Cask, Regular;
A porter designed to be smooth and irresistible, Black is back, with a controlled roast character, hint of coffee with chocolate on the side followed by a depth charge of palate cleansing late American hops.

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.
