You can blither on about robust strength and dark imported malts until your arse catches fire, this beer suits only one adequate deScription: a silky chocolate mousse in a beer.
Yep. I like it a lot.

Very good porter, from a recent USA trip. Robust yes, hops not overwhelming and adding flavour. Not too roasty. Very drinkable, and still strong carbonation.

Poured from bomber into tulip. Poured black with two finger tan head. Light lacing. Aroma is lightly malty. Taste is robust and is lightly sweet with a fairly smooth finish.
