"Elemental Dark" Porter bottle from Coppers, Newcastle. A black beer that pours with a thin tan head. It has a rich dark chocolate flavour, nutty and liquorice notes with milk chocolate, currants and oak on the finish. Excellent!

Had this on cask upon my first visit to The Bow Bar in Edinburgh. A nice but not too strong porter with hints of toffee and coffee.

Cask at the Bow Bar. Rich supple and fine structure of silky black kicks off this deliciously fine porter. Much depth and complexity abounds.Very fine.

On cask at York Tap. Got the look of a stout with a tan head. Quite complex but a little too bit at the end. Enjoyable,

Craft - Clerkenwell. Opaque dark brown beer, little pale tan head. Smooth palate with mild fine carbonation. Smooth and mellow dark malt. Mild minerals. A nice touch of generic fruit adds complexity and rounds things off nicely. Smooth finish. Decent.
