Dark brown with a great, thick khaki head and nice lacing. Aroma of chocolate, toffee, and some dark fruit. Taste is much the same as aroma, and ends with some hop bitterness. Fairly light bodied and well carbonated. Decent porter.

Keg - dark black with a thin light brown head. Aroma of coffee and cocoa. Taste of coffee, roast malts and hints of smoke. Medium body, low carbonation. Remarkably boring for something advertised as a ’ten malt porter’.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. 5.0%. Best before 31.05.15. 10 cl. sample. Pours a dark brown, with a small, disappearing off-white head. Roasted aroma with a coffee note and a hint of chocolate. Roasted, sweet liquorice flavour. Somewhat watery, and with a weird note which tastes like polymer clay smells. Same finish, dry, with a lingering cigarette smoke note. Meh. 01.05.15.

Bottle from Heaton Hops. Pours almost black with a cream head. Nice cocoa aroma. The taste is slightly metallic with light spice and burnt toast, plus a little chocolate. Pleasant and drinkable, but not a great porter.
