Brought from Dunedin by Andrew, thanks man I owe you. Pours a dark cherry color with a very hug beige head. A heavy sour and burnt aroma. A very smooth and full mouthfeel. The taste was mostly a interesting burnt malt and roasted chocolate mix, followed by a bitter soapy finish. Some light coffee also. Very nice. Smooth and easygoing.

500mL Bottle. Black beer with a slight red glow to it. Small light brown head that was short lasting. The beer description on the bottle sums up the beer quite well "Roasty Malty Bitter Dark Ale". The beer has a roasty malt taste then a smooth malt/hop bitterness in the aftertaste.

Bottle @ Aarhus, 2008.
Pours deep, red-mahogany with a small, creamy beige head. Aroma is softly roasted, some dark chocolate. Light and fine carbonation - very fitting for a porter. Flavour is super soft, chocolate, subdued roasted. Finishes with a touch of raisins. A truly inspirational London Porter!
