COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Filtered.
Ingredients: Pale malt; Roasted barley; Oats; Washington Galena, Worcester Fuggles and Kent Goldings hops.
A superb, rich, full-bodied beer derived from a 1970s homebrewing recipe. Wickedly smooth chocolate dominates the flavour, which is nicely balanced by the bitterness of the hops.

0,33l fles gedeeld met mark. Zwart als afgewerkte olie met een crme kraag. Geur en smaak vooral donkere mout met cacao en daarnaast het zijdezachte van de haver. Mooie balans met de bitter van de hop. Echt een heel degelijke porter.

kaserov (370) - Oviedo, SPAIN - OCT 12, 2016
Color negro oscuro, opaco, con capa de espuma marrn de un dedo de grosor (buena retencin, termina parecindose a la capa que deja un caf). Carbonatacin mnima. Aroma a malta tostada, caf, chocolate... Sabor similar, bastante completo y fcil de disfrutar. Nada arriesgado pero s un clsico, no lo voy a negar. Hay un deje amargo al final, imagino que a causa del lpulo. El sabor en boca entre trago y trago se mantiene hasta el infinito.

What a lovely porter! Pours pitch black with a large tan head. Aromas of cocoa, coffee and yeasty malts. Head and body of the beer come together for a lovely creamy feel in the mouth. Cocoa and a bit of coffee with every sip. A pleasant bitterness lingers after swallowing. One of the best beers I have had.
