COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A stunning porter; ominously dark but not heavy, smooth and easy-drinking, with the lingering finish of roasted barley.

Cask. Coffee malt aroma. Dark body, tan creamy top. It looks like glass of expresso with crema on top. Taste is smooth if a little thin. It certainly doesn’t coat the palate like a stout. So I might question the brewer’s "lingering finish." But good for all that

I can take it or leave it with Porters, but this one drops like a bomb! Surprisingly easy to drink with flavours that excite the palate.

Black beer with a thin beige head. Light coffee aroma. Flavour is light, chocolatey coffee. It has an unfortunate slightly watery feel but it’s rather tasty aside from that.
