3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. Dark brown, almost black, with a very small, beige head. Lots of coffee and mocca in the aroma, as well as dark chocolate and a vague fruity note. Balanced flavor with roasted malt, chocolate, coffee and dried fruits. A bit thin body and a coffee-ish, roasted, dry, bitter finish. A light, quaffable porter. (060626)

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
275ml bottle from brewery shop. Black with faint ruby edges, thick tan head. Excellent almost peaty malt aroma. This is thick and unctious. Thick heavy tarry roasted malt aromas. Seriously this beats a lot of porters/stouts and impy stouts with bigger reputations. All the intense flavours, but no ridiculous massive hops on finish. This is awesome. Menthol, eucalyptus. Drank at room temperature on Lewes to Ashford train with the Inspiral Carpets.

UPDATED: JUL 31, 2006 This is very complex - treacly, with port-like flavours and aromas, a rich dark fruit character, an oily body, and a
touch of dark chocolate as well. A top five porter.
