22 oz. bottle, sent from Glouglouburp (thanks Dany), pours black with a small beige / tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, chalk, coffee and milk chocolate. Flavour of coffee, milk chocolate, some chalk, and slight sweetness. Pretty full-on with the flavours though still quite thin-bodied as with most porters. Very enjoyable.
