Really good porter that is on-style. Not overdone but giving a nice hearty falvor, with caramel and toast and a balancing hoppiness.

Bottle at home. Coffee and chocolate. Pours a dark brown with a thin head. Smooth and ends a bit oaky. Very yummy beer.

Dark brown, medium small tan head. Aroma toasty malt and cocoa. Medium-light body. Flavor sweet up front but ends a tad drier. There’s roasted nutty flavors, chocolate, caramel. Tasty.

Cask at Streets of London (downtown venue) in Sacramento. Pours dark brown with a beige smear. Aroma of smooth dark malt and chocolate. Full bodied. Flavor is chocolate with a touch of coffee over smooth dark malt. Did I mention this was smooth? Finishes with a little oak and/or earthiness. A delight to drink.

Cask at streets of London four beer week. Aroma is coffee, flavour is so much more! Coffee, milk chocolate, the oats really smooth everything out and turn the palate into velvet. Finished on the sticky sweet side. Amazing! Also going to sample this on tap. Wow, so much better on cask! I think it needs to warm up a bit from the tap... But much better than the porters I’ve had this week!

Tap at HAF. Brown pour with light tan head. Smells and tastes of caramel, toffee, chocolate. Very thin in the mouth. Not a bad beer, but a disappointment for me.
