COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
With clear notes of espresso, dark chocolate and a hint of authentic Icelandic coffee, this Porter is dark and rich, offering a medium body that is robust, yet smooth on the palate and easy to drink. There’s no need to be afraid of the dark anymore.

jjsint (1184) - Ely, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - MAR 10, 2015
Bottle from White Cross, Lancaster. Purplish black with a quickly dissipating head. Cheap coffee, blackberry, milk chocolate, seawater aroma. Taste is sweet with coffee and fruit notes, with a slight back-of-the-throat salty/savoury note. Odd aftertaste. Mouthfeel too thin and flat. However that doesn’t spoil what is overall a decent experience.
