(En fût à la brasserie): Anis, tabac, torréfaction, chocolat noir et leur acidité. La texture avec son équilibre sucre/acidité/sécheresse sont simplement parfaites. Un grand liquide.

Cask at Hoghead. So good. Dark chocolate and coffee with a hint of fruity esters. Great mouthfeel and body. One of the best porters around.

(Draught) pours deep black, thick almost nitro like tan head. Nose is nutty, cream, super chocolaty grain, milk chocolate, rich, complex and smells great. Taste of malt balls, medium dark chocolate, cream, light hops to balance everything. Nice beer.

On cask. Pours black with amazing head retention. Chocolate, caramel, toffee, and a nuttiness. Very clean, dry finish. Fantastic. What the style should strive to be.

From growler. Pour is cola brown with no head. Nose has a light roast, a decent bit of coffee grounds, and lots of rich chocolate malty goodness. Taste isn’t quite as rich as the nose but has similar components, roasted malt and coffee grounds with a light bitterness. The rich chocolate malt isn’t quite as strong but still there. Chewy full body, decent carbonation and a crisp finish.
