blanc.
Jet black pour, mocha head. Huge roasty aroma, big notes of coffee and cocoa. Viscous mouthfeel, and a very dry bitter finish with lingering notes of espresso. Solid porter, but really bordring on a stout.

Draft at Cheval Blanc. Pitch black. Stable khaki head. Lovely aroma! Also the palate is silky smooth and chocolate with late acidity. Mature and sophisticated and extremely good. Everything is perfect here. Really really good.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours black with a big fluffy beige/khaki head, which settles to a decent level. No lacing. Aroma is a smooth roasted one, with notes of chocolate. Fruity notes as it warms, with a slight tartness bordering berries. Flavour is roasted, tart, fruity and dusty with an alcohol note building up for the finish. Tart, alcoholic finish; feels stronger than the 5.2%. Still pretty well-balanced though. 17.05.12.
