A dark red almost black beer with a fine light brown head. The aroma is fruity an slightly smokey. And the flavor is smokey but very mellow - nice but very mainstream for a porter. joergen (29804) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 8, 2005

Warning! Early amateur rating! Rich dark porter. Bitter at first but becomes savoury. Very drinkable.
UPDATED: MAY 15, 2012 Bottle at home... Nice Deep red ... big foam head ... Deep roast malt nose ... Nice good roast base ... some chocolate ... quite dry and and bitter ...Decent enough ... but not as nice as the cask... It puzzles me that the bottle scores higher than the cask.

Rich, roasty and very flavourful. Still velvetty soft, and very drinkable.
Complex and well balanced.
