4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Black with minimal brown head which soon disappears altogether. Aromas of sweet chocolate, vanilla pod, coffee. Heavenly in the mouth, quite sweet but well balanced by the dark coffee. Vanilla is present but more as a general sweetener. Coffee is very strong, and the beer is far less bitter than I expected. More of a coffee bitterness than a hoppy one. Also relatively light mouth feel for a porter, with mild carbonation. Bittersweet mocha aftertaste. Delicious!

(tap takeaway) - Lovely aromas of coffee and vanilla, Pours really well and sits nicely in the glass with a head that looked milkshake thick. Taste takes the aroma lead, and there is an under carry of bitterness. I Thought initially that this has a full mouthfeel but then I thought it didn’t and lacked body. But I like it, and would like it more if it dialled up the coffee or the vanilla a notch.

Smells like coffee and vanilla, not surprising but very nice. Tastes really good too. At first it’s delicious sweet vanilla then it throws a cup of coffee at you then it tops it all off with some really dark bitter chocolate. Lovely balance, not too sweet or creamy like some others of this type.
