On cask at the Chandlers Arms Shearsby. Traditional Porter nose of strong hops but not overpowering - hints of chocolate. Very dark beer with a strong off-white head with good retention. Stong chocolate malt taste to begin with which finishes with a good dose of hops. Pleasant on tthe pallate. A strong beer, ideal warmer for a cold evening.
