Bottle bought at some farmers market in Wales, drank at home. Pretty much black with a medium lasting frothy tan head. Aroma of burnt chocolate in a saucepan, roasted malts. Flavour is milk chocolate, very drinkable, slightly fizzy mouthfeel, very tasty. Good work fellas.

Cask conditioned handpump Market Porter London 03/03/14. A dark brown to chestnut coloured beer with a white head. A simplistic malty fruity bitter. Toasty notes. Sweet lactose joins in with nits. A bit of fireside. Itís different and OK.

Bottle from Porters Deli in Llangollen. Despite several days to settle and a very careful pour, this still emerged as a disturbingly murky, cloudy brown colour, although at least it had a nice beige head and a light fizz. Although the body is a little thin, the chocolate, plum and raisin flavour is decent. Thereís a hint of roastiness in the mildly bitter finish. Overall itís OK.

Bottled, 500ml from James A Bailey Food Emporium, Llangollen, Wales. Cloudy dark brown with cream head. Sweet malts to the fore with a milky chocolate note, some sweetish caramel and a little fruitiness. Itís ok.

Delivers pure indulgence. Chocolate undertones coming after the powerful aroma, silky on the palette and deep aftertaste leaving a long, refreshing finish. Not one for the faint-hearted, more beef than a Sunday roast!

Recommended as "Lovely", Iím not sure itís brilliant. This was bottled. Colour of stout. Thinnish cream coloured head., good mouthfeel. Flavour slightly odd ... no chocolate more like burnt toffee .... slightly perfumed. Finishes with a nice bitter zing.

ladnewton (1474) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 6, 2012
Live rating: Cask at the Kingston Arms, Cambridge on 6th September 2012. Deep brown with thin layer of off-white foam. Sweetish pungent aroma. This belies a fruity in-mouth flavour with berries to the fore, before a late hoppy trend which develops into a fairly bitter, grassy finish. Chocolate backdrop to it all. Slightly flat-feeling in the mouth, touch of oiliness. Interesting beer.

A Mes rate. Bottle thanks to Weaselkenievil.
Almost black with a thin but lasting tan head. Good thick black stuff with some good treacle character. So this is what? A bitter made with a load of chocolate malt? Works for me. Great Cadburys drinking chocolate hints and a good dollop of bitterness in the finish. Straight forward but extremely enjoyable. Liked every second of it.
