4.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
This is my favourite beer style ,what a great 4 pack from this brewery. The bottle poured an inky black with a fluffy tan head, very tight bubbles. The scent of this beer was coffeeish and chocolaty with hints of ripe plums. The creamy rich head was followed by an intense flavour dominated by roasted notes and sweet caramel, finishing with a lovely chocolate sensation. The lingering flavour was still around well after the bottle was gone. This beer is truely a stand out in their range and accordingly this is the brewers favourite style.

Pours pitch black with a light brown head. The aroma includes rich roasted malt, coffee, espresso, and dark chocolate. Tasting notes include roasted grain, burnt coffee, dark chocolate, and a pleasant bitter finish. The body is full, and the palate is thick with very soft carbonation. This is a wonderful porter! To many attempts at the style have a thin watery body, but this is a wonderfully full and rich porter!
