Kind of a one note beer, mostly espresso like burnt flavor. Not as sweet as I would have expected. Bitter burnt flavors with very little hop. Kind of thin mouth feel. Enjoyable but not anything memorable.

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.

Very faint aroma of malt. Light chocolate and malt flavors. Somewhat watery. Rather weak. Drinkable, but nothing memorable.

Poured into pint from bottle a very dark brown with off white head. Roasted malts, coffee and somewhat earthy on the nose. The taste is chocolate, coffee, a hint of vanalia and licorice with some alcohol noted. The finish is a bit smokey and it bitters. Enjoyable but not blown away.

From a bottle. Pours dark brown with a thick, bubbly tan head and lots of lacing. Tastes like coffee, roasted malt, some dark chocolate, and a bit of alcohol and vanilla. Light/medium body and low carbonation. Smells like roasted malt, dark chocolate, and some coffer and alcohol.
