Cask at CASK in Pimlico. Bit too watery of palate, not much chocolate at all although a pleasant coffee taste. Bit too thin all round though, disappointing.

teorn88 (3555) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 23, 2014
Bottle from the brewery webshop. It pours a dark brown color with a medium tan head. Aroma is roasted malts, coffee, licorice and dark chocolate, overlayed by pine cones and wild berries. Taste is medium bitter roasty and medium tart fruity. Notes of black berries and red currants, pine cones, coffee, dark chocolate and roasted wood. Medium body with good carbonation. Overall, good porter

Marstonlad (544) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 4, 2014
On tap at the Marble Arch, Manchester. A black color and a medium-sized dense head. The aroma features roasty chocolaty notes, as expected; malty notes dominate. Taste is sweetish with soft, round maltiness emphasizing chocolate. The palate is barely medium-bodied but velvety in texture with a flat to average carbonation. Decent, if a bit basic chocolate stout.

Dark brown/red with a decent head. Malty and chocolate aroma. Flavour is nicely balanced between milk chocolate and roast. A solid beer.
