Pours dark with a good head that stays. It goes down very smoothly with a tangy taste mixing with the background barley notes.
The first few sips had an unpleasant metallic taste to them, which I often associate with bottom of the barrel pints, or bad plumbing. Unfortunately this was from a bottle so a little unusual. The taste faded away latter on in the pint but it spoiled the experience a little for me.
It was probably just the batch though, and it was otherwise pleasant. If not quite matching the hightes of some of thie stouts

Deep dark brown pour with lasting beige 1/2 finger. Amazing roasted aromas mix with candied fruit. One of the best smelling brews I’ve sniffed. Flavor is less complex though delicious - mostly malty with the softest dry bitter at the finish. Kinda perfect for the style.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Pitch black, with a large, frothy, tan head that refuses to fully dissipate. The nose is bittersweet chocolate, light coffee, toasted oak, with some caramel and anise. Nice, sweet and roasty flavor, with a nice touch of bitterness in the finish that keeps it from being cloying. Medium body, creamy, a little thin, and lightly acidic. This is a well balanced, flavorful and easy porter. Not overly complex, thick, or aggressive, but quietly tasty.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Large light brown foam which holds very long. Lovely aroma of roasted malt and English licorice. Tasting notes is English licorice, roasted malt and only a discreet hop aftertaste reflects quite how I think a porter should have tasted in London at the time. I think it is an experience that everyone should try.

Bottle from BevMo! in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is roasted malts, soy sauce, something tinny and smoky things. Taste is similar but thins out a bit too much. Like others have mentioned, this is lacking depth.

The Cannery Row Beer Club enjoyed this. We enjoyed this although thought there could be a little fuller in taste. Cheers.

Bottle from Edinburgh offy. Ok, and slightly better than their Chocolate Stout. Some depth at first, but gets thinner as you go on.
