intense burnt smell and taste, smooth, but thin maybe bit too thin. Intense malt in taste but also bitterness from hops is there.

Opaque dark brown beer, small pale tan head. Palate is crispy and dry. Lots of dark chocolate here with a little chocolate powder on top. Touch of tangy dark fruits. There isn’t a lot of dark malt! Chocolate aftertaste. Tasty and err quite chocolatey porter.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask-conditioned at the Beer Emporium, Bristol 14/2/2014. Black in colour with a decent, off-white head. Dominated by plain chocolate upfront, with a touch of sweetness, before some toasted malts and a dryish finish. I found the chocolate was a bit overpowering.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Overall malty aroma. Vague hints of smoke and caramel in the nose.
Great appearance: dark brown, no light passes through. Minimal head from hard pour. No taste comes through too strong. Inoffensive on the palate! Overall, a very drinkable porter (I had a cheese toastie half way through this beer and they complimented each other very nicely).
