Bottled 500ml ABM. Deep ruby color, decent beige head, some lace. Aroma has coffee, rye bread, cough syrup. Medium-bodied. Very bready, ryeish, dark malty porter. Light menthol hops. A bit weird.

Cast at the Florence, Herne Hill. Pours a coca cola colour with a thin head. OK, but has an odd fireworky thing in the flavour - tastes like you'd expect the workings of a Xmas cracker to taste if you were so inclined.

(Bottle): Pours dark brown, off white head. Roasted malt aroma, some dark fruits, liquorice, slight coffee beans. A balance of roasted malt and dark fruits in the flavour with notes of liquorice and some chocolate on the finish. Very smooth and drinkable. Very nice!

Really nice porter, i thought this would be more highly rated. It tastes so much better not too cold. Perfectly poised between the dry and the sweet, with enough of both to keep you interested. Lovely.
