Appeared as black as sin with tawny coming through in the base of the glass and a mocha head. Aromas of licorice, salt, shoe leather, black strap molasses. In the mouth there was prickly carbonation and then a flood of those classic Porter flavours: coffee, chocolate and molasses. It developed its flavours leaving me with rich coffee and dark cocoa chocolate. A good exemplar of style.
