Bottle. Nice black-amber pour with a foamy white head. Chocolate malts, touch of mocha. Quite a dry and quick finish, which makes it fairly drinkable for a darker beer. Very solid.

September 10, 2014 - from a 500ml bottle - thanks, Ang! Pretty much black pour, thick-looking frothy beige head. A simple and clean nutty/light coffee porter, reasonably dry, mild alcohol, enough bitterness to balance - average body, finishes fairly quick, a dry roast aftertaste - sort of coffee beans and dark chocolate - solid.

Bottle from deeside drinks emporium. Pours a black with a light brown head which hangs about. Lovely chocolatey aromas with coffee and caramel notes. The taste is very similar with stronger coffee flavours to chocolate which leaves a fine roasted malt linger. Very nice porter.
