Pours dark ruby brown with shortlived tan head. Aromas of chocolate and roasted malts, treacle. Thick and oily in the mouth, sweet flavours of treacle, coffee, roasted malts. Not much bitterness. Nice alcohol warmth considering the ABV. Nice Porter, but maybe a bit on the cloying side for me.

Three words: not black enough! I understand its maybe designed to be a smooth-drinking porter, but I just expect all stouts & porters to be about as dark as a beer can get, visibly speaking. Flavors are nice, smells good as well, with roasty notes, yet little or no smoky characteristics sometimes found in this variety.

Keg @ Victorian Craft Beer Cafe, Halifax. Dark amber-brown with a very thin head. Has a light but decent roasted malt aroma and taste with a hint of chocolate in the latter aspect. Very easy drinking for its strength and there’s a fair dark malt sweetness evident throughout its character.
