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.

bierkoning (10563) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - APR 5, 2006
Coffee, licorice and brown sugar in both aroma and flavor. Sweetish, medium bodied. Bitter walnut aftertaste. Tasty, but the licorice character is somewhat exaggerated. Nevertheless a fine beer.

Ratman197 (10224) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JUN 7, 2006
500 ml flask shaped bottle poured a clear dark reddish brown with a dissapating amber head. Aromas of bitter chocolate, mocha and some roastiness. Palate was light bodied and crisp. Flavors of bitter chocolate, roasted malt and some charcoal with a smooth slightly bitter finish.

Maria (10176) - Thisted, DENMARK - APR 6, 2007
Brown with a red hue and an OK head. The aroma has nice notes of chocolate. the flavour has notes of coffee, roasted malt, chocolate and a bit of licorice. I think its OK, but I would like it to have more complexity, and I prefer the Cream Stout.

BeerandBlues2 (10145) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - FEB 5, 2005
Comes in a flask bottle which is quite unique. Pours a wonderfully clear and clean mahoganey with virtually no head, but what is there is tan and lasts only seconds. The aroma is a sweet dark chocolate that makes your mouth think it is about to get into some fine dark and smooth piece of chocolate. Coffee notes follow and then a bit of hop tickles your nose. Initial flavor is a silky smooth roasted chocolate malt flavor that finishes mildly hoppy. A full-bodied palate and silky mouthfeel.
