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...

mjs (5112) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 25, 2013
(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.

poplarbrew (1) - Manchester, Cheshire, ENGLAND - JUN 2, 2013 does not count
Bottle / Beermoth. Lingering burnt finish. Malty, acidic but lacks balance, depth and sweet notes. Not an endearing or particularly enjoyable porter.

33 cl bottle @ lusikka, BBE 30.09.2013
Somewhat light and slightly sour aroma with malty notes, some cocoa and roastiness. Flavour is tart and sourish with woody notes, some roastiness and lactic acid. Contaminated but not a total disaster though.

tiong (4564) - Espoo, FINLAND - JUN 1, 2013
330ml bottle from Ales by Mail

Pours dark brown, almost black with a smooth white head. Aroma of roasted malts, vegetables, hints of cold coffee. Taste is roasty with notes of vegetables, hints of tart berries, coffee and ash. Finish is roasty and sweetish with hints of licorice and coffee. Okay, a bit unbalanced porter.
