Dark brown with a smaller head, not very viscous, seems thin... Aroma is sweet stick with big notes of dark fruits... Very malty flavor, nutty, dark fruits, mild chocolate notes... Lots of flavor for 5.5%, not as sweet as it smells.. Very good, Flavourful, as it would be spelled some would say more correctly...

Bottle, Big Bang, Oxford. Dark caramel, small layer of tan. Plumy fruit aroma, dry toast, chocolate. Soft, very pleasant. Dry caramel flavor, soft roast, a touch of coffee and chocolate. Substantial body, dry, gentle finish. A really decent porter. (Yes, it’s a porter.) Wish I could find it from the cask.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle shared with Veitafan. Pours a clear reddish brown colour with a small beige head. Careful aroma of some wood, leather, malt, rye bread, dried fruit and hint of chocolate. More pronounced flavour of the same but with a fruityness that feels a bit belgian. Nice. Has a slick mouthfeel, and a light bitterness. A balanced and good Christmas ale.
