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.

NosirIwont (2102) - Aalborg Vestby, DENMARK - MAY 10, 2015
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.

gegwilson (1850) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 3, 2015
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.

VBC 2015 Dark ruby, almost black, of color with a small beige head. An aroma of sweets, chocolate, prunes and weak roasted. A flavor of roasted malt, cold thin coffee and plastic.

MOLA_DK (340) - DENMARK - MAY 1, 2015
Bottle share at VBC. Very dark brown with a very small head. Slightly roasted aroma, a little sweetness. Medium body, quite watery. Low bitterness and roastiness. Quite boring beer.

Bottle. Very dark brown with an off white foam. Aromas are earthy coffee and blackberries with hedgerow. Dark chocolate with vegetable fat cola and coal. Flavours are dark berries with light roasted malts. Chocolate with oily notes and hints of cola. OK.

mR_fr0g (4954) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 10, 2015
Cask at the Euston tap.always good for a tick. Clear dark mahogany brown coloured pour with a creamy lasting light tan head. Attractive beer. Aroma milky coconut, toast, praline and cream. Flavour is composed of sweet coconut cream, toast, tangy dried fruits and a little woody note. Palate is full and milky, low carbonation. Smooth on the tongue. Lingering woodland berry and smooth dark roast. Good stuff.

On tap. Pours black with a nice head. Aroma and taste typical for porters, nothing special, although I drank it with a pleasure.
