A Rich Dark Porter brewed with 10 different malts giving a sweet roast richness that is balanced with just enough hop character. This ale has a surprising drinkability for it’s colour and abv. Don’t let the sumptuous roast malt fool you, this porter is seriously potent & has the potential to take you to another place...

A bit muted on the nose but with chocolate, coffee, toast coming through nicely on the palate. Mouthfeel is a bit light and finish is nice and dry but a bit short.

Jet black. Strong burnt malts and charcoal in the aroma. Flavour has great toasty, burnt bitter malts and a hint of coffee in the aftertaste.

Niall73 (1943) - Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 17, 2013
Cask at CBC Brixton. Pours a dark coca-cola colour with a red tinge and an off white head. Not much in the way of an aroma at all. Slight breadlines perhaps. Medium body, mild carbonation. Red fruits, a little milk choc and a mild citrus bitter finish. OK. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
