COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular.
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...

Cask at Port Street, Manchester. I can’t really read my notes from this, but I recall it was dark, roasty, a little sweet and very nice.

(Keg at Black Door, 20130625) The beer poured black. Its head was medium sized and almost white. Aroma had roasted malts, burnt malts, coffee and creaminess. Palate was full bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were roasted malts, chocolate, burnt malts, coffee, sweetness, liquorice and bitterness. Aftertaste was roasty and bitter. A tasty and bit too burnt porter.

Aroma is fantastic - butterscotch caramel, richness. The taste is a bit bland; dark malts. Overall, a good porter but far from mind blowing.
