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...

Interesting aroma of chocolate, coffee and caramel. The taste is however very thin. Bad for such an aroma.

StoutHead (715) - DENMARK - NOV 26, 2014
Draught at the Euston Tap. Pours black with a small tan head. Taste is of malt, chocolate, a little coffee and bread. Sweet and smooth with a slightly hoppy finish. Seems complex and is very drinkable but perhaps a bit too mild to be interresting. Well, to me anyway.

maledictum (648) - Pyongyang, NORTH KOREA - OCT 31, 2014
Dark chestnut colour with a red tinge. Lots of roast malt on the nose. Some dark chocolate. Lighter on the palate. Hints of coffee grounds with more burnt malt and a quite assertive bitterness. Medium weight mouthfeel.

ElDesmadre (1716) - Mikołów, POLAND - OCT 23, 2014
Bottle. Rather crisp for a porter, tastes like roasted cookies with blueberry and chocolate filling. Which means it’s rather pleasant.

330ml bottle from Beermoth. Pours black with tan head. Decent chocolatly porter, expected more of a malty texture but it’s a decent taste with a thin roasted character.
