Dark black color, decent head, surprised I havenít reviewed this before. Maybe Iíve never had it? Aroma was malty, decent. Flavor was malty with slight bits of cocoa and coffee as promised by the label. Overall, a decent porter and something I might pick up if the price happened to be right.
Serving type: bottle

Cask at The Antelope, Sloane Sq. It pours very dark brown with a small beige head. The nose is coffee, light roast, caramel and cooking chocolate. The taste is roasted malt, coffee, nut, toast, plain chocolate, touch of dark fruit with a dry, roasty finish. Medium body and soft carbonation. A solid porter, but nothing particularly special.

Cask sample at In de Wildeman, thanks Simon! Almost black colour, no head. Aroma was of buttery toffee, hard roasted malts, coffee, some dark fruits. Flavour hard roasted malts, coffee and cream, toffee, berries, light chocolate, light bitter finish. Light-bodied. Although nice, I expected a bit more of this.
