Smooth and balanced. Somewhat malty but no other dominating characteristics. Easy drinking, good-to-style porter.

A nice beer all around. Nice dark rich pour with a full light khaki head. Nose is roasted malts and some dark fruits. A little plums and maybe raspberry. Flavor has a little sweetness added to the roast. Some lighter sweetness, like candy sugar and molasses. Smooth finish with a nice medium body. I dig it.

4.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 20/20
Pours deep, rich black, nice toasty flavor. Great representation of the style. Most craft brewers seem fixated on adding a twist to classic styles to make them stand out, often the embellishment is more of a distraction than anything else. This is just a good, classic porter.

Black pour from 12oz bottle to Maudite glass at home. Roasty, coffee, and malty aroma. Has a sweet and milky taste. Mild hints of cocoa and coffee, slight fruit ending. Toasty and pretty tasty too.

Draught at Craft Beer Co, Clerkenwell on 19 Jun 2012. Poured a really deep ruby, near black, with a dense beige head. Aroma was fairly light, considering, with some dark malt, roasted nuts and mild smoke. Roasted malt flavours, with some coffee and brown sugar. Finish was espresso, dark chocolate and ash.
