COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask: Regular. Also available brewery conditioned and cold filtered in 500ml bottles.
Hops: Challenger and Goldings.
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.

500 mL bottle at a tasting on January 13. The pour on this is a ruby-ish brown (not as dark as I’d like to see in a solid porter) with a lighter tan head. The head falls down to a filmy presence and leaves great lace on the glass. The aroma is pretty great in terms of a porter. There is a great roastyness to it, with just enough chocolaty malt, and a little coffee there in the back end.The flavor mimics the aroma with a little extra bitterness that’s not picked up in the nose. There is also a little detected caramel that’s well hidden. The mouth feel is a little light and thin, but the aftertaste is just great

Sdaniel90 (280) - Mexico City, MEXICO - JAN 19, 2014
Bottle, 500ml. Pours a deep rubybrownish colour with a fluffy, lacey head. Aroma features caramel, chocolate and roasted malt. Heavy and robust, with a strong toasted character and bitter finish to match. Great, warming beer.

AbbeyRoade (280) - Missouri, USA - JAN 17, 2014
Meh. Licorice, coffee, roasted malt aroma and matching flavors. Boozy flavors permeate and don’t bode well for this brew as it isn’t quite smooth enough for my liking.

Dark, ruby colour with medium and very stable head. Aroma of chocolate, caramel, roasty malts and hint of coffee. Taste is medium sweet and slightly bitter. Medium body. Soft carbonation. Tasty porter.

Bottle, pours quite an impressive head in my Duvel glass. Strong roasted coffee nose. I expected some sourness but the coffee aroma is overpowering everything.
