Chagrined to say Iíve never had this. Ouch. Not sure how that happened but this pour from tall can is rich dark strong coffee colour with a thin cap that laces the glass like Jack Frost. Fantastic blueprint porter.

500ml bottle from the brewery shop. Pours dark brown with a reddish hue, thin beige had that doesnít hang around. Big roasty aromas, alongside blackcurrant, liquorice, coffee, chocolate, and the merest smoky note. Really good nose! And the taste delivers! Medium to full body, slightly sticky texture, but overall very impressed with this.
