Black beer with a thin brown head. Rich, bitter chocolate aroma. Flavour is similar though with a touch more sweetness to it. Rich, malty chocolate with a touch of sugary sweetness underneath. It feels relatively light but there’s a good bitter aftertaste to it. At this percentage it’s very drinkable.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Keg at BrewDog Edinburgh. Very dark brown, a small amount of visible carbonation creating a little beige/tan head. Smell is not so much chocolate as a decadent hot fudge sundae, with some wood chips and freshly milled paper. Rounded sweet taste. Lovely. However the body is weak and the finish is exceptionally short. Diddums. Otherwise would have scored reasonably higher.

Cask at Congress, Longton. Pours black brown with tan head. Quite thin on the palate, nice balance of chocolate on this easy drinking porter. Good.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from deeside drinks emporium, pours a thick black with a frothy brown head which lasts. Aromas of chocolate, creamy coffee, with a slight wood smoke. Flavours are very similar with a strong, charred smokey flavour which is surprisingly enjoyable.

Keg at Glasgow Real Ale Festival. Aroma is strong coffee, well matched by the taste. Slightly watery, and taste quickly fades, which is disappointing
