This fine beer is a blend of a mature old ale with a younger light beer - just as a true Porter should be. The marriage produces an extremely characterful brew which is dark in colour and complex in taste.

Bottle. Pours dark ruby with off white head. The head stays for a moment. Aroma is intense caramel and dark fruits. Taste is milky, caramel, roast, and dark fruits. Overall: nice, but maybe a little bit too light.

Renobob (637) - Besançon, FRANCE - MAR 25, 2014
Belle bouteille. Arômes de malts et presque café. Malheureusement peu de corps, un peu trop légère, pas assez d’alcool. Bière plutôt plate.

ARMed (603) - Garnet Valley, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 23, 2014
A beautiful smooth porter that has a very smooth velvety taste. The porter has an exceptional creamy finish and a perfect dark amber appearance. Perfect lacing and an outstanding overall appearance. Finish is slightly bitter which balances well with maltiness of the porter.

Brewdork (228) - Sanford, Florida, USA - MAR 13, 2014
500 ml bottle poured into English pint. Deep cola color with a dense khaki head that settles into a silky film leaving slight lacing. Light, slightly tangy roasty coffee aroma. Well-rounded toffee flavor with slight licorice notes and a nice bitterness in the finish. Soft mouthfeel. Overall better than I was expecting and a nice example of an English porter.
