Thin tan head with no lacing. Body is very dark, almost black. Chocolate and coffee on the nose, flavour is more chocolate and coffee followed by some liquorice and berries. Mouthfeel is a bit thin, medium carbonation. Decent effort.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
33cl bottle - sample from Victoria at Stockbridge Market. Pours opaque black with a nice creamy fawn head. The nose is instantly liquorice and maybe even some charcoal. The taste is a little more creamy with gentle chocolate, more liquorice and some cream. The palate is probably the most impressive part of this - a really rich malt profile leads into a large but tight structure. The texture in the mid-section is still rich and very tight. The finish is elegant. Overall, a really well made Porter.

Bottle from Stockbridge Market. Pours very dark letting no light through. Smallish brown head. Nose had lots of chocolate and coffee. Taste is burned coffee and dry dark chocolate. Leaves a slightly sure aftertaste. A fairly traditional porter.
