Tap on nitro at town hall lanes. Chestnut brown with a tall khaki head. Big coffee, malty, biscuits and earthy hop. Great balance of light sweet and dry bitterness. Lighter body, but creamy from the nitro. Solid porter.

Black color with a thick head. Moderate coffee and roasted barley aroma. The coffee flavor seems like a very light blend, enough to notice it, but kind of buried by the chocolate and and roasted barley. Thinish body.

Cask sample. Near black in colour with soft carbonation. Aromas are of fruity British yeast, mild coffee, and chocolate syrup. Flavors are of malted milk, chocolate, light coffee, and more orchard fruit. Light bodied, even with the lower carbonation. Not bad, but I wish there was more coffee presence.

Nitro at GTMW, and one of my favorite beers from the weekend! Poured near black with the perfect nitro topper. The aroma picked up sweet, sweet coffee with lovely, complementary accents of chocolate and vanilla.. just what I needed. The flavor found sweet, roasty coffee throughout, with a little tangy green coffee around.. tasty coffee on the long finish. Buttery smooth through the palate with dense carbonation.. coating and delicious!

8/11/12. GTMW - nitro tap. Black pour with a fluffy tan head. Luxurious coffee nose along with chocolate and touches of sweet caramel. Lighter flavor with more coffee and some chocolate, cream, and caramel. People can argue for or against nitro, but this was definitely a tasty entry.
