COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle Conditioned, special;
Rich ruby porter. "Postman’s Knock is a beer offering an intelligent blend of complex ingredients, the rich brown beer with a smooth fine head has a very chocolately character. The combination of subtle flavour notes of vanilla, treacle and roast malt gives an initial rich sweetness leading to a velvety chocolate finish."

weaselkenievil (1234) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - APR 21, 2014
Pours dark brown with a medium pale beige head that quickly faded. Aroma cardboad, roasted malt, some spice. Flavour coffee, choc, a little too thin and watery for my liking.

yngwie (12722) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 31, 2013
Bottle, at Cardinal. It’s a clear, brown beer with a medium sized dense, beige head. Roasted malts, nuts and some dried fruits in the aroma. The flavor too is quite roasted, with nuts, dried fruits and a decent bitterness. Medium body, dry on the palate, and with a lasting roasted finish. A typical British porter, and it’squite nice and pleasant. 131019

500 ml bottle at Cardinal. Clear, deep red amber body with a fast disappearing off-white head. Nice, not very strong aroma of dark malt, slightly roasted and a hint of coffee. Flavor is dark malt, light roast, some dark chocolate and coffee with moderate bitterness. Medium body and smooth in aftertaste. A nice and pleasant beer with a smooth, rish flavor at only 4,8 ABV.
