Pours a very dark brown with a cocoa head. Aroma is coffee but mainly roasted malt. Some nice coffee flavours mixed in with the roasted malt. Thin and light like a porter should be. Theydon_Bois (19703) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - APR 26, 2017

Nose is coffee grinds, raisins, dark fruit esters, light roast, toffee.
Taste comprises coffee grinds, chocolate, light charr, roast malts, brown bread, black peppery spice.
