Cask at the Euston tap.always good for a tick. Clear dark mahogany brown coloured pour with a creamy lasting light tan head. Attractive beer. Aroma milky coconut, toast, praline and cream. Flavour is composed of sweet coconut cream, toast, tangy dried fruits and a little woody note. Palate is full and milky, low carbonation. Smooth on the tongue. Lingering woodland berry and smooth dark roast. Good stuff.

Pours a rich black with a healthy tan head. Lots of chocolate, caramel, biscuit, and general malt in the aroma. Flavor is a little like melted chocolate ice cream or chocolate mousse. Very creamy and chocolaty with vanilla and a touch of caramel. Full body and a nicely smooth finish.

Bad luck that I had it side by side with the gorgeous Mokko, by the same brewery. Ruby black, with hardly any aroma, but a sour whiff of yogurt. Flavours are multi-layered, with chocolates, malts, coffee, liquorice, and the body is jsut on the thinner side. Still a lovely porter, only dwarfed by its sweet stout sister.

Draught at the Euston Tap. Pours black with a small tan head. Taste is of malt, chocolate, a little coffee and bread. Sweet and smooth with a slightly hoppy finish. Seems complex and is very drinkable but perhaps a bit too mild to be interresting. Well, to me anyway.
