Bottle. Itís a clear, very dark brown beer, a beige finger-thick head sits on top. The aroma is really delicious, with cocoa, some licorice, notes of alcohol, and roasted malts. Full-bodied and warming, with flavors of roasted malts, dried fruits, cocoa and some licorice. Roasted, warming finish. A really pleasant and tasteful beer, the aroma even slightly more lovely. 091127

500ml bottle from Sainsburys. Black beer, dark brown edges with thick beige head. Actually quite a good baltic porter style beer. Lots of milk chocolate. Some decent maltiness. Shame its filtered and pasteurised otherwise this could be a fantastic beer. Lots of plum fruit. Really very good.

Very dark brown. Chocolatey, citric aroma. Sweet and sour flavour is fruity, chocolatey, and complex. Sorry if I didnít pick up the moist Cavendish tobacco...my bad...but itís a nice rendition of old school porter, a style I almost always enjoy.
