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...

Acidic aroma. Decent colour and head. Flavour is a total mess, acrid bitterness and over-the-top coffee notes. Far too much going on and not blended well at all. Unpleasant bitter finish. Classic example of trying too hard. very poor.
