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.

Voivod (304) - Como, - AUG 3, 2003
Great bottle!! Black colour, few head. Roasty aroma, with tracs of liquorice and caramel. The flavour is complex, with notes of roasted and smoked malts, plums, raisins, chocolate and liquorice. Very bitter aftertaste. Nice.

willisread (407) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAR 8, 2015
Old rating. Bottle from Old Town. Aromas of cacao, dark fruit and roasted malts. Taste is more of the same with a bitter roasted coffee-like finish. Oily mouthfeel. Not bad but not as good as the cream stout.

MrBlueSky93 (278) - Sutton Coldfield, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 7, 2015
Bottle from Beers of Europe. Dark Brown in colour, 2 finger off white head. Aroma of malts, dark fruits, berries, coffee, dark chocolate. Much the same on the taste, perhaps with a touch of lemon. Complex!

gregwilsonstl (1228) - Missouri, USA - FEB 7, 2015
Brown. Somewhat sweet at first, then becomes quite dry. Tastes a bit aged (maybe due to green bottle?). Fairly light body. The hops stand out more than the body. Good but not great.

dnicolaescu (1054) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - FEB 4, 2015
BOTTLE 50 CL. Brown malt and bread, a touch of caramel in the aroma, dark bread crust, and a drop of hops too. Not much roasted notes, like chocolate or coffee. It is half-way between a mild and a modern porter. The flavour is brown malts, very restrained caramel sweetness, and a solid spicy bitter finish. Smooth mouth-feel, despite the lack of carbonation. it does not feel flat or watery. Nothing extreme here, just a smooth balanced beer. Surprisingly good.

Beerathon (1422) - 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.
