Big malt aromas with chocolate notes and some yeast smells.Pours a dark mahogany with a tight tan head, lots of lacing. Big round tastes of pumpernickel and malt, very light sweetness, complex and balanced. Has an astringent fizzy almost grapefruit finish. Excellent porter. Sam’s da man...

Quite fine and tasty porter.
Dark brownish color with a fine beige head. Ok lancing down the sides off the glass. Fine intensity in the aroma. Medium + body and a fine carbonation. Chocolate, cold coffee, roasted and pleasant fruity.
