3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
50 cL bottle. Pours black with a dense light brown head. Roasted malt and chocolate aroma. Promise of a roasted and hops bitter flavour. Flavour is mild tar, light smoked, roasted malt and smooth chocolate following. Very smooth with liqourice added along the way. Light roasted bitterness following into a chocolate and roasted malt bitter finish. Very nice. One of the pre-RB beers I finally get to rate. Perfect for boiling vegetables in the owen, carrots for instance. Seriously!

Dark beer with a low brown head.
Intensive aroma of malt and liquorice.
The taste is powerful but dominated by english liquorice.
A very good porter, especially on a cold day.

Bottled. Black, rich head. Aroma of coffee and plums. Sweet, rich, salty and very burnt with notes of dates. Quite chocolatey. The mouthfeel is a bit less gentle than their Havre Stout, and it is cleaner and harder. Coffee and syrup in the finish.

Best beer of the night at the Publick House near Boston. Deep ruby-red medium-bodied porter with flavors of toffee and coffee, and a slightly smoky finish. It tasted like a true British porter, whereas most American porters taste like stouts.
