COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular.
A Rich Dark Porter brewed with 10 different malts giving a sweet roast richness that is balanced with just enough hop character. This ale has a surprising drinkability for its colour and abv. Dont let the sumptuous roast malt fool you, this porter is seriously potent & has the potential to take you to another place...

A nice smell of malt and milk chocolate, light amout of roasted malt. The medium large beige creamy head has a long duration. The body is black. At first a taste of chocolate, later on it gets more dry. The body is light to medium strong, creamy and dry with a normal carbonation.

Cask at The Hop Inn, Newcastle-Under-Lyme. A deep brown colour with a medium tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate, coffee, some caramel, slight raisin and subtle liquorice. Taste of chocolate, caramel, some raisin, subtle other dark fruits, slight roasted malts and a little liquorice. Medium bodied and soft carbonation. A dryish, chocolate and slightly hopped bitterness in the finish. A good all round porter, was expecting a bit more fruit but the description is right about the sweet roast richness with enough hop character. Decent.
