Nice example of the style - not so much chocolate but a lovely coffee flavour with hints of smoke and vanilla. Smooth palate, very moreish.

Cask, Alehouse, Chelmsford, 31st March 2015. Thanks, Alex! Good white lacing. Opaque. Loads of oats and grains and leather on Aroma. Licorice too. Taste is velvet, licorice, leather, blackcurrants. Superbly clean and very drinkable. As a porter this is world-class. No ott roasted notes. A classic trademark porter and this batch is excellent.

On tap @Mad For Beer (Rome) with ippopotamo36. Pours black with a medium beige-cappuccino head. Aroma is roasted malts, coffee and dark chocolate, stunning! Flavour has dark chocolate, coffee and some hers in the end. Round and perfectly balanced, so gently and "English", one of the best porter I’ve ever had. Simply amazinzg, chapeau!

Bottle Ales by Mail. Rich black porter, with big roast aroma and hints of rubber and coffee. A little thin on the palate, sour fruit aftertaste, lingering dry finish.
