Pours black with a very dark khaki head that hangs around for a bit leaving watery lacing. Aromas of roasted malts, vanilla. Tastes of bittersweet chocolate, chocolate malt leaving a somewhat bitter aftertaste. Decent, nothing memorable.

35 cl bottle @ home. Pours dark brown with an off-white head that leaves very little lacing. Aroma is roasted malt, milk chocolate, and cocoa. Flavour is much like the aroma – with an ever so slightly bitter finish. A little thin.

Perfectly decent porter. Seems the evening took a Colorado direction. Yep, enjoyed this and it was nice to be able to sit outside. I say sit, I mean stand. I asked a chap with his two friends if we could share his table, to rest a drink on while we chatted. He said no because he was in a big group. Said group must have thought he was as much of a prick as I did as they didn’t join him in the hour I stood next to the fucker.
