Had it from a bottle. Nice dark color. It is not as bitter as I thought it would be, very easy drinkability.

Now labelled a ’Porter’. Really?
’No other type of beer arouses so many questions as to its origin. What the hell is it? Is it British or Irish? How does it vary from the Stout style? What does the name mean?
Porter is said to have been popular with transportation workers of Central London, hence the name. Most traditional British brewing documentation from the 1700s state that Porter was a blend of three different styles: an old ale (stale or soured), a new ale (brown or pale ale) and a weak one (mild ale), with various combinations of blending and staleness. The end result was also commonly known as "Entire Butt" or "Three Threads" and had a pleasing taste of neither new nor old. It was the first truly engineered beer, catering to the publics taste, playing a critical role in quenching the thirst of the UKs Industrial Revolution and lending an arm in building the mega-breweries of today.’ http://www.beeradvocate.com/articl
I* think this drop tastes very similar to the newly labelled ’Speights 5 Malt Old Dark’. Just saying.
Christian bale - the dark kight. A man who hides behind the shadows, and appears very seldomely. Perhaps this so called ’bevarge’ should follow suit. A tangy plague like aftertaste sends you directly to the afterlife. Rulymel (293) - SPAIN - AUG 10, 2014
Black colour. Good taste chocolate and cofee in a god body beer. Nice and soft.
