A delightfully rich & full beer that exudes dark chocolate & heady malt. Leaves a nice earthy taste with hints of Xmas fruit mince.

Opaque black beer, small tan head. Crisp palate. Mildly dark malt with molasses. Pretty minerally. Trace of lactose. Semi dry finish. Thatís all! Itís okay but a bit too much molasses.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours deep cola brown with ruby highlights and decent light tan head. Aromas of cream, chocolate, caramel and light grassy, tropical hops. Light medium body, crisp carbonation, nice coffee bean acrid bite from the kilned malts - creamy chewy mouthfeel initially making way for a light drinking porter.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml dark green bottle into pilsner glass. Pours near jet black with a faint red hue and a decent tan head that laces well. Brown sugar dominates the nose with coffee and faint nutty notes. Similar taste to the nose with a moderate dry hop bitter finish. Smooth mouthfeel with medium body. Nice porter - not too sweet and cloying.
