Dark brown color, small off-white head. Coffee, some odd sweet notes in the aroma. Caramelly, sweet candy, brown sugar - low bitterness. Sweet porter.
Bottle from Liz. Pours black with a fizzy/foamy tan head. Aroma is mostly chocolate. It’s very stongly and frothily carbonated. The flavor is really chocolate - but more towards chocolate soda. The carb is so dominating it interferes with taste. However, I’d say chocolate, smooth burnt malt, and some hop bitter. Tasty, though physically distracting.

Bottle poured a clear black with red highlights and a small diminishing amber head. Aromas of roasted malt, chocolate and hints of coffee and vanilla. Palate was light bodied. Flavors of dark chocolate, light smoke and a hint of coffee with a lingering lightly bitter finish.

12oz bottle acquired in trade with FlactoAlto (thanks!). Poured a dark brown (I could see through it when held up to a light) with an averaged sized tan head. Aromas of roasted malts and some light chocolate. Tastes of pretty much the same. Really not too much to this one. Thin, bordering on watery and one dimensional. Shame, being a rude boy in my ’prime’ days, I really enjoy all the SKA labels... slowrunner77 (13206) - Reno, Nevada, USA - FEB 17, 2016
An average porter at best. Had side by side with the imperial. The impy was what this should have been and this one, while pleasant enough, was weak in body and flavor for the style. Meh.
