Almost opaque dark brown beer, decent pale tan head. Palate is airy, semi dry and has modest fine carbonation. Mellow dark malts, mild dark chocolate and coffee. A fruity tang on the back end. Slight earthy feel overall. Fairly dry finish. Okay - if a bit dry.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Keg at The Rake. It pours darkest brown, near black with no head. The aroma is soft, bitter - sweet, chocolate, slight jamminess, black forest gateaux and a touch of umami. The taste is bitter, roasted malts, charred wood, peppery spice, some berries, light acidity, light ash and earth with a lingering dry, roasted finish. Some nice aspects to it (particularly the aroma) but it is a touch flabby and flat. Alright.

On tap @ Hopfanatic Pub. Black color with short lasting brown head. Roasted malts, coffee and toffee aroma. Tastes of malts, coffee and the finishing somehow reminds me of the scent of milk. Altogether nice bitterness. I dont feel the advertised fruites though. Nevertheless, very decent beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours pitch black with medium head. Aroma: roastiness, dark fruit and hopps. Taste: pleasant roastiness, with a background of dark fruits and a nice palate. Solid porter profile in an interesting combination with dark fruit, which thankfully do not dominate the picture. Nice one.
