Pours an almost opaque black with a medium head. Aromas of roasted chocolate malt and a touch of raisins. Drank this at room temperature to capture the full flavour of roasted malt, a nice burnt taste and coffee.

Bottle. Got this one on trade from kaggie97, thanks Kevin! Pours a dark cherry color with a nice thick head. Not a jet black beer, but a deep black cherry with decent lacing. Nose is awesome with raisins coming quickly, sweet and strong with coffee and burnt sugar. This beer smells like those wonderful raisin cookies that my wifeís Grandma Walters used to make with the sweet dough and raisins mixing wonderfully. Body is medium, which surprised me a little as I expected more from it. Little to no carb (itís an English brew, what should I expect?) and I believe that is a fault. Taste is of coffee sweetness when it hits the buds, then sort of slides into a coffee bitterness and a nice creaminess as it warms. You definitely need to let this one warm to a decent temp. I was too eager... Beautiful long finish on the flavors, burnt malts and roasted bliss, but no real hop flavor. Good overall taste, but Iíd like a little more hops. What else is new? Still a quality, kick ass porter.

Pours a deep dark ruby, almost black color. Nice roasted coffee aroma. Rich aroma. Delicious. Deep rich roasted coffe like bitterness. Wonderful burnt, roasty flavor from start to finish. I was wondering if this was really that good. It is.

Very dark appearance with a garnet edge. Toffeeish, roasted chocolate malt aroma shifting slightly to dark fruits. Exceptionally smooth, full bodied taste with subtle carbonation. Medium length finish.

UPDATED: JAN 11, 2005 Cask, hand-pump at the Swan in the Rushes, Loughborough. The best porter Iíve ever had, and one of the best beers, full stop. Malty, chocolatey aroma, with a superb, complex flavour of malts, caramel, chocolate, coffee and more. Full bodied, creamy. Fantastic. Bottle, 11/01/05 Question; Is the bottled version as good as the cask? Very close, but the cask has it by a nats.
