Draught at Hales Ales Brewery and Pub
Dark brown color, near black, with compact head. Light aroma of roasted malt. Good body strength; soft mouthfeel; it has a moderate flavor of roasted malt and chocolate. Correct bitterness.
More Brown Ale than Porter, not enough round and chocolatey, but pleasant overall.

Bottle… March 08 Tampa Bay Tasting... Clear, burnt orange brew (when held up to bright light); dark, otherwise. Metallic, minerally nose provides restrained notes of cola, chocolate and vanilla. Full-bodied with a velvety mouthfeel and ticklish carbonation. Robust. Well-bittered. Chocolate and roasted nuts. Medium length, smooth, creamy finish. Kudos to Degarth for providing the bottle!
