27th July 2013
Opaque dark brown - black beer with a good tan head. Palate is softish and a little dry. Fine minerally carbonation. Smooth dark malt, dry with touches of coffee and a whisper of dark chocolate. Light tang and light touch of dark fruits. Malty dry finish. If there is tea in here I can’t taste it. Nice porter, if a bit dry.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle @ Dean’s Birthday tasting, courtesy of jmgreenuk. Pours a pitch black colored beer with a small, beige head on top. Aroma of toffee, coffee and caramel. Flavor is quite sweet, like a coffee with milk and sugar. I’m not sure if it’s my imagination, but I’ve noticed some tea influences in here. Long sweet finish. Quite good porter!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at Deans Birthday Tasting, August 2013. Poured a deep mahogany colour with a frothy tan head. The aroma is peaty and malt. The flavour is weak bitter with some roasted malt, coffee and chocolate on the slightly watery palate. The aroma was better than the taste.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
As black as Batman with a brown, lasting, frothy, slides off the glass head. Deep smell of liquorish, with soft roast, and dark chocolate. Thin frothy body. Tastes of dark malt, chocolate, raisin, and light ash. Aftertaste is a bit off. It smells great but the taste is a bit disappointing by comparison. But it still very nice.
