[cask at the Craft Beer Co, London] Black with a cream-coloured head. Roasty porter aroma, deep coffee flavours. Very roasty on the finish. Doesn’t really taste 5%, other than a thickness on the mouthfeel. Sessionable. The roast comes out even more after a while, then the alcohol comes on more as well. Extremely drinkable and very nice [20092011]
