Small dark orange-tan head over virtually black beer. Smoked, smoked wood, salty, dark malts, even smoked mackerel. Smoked in the flavour as well, woody, bitter chocolate, burning logs. Very well-bodied, viscous, warming & rewarding. I’m impressed! This ranks easily amongst the best porters I’ve ever tasted.

Pours a beautiful black beer with a good brown head. Smells coffee, chocolate and a bit milkey and burn. I love the taste. Absolutely great. Heavy coffee. Burned. Thick body with a sticky texture. Good fitting carbo. Great beer!

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle 33cl. Deep dark black with a red glow. Tiny light brown head, again with a red glow. Head fades quickly. Strong aroma of coffee, dark chocolate, sugar. The taste starts with an intense flavour of dark chocolate and sugar, but develops quickly into a deep bitterness and leaves you with a warm glow of alcohol. Good!
