Cask. Really solid porter. Real porter, I can get behind it. Steady beige head. Sweet, oily, deeply to style. Classic. Drinks bigger than the 4.8% ABV would suggest.

Ocena przepisana z notatek / innego serwisu, w ramach uzupełniania profilu na RateBeer. Butelka. Kakao, lekki kwasek od palonych słodw, kawa. W smaku jest trochę słodyczy i palona kontra na średnim poziomie, raczej płsłodkie z nieco wytrawniejszym finiszem, niezłe.

ThirstyBird (2895) - Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 7, 2017
Bottle given to me by a pretty lady that isnt my wife. Pours a very dark black/brown with a rich tan head. The smell is dark roasted malt, chocolate, coffee, molasses. The taste is roast, dark chocolate, a hint of coffee ending dry and toasty. Medium- in body with average carbonation. Nice...

CraftBeerNick (2388) - London Town, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 28, 2017
Bottle at home, 28th January 17. Black, little carbonation. Aroma is cocoa, roasted malts. Taste is smooth, palate robust, for the extreme low ABV. Cocoa, bitter hops, coffee persist and linger to deliver a good porter.

A lovely drinkable porter. Plenty of dark chocolate and coffee in the aroma and taste without the associated harshness. Personally I felt it was too carbonated for the style, but still a very nice beer.
