Bottle. Dark brown with almost no head. Nice, sweet caramel, a little bit of coffee, but you can also clearly smell alcohol. Quite bitter, but in a bad way. Again caramel in taste, alcohol and something chemical - nail polish?? Very average porter, definitely too strong alcohol aroma and terrible chemical taste.

Bottled, 330ml at The Bell, Nottingham. Dark chestnut with a cream head. Full, rich maltiness, dark and roasty, really quite smooth, fruity port wine like and a light dose of alcohol. Really quite enjoyed this on the day.

Bottle. Thanks bigbro. Pours deep chestnut with a small, creamy, beige head. Aroma has toasted caramel, grass, light liquorice. Medium carbonation, fine dry and fairly light mouthfeel. Flavour has mild smoke, roasted and toasted caramel. Mild malty bitterness with slight astringency. Boring.

Grzesiek79 (3214) - Radom, POLAND - APR 27, 2014
Dobre piw ciemne o porterowej teksturze. Z niewielka piana brazowym kolorem i bordowym odcieniem. Zapach ziaren kakaowca, a w smaku troche czekolady, prazonych orzeszkow i tostowe pieczywo, podlane to wszystko slodkim karmelem. Tresciwe ale nie ciezkie. Dobry porter latwy w wypiciu
