Bottle from St Albans beer shop, St Albans, Herts. A dark brown/black coloured pour with a medium beige head on top. Roasty, malty, coffee aroma. Tastes roasty, malty, coffee, some chocolate, slight bitterness. This porter is all about the coffee, if it wasn’t so thin it would be world class, still a very good porter from Tempest.

From a 50 cl bottle in Edinburgh. 7.4% Imperial porter with cocoa and coffee.
A lot of coffee in the nose and faint dark chocolate.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
New branded 33 bottle at home - 7.4%. Lovely deep brown/black colour with an off white tanny head. Aroma is clean and grassy, with light coffee and milky and bitter choc. Medium body, light carbonation. Liquorice, treacle, grass, dark choc... but it thin and lifeless with no punch. OK.
