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...

Roasted, medium body porter. Not too sweet but lacks something more. Some chocolate in aftertaste. Decent traditional porter.

mickut (276) - Espoo, FINLAND - NOV 28, 2013
Cask at Gallows bird. Pours near black (clear, deep dark red) with frothy tan head. Slightly oily mouth feel, roasted malt and burnt sugar in taste. Very low carbonation and short aftertaste.

Migmar (255) - Espoo, FINLAND - NOV 26, 2013
As real ale at Kittys in Helsinki. Black, big bubbly head. Roasted coffee. Light sweetness and medium bitterness. Very smooth and drinkable. My first real ale in a long time, so probably that raises my points a tad.

foxo82 (887) - Bromsgrove (via Leicester), Worcestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 23, 2013
On tap at Rutland Arms, Sheffield. Black - no real surprise there. Weak coffee aroma and a really smooth feel. Taste is coffee malt but mild and drinkable. Lacks complexity but a nice beer.

jd543 (428) - SCOTLAND - NOV 20, 2013
Black with essentially no head (a little beige foam around the side of the glass). Aroma of roast malt and strong, black coffee. Taste was nice enough, light sweet, bitter finish. A bit thin on the palate, light oily texture, low carbonation. I wish it was a bit thicker & with a bit more body. Pleasant enough, but could have a bit more going on; a little one-dimensional.

Martinus (4591) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - NOV 7, 2013
Clear black-brown colour, beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, milk chocolate, molasses and rum notes. Quite bitter flavour, cacao and roasted malts. Finish coffee and roasted malts. Brilliant name, teleporter.
(From 33cL bottle @ weekly tasting, Benzais place. Thanks for sharing, Rene!)
