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.

OlJuntan64 (1265) - Perth, - APR 1, 2006
Murky canal brown with a small short lasting beige head, Delicious roasted malt coffee, plum pudding hint of boot polish and alcohol aroma. Thin slightly chewy low carb dry mouth feel. Flavour is classic porter, big roasted dry malt, low sweetness and medium bitterness. Reminds me of a light espresso. Finish is crisp and drying. Nice

Beerathon (1338) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 30, 2015
Very interesting porter. Has a boozy taste to it that apparently it shouldn’t (only 5.1%). Some nutty and roasted malts flavors, along with a bit of cola. Thin, but not in a bad way. Slightly bitter. Some sugars in the nose that don’t necessarily show up in taste. Different than most porters, and for that reason I’m giving it extra credit.

DavoleBomb (1487) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 17, 2015
Poured into a perfect pint. 3.5 A: Clear dark amber brown color. Just over one finger of frothy/creamy beige head. Retention is a touch below average, but a decent sized ring of lacing is left. 4.0 S: Roasted barley with toastiness and a heavy graininess. Under that there’s a doughy neutral sweetness. Dry with chocolate and caramel. Mineral with hints of coffee. 4.25 T: Taste is like the nose, but a little less dry, which makes for good balance overall. Roasty toasty malts, big graininess and doughiness. Chocolate, caramel, neutral malt chewiness. Mineral, coffee, and biscuit. 4.25 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Chewy without being sweet. Pleasantly creamy. 4.0 D: Another winner from this brewery. A very good option if you are in the mood for something English. DavoleBomb, May 29, 2013

hohops (399) - Kent, ENGLAND - DEC 30, 2014
Bottle. Appearance is dark ruby, with a ridiculous 5+ finger foamy light-brown head, which very slowly reduces to three fingers. Aroma- chocolate, burnt malt, honey, toast, cocoa, caramel, dark fruit undertones. Taste- initial hit of chocolate and coffee bitterness, a definite hop presence, dark malt, burnt toast, chocolate-covered caramel, quite a bit of carbonation cutting through a foamy mouthfeel, a clinging slightly bitter, burnt finish. Very good.

ramstein2611 (27) - Florida, USA - DEC 28, 2014
Pours a nice deep brown with a tan head that disappears quickly. Aroma is a nice sweet roasted malt. Taste is a nice balance between hop and malt with a slight smokey clean finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Hrc_Cro (157) - Zagreb, CROATIA - DEC 26, 2014
0.5l bottle. Black color with small brown head. Aroma of coffee and chocolate. Taste is little sweet and typical porter bitter. It is too plain and average.

Bottle; pours dark brown with a thin tan head; aroma of chocolate, dark fruits, and malt; taste is light bittersweet with chocolate, dark fruits, and hints of caramel and coffee; dry finish; not overly complex but smooth and easy to drink

stravale (2315) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - NOV 12, 2014
Bottle from Booths, MediaCityUK [101114]
Very dark caramel brown, clear, frothy white head
Aroma of spicy English hops, some skunk, mellow roast, some dark stone fruits
Taste of caramel, roasted malts, earthy hops, bit spicy, some bitter coffee, lots of twiggy hops, getting a rusty yeast...hmm not liking the flavour of this much
Palate - Soft carb, medium body. Finish quite dry, lingering spicy earthy hops, bitter roast
Overall - Sort of an old ale / porter cross. OK - just not me this beer
