Overall body is moderate to full, and finishes with dark chocolate bitterness. garthicus (2925) - Dublin, IRELAND - FEB 15, 2011
Thanks to HogTownHarry. Appearance: Gorgeous , pitch black, thick tan head. Aroma: Peat, malt, smoke, vanilla, almost a strawberry tone to it too. Flavour: Milky, quite a lot of turf/peat, toffee, sticky, a little boozy, beautiful chocolate milk with coffeeness to it. Delicious. rings (54) - Michigan, USA - FEB 14, 2011
Big and dark brown, with a milk chocolate head, this thing checks in a little heavier than most, at 6.5 percent ABV. There’s a full rounded mouthfeel and excellent head retention, indicating a nice protein body, with a generous and completely balanced hop finish.
Although not as well known as many of their offerings, this is an above average porter, an excellent winter warmer, and one well worth seeking out.

Bottle from Beermerchants.com. Poured like a glass of texas tea, with a diminishing beige head. Appealing snout with dark fruit, coffee, dark chocolate burnt toast and malts protruding. Thickish mouthfeel. Flavour was roasted malt laden with yet more dark choc and coffee and a hint of molasses. Some well placed hoppage gave good balance to proceedings. Extremely well proportioned. A quality porter to bring up my 1200th rate. mile (3932) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 13, 2011
