Purchased at Tesco store in London, UK. Also tasted at the Meantime brewery pub, as well as buying a bottle from LCBO ( I think it was just a seasonal special ) in Canada. Good porter, bit pricey at the brewery but nice part of town to visit.

Nice, easy drinking porter, rich, smoky, sweet but nothing particularly jumps out. Still, quite nice.

Maybe I had this sitting too long. A couple of months. Pours slick black with a velvet beige head. Aroma is cold cuts and smoked malts. Taste is again slight smoked meats and malts with coffee mixed in. Not terribly pleasant.
