Bottle from The Beerhive. Black body with a thick beige head. Excellent lacing. Aroma of ash, blackcurrant, liquorice, vanilla and wood. Flavour of earth, chocolate and berries. Lots of flavour for the ABV. Medium body with a smooth, creamy texture. Very soft fizz. A stunning Porter.

Bottle. Blackish beer with a strong light brown coloured head. The aroma is mildly roasted with some milky sweetness. The flavour is bitter and roasted with a good degree of maltiness and a fortified feel. Overall a nice roasted and bitter beer.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled on draught at the John Baird’s Yorkshire Beer Festival. A very dark brown with a closely-packed amber head. Not much aroma, but massive taste of vanilla and chocolate. Very nice if you like Cadbury’s Dairy Milk and crème brûlée. Quite malty and very creamy, the sweetness is offset by bitter hop tastes. Long, bitter finish, but with an aftertaste of chocolate. I think that most beer drinkers will find this beer too dominated by the vanilla and chocolate flavours. Quite pleasant though.
