Draft. A red-brown beer with a thin beige head. The aroma has notes of roasted malt and coffee. The flavor is sweet with notes of roasted malt and coffee, leading to a dry finish.

chocolate velvet. that’s what it tasted and felt like going down the throat. might normally be a bit thin for a porter but it’s just so smooooooooth. and the chocolate is beautiful. given its thinness it is also eminently quaffable, and i wouldn’t have much of an issue if it came to that.

Appears a dark, clear and coffeeish in colour with minimal head but there’s a sparkle of carbonation. The first and overhelming aroma is of charry coffee and I though "Oh bugger. Another one." It seems the easiest flavour to apply to porter is coffee and charry roast with what seems like a heavy hand with roast barley. But then I thought about it. It isn’t pretending to be a coffee porter, rather a sessionable dark beer and that’s what it is. You can happily sit down with a couple of pints. Maybe a couple more and for all the char and coffee you could happily have a couple more. In this was it is similar to the Dux Black Shag Stout without masquerading as a stout. My main gripe is the body. It is a little thin for a porter and a dark ale is probably a more appropriate description. Otherwise, sessionable and likeable. A beer of potential with a few tweaks to the recipe.
