Poured a deep black color with aromas of roast, chocolate, and light wood. Flavors are chocolate and oak, with some nice earthiness and some rich dark malt, another solid Porter from ccb.

Theydon_Bois (21794) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - NOV 1, 2015
Keg at Cafe Bayou, Unwinsville, RBWG ’15 day 2 - 20/02/15. Black with a dirty tan head. Nose is roast malt, spice, chocolate, biscuit, toasted brown sugar. Taste comprises chocolate, caramel wafer, trace of orange, woody tones, vanilla, molasses, light charr. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Decent enough but doesn’t pull out of 2nd gear, masks the ABV well making for an easy drinker.

Craft Clapham. Keg. Route 66 event with most of the London crew. Opaque dark brown - black beer, good tan head. Palate is soft and airy. Decent fine carbonation. Smooth dark malts. Trace of wood. Little coffee that turns slightly tangy. Soft finish provides a light savoury note. Not bad.

harrisoni (19695) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 10, 2015
On tap at Craft Covent Garden, black beer lasting tan head. Dark chocolate aroma Deep intense you can smell the abv. A little woody maybe is it aged in wood? Good chocolate. Cigar box. Tobacco. It’s an intense dark malt beer. I rather liked it. It doesn’t take any prisoners and it delivers the alcohol pretty well some heat on the finish. It’s maybe a little too woody for me. Good though.
