Bottled, 330ml from Sainsbury’s in Banbury. Black with cream head. Initially a fairly tangy, prickly beer, fruity, fullish on the palate. From there a fruity sweetness shows through, some caramel, milky chocolate. A pretty decent beer.

maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - JAN 19, 2014
UPDATED: MAR 23, 2014 Bottled 10/01/14. A black beer with a grey wisp of head and a bit of beige in the lace. A bit of smoke in the otherwise thin nose. Decent dark malts in the mouth. Chocolate and, again, smoke. Easy to drink and pleasant enough but a bit underwhelming really. Score 3.3
Subsequent ratings scored 3.8, 3.4, 3.8 and 3.6. Average becomes 3.6

john44 (556) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 9, 2014
Bottle - Very Dark Brown (almost Black) in colour. Very Malty; roasty malts, coffee, dark chocolate, caramel, hints of smoke. Fruity; dark fruits, prunes, raisins. Hoppy; some hop bitterness. Decent malt/fruit/hop balance. Smooth; subtle, tasty. Sweetish roast malty, quite dry, some hop bitterness in the finish. Liked this a lot. Nice Porter!
