Opaque dark brown - black beer with a good tan head. Palate is softish and a little dry. Fine minerally carbonation. Smooth dark malt, dry with touches of coffee and a whisper of dark chocolate. Light tang and light touch of dark fruits. Malty dry finish. If there is tea in here I can’t taste it. Nice porter, if a bit dry.

Thin creamy tan head. Clear black pour. A lovely porter. jmgreenuk (9449) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - AUG 23, 2013
Bottle at Deans Birthday Tasting, August 2013. Poured a deep mahogany colour with a frothy tan head. The aroma is peaty and malt. The flavour is weak bitter with some roasted malt, coffee and chocolate on the slightly watery palate. The aroma was better than the taste.
