3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark, virtually opaque black, with a creamy coffee coloured foam. Liqueur chocolate prominent in the aroma, with a touch of alcohol coming through .On tasting it starts quite mild, but it builds up soon after with a long lasting bitterness that carries on well into the aftertaste. Unfortunately the body is just a little too weak to hold up to all this, with the flavours unsupported. A worthy drop though.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Full black body with tan minimal and puncturing head, oily, smooth - the mouthfeel is great. Stron aroma of roasted malt, oak, coffee, darko chocolate and raisins. Taste is complex, full of dry roast and coffee, followed by chocolate sweetness and plums, then comes back to being dry in the coffee-ash aftertaste. A great english porter, gotta get some stronger and BA ones from Harviestoun.

Det här var en seriöst bra sak, smaken var sammetslen med sköna toner av choklad, sötma och kaffe. Nej, det här var en riktigt fin sak och jag kan inget annat än att rekommendera denna öl för alla.
