jmgreenuk (7844) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - SEP 28, 2012
Draft at Borefts beer festival. Crude oil like pour with a thin brown head. This beer is everything you expect from a quality porter and then some more. It has that lovely roasted malt aroma with loads of chocolate and liqourice in the flavour coupled with oak and a hint of cognac, which thankfully wasn’t dominant. A gorgeous, well rounded and very drinkable beer.

Taste is light to medium sweet and light to medium bitter with notes of chocolate, licorice, biscuit and cognac. Medium to full bodied with low to medium carbonation and very velvety liquid.

brokensail (16057) - Dublin, California, USA - SEP 24, 2012
The beer is black with a small tan head. A touch of booze up front on the aroma followed by heavy roasted malt, a touch of smoke, and dark chocolate. Moderate cognac along with vanilla sweetness and a hint of caramel. The flavor is a touch bitter at first with heavy dark chocolate, roasted malt, and cocoa powder. Sweet cognac, oak, and vanilla balance this out, as does some caramel and molasses.
