Fantastic porter. How it should be. Looks great - black with thick tight brown head. Aroma is full rich chocolate. Taste is thick, well balanced between sweet first and bitter aftertaste. Bloody good.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.
