This beer is divine, an English porter cannot get any better than this. it pours a luxuriously textured dark brown color with very little light coming in. the head is about two inches tall, and super creamy, light mocha in color. the nose is fantastically enticing, with a lot of milk chocolate notes from the malt, a bitterness from the roasted barley, and a hint of tartness to it as well from the hopping. the flavor is packed full with roasted malts, and is heavy on both the sweet and bitter chocolate components. this is even better than their acclaimed oatmeal stout, something about those stone fermenters really lets the yeast shine in all of their beers, and its an excellent complement to the dark bittersweet complexion of this porter. very little sweetness in the finish though, as the hops and burnt grains bitter it right up. full bodied and smooth as anything, I love the feel of this beer too. my only complaint is that its sold in four packs instead of six packs, I always seem to be wanting another one or two at the end of a session. wow this is just a splendid porter, an example to be followed on both sides of the atlantic! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
