Dark brown pour whispy soapy tan head. Coccoa powder and a hint of grassy hops. Full well coated palate. Chocolate a hint of lactose lightly bitter grassy finish. Pretty good stuff a little sweeter than needed.

I enjoy this beer on draft over bottle. This brew pours a deep raisin red color with an off-white tan lasting head. With hints of bittersweet chocolate, coffee, and a slight tart cherry nose, this 8% imperial porter is a knockout.

On tap at BrewDog Manchester. Dark brown verging on black with ruby hints. Head is scant and fleeting. Smells dark and malty. Big coffee notes upon first sip, then chocolate, some cherry and a liquorice aftertaste. Lots of very distinctive tastes that come together well. Lovely.

65 cl bottle from Systembolaget. Raisin and and honey and a bit of soy in the aroma the taste is is a nice combo of chocolate and raisins with a hint of honey. Nice thickness but a bit too high carbonation for a porter.
Conclusion: Nice taste but too carbonated

Bottle at Brewdog Edinburgh. Pours jet black with a thin tan head, which doesn’t last. Lots going on in the aromas - cherry, chocolate, roasted malt, dark muscavado sugar. Sadly the flavour doesn’t quite deliver. Some hop bitterness, creamy mouthfeel, little bit thin. Good, but not £12 good.
