Pretty roasted malty full bodied Porter. Overall nice but a bit bitter finish for a porter. Hoppy dry finish. Not bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft and Cask (with cocoa nibs) at the brewery. Brown color with a tan head on draft and no head on cask. Strong coffee aroma on both, but the cocoa mellows the coffee for sure on the cask. Both are coffee and roast forward. Cask is a bit sweeter with less of a bitterness overall. Very smooth in both presentations. Enjoyed both. Rating is a compilation.

Theydon_Bois (16262) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 3, 2015
Keg at the brewpub, 19/02/15. Light black with a moderate tan covering that dissipates to a swirl and edgeing. Nose is rich roast, raisens, toffee, dark malt, chocolate. Taste comprises dark fruit rinds, toffee, cocoa powder, moalsses. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Solid enough porter - ticks all the style boxes well!

4oz on tap at the brewpub. Brown color. Minimal head. Good chocolate flavor to this, most flavorful of any of the beers Iíve tried so far here. A bit one dimensional though. Just.. chocolate. Not too rich, pretty mild though. Lighter carbonation. Kind of slick. Decent porter.
