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 it’s colour and abv. Don’t let the sumptuous roast malt fool you, this porter is seriously potent & has the potential to take you to another place...

Dark brown with a great, thick khaki head and nice lacing. Aroma of chocolate, toffee, and some dark fruit. Taste is much the same as aroma, and ends with some hop bitterness. Fairly light bodied and well carbonated. Decent porter.

Borresteijn (7349) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - APR 29, 2017
On tap at Euston Tap East. Almost black colour, no head. Aroma of hard-roasted malts, caramel, coffee, smells bold. Flavour is watery, roasted malts, raisins, caramel, light fruity and coffee sourness, bitter finish. Light bodied. Smells promising but doesn’t deliver.

Handpump at Craft Beer Co - Covent Garden, London. Black pour with reddish highlights, brownish foam (retention). Nose: burnt coffee, cocoa powder, crazy. Mouth: raw porter, very extreme in some way. Rustic burnt malt feel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

TaxiDriver (1776) - Stadland, GERMANY - AUG 25, 2016
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.

3.3
ekstedt (6932) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 16, 2016

3.6
Towey1989 (3044) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 20, 2016
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.

3.7

Cask. Brown color, beige head with good retention and lacing. Aroma of burnt toast and dark roast. Taste has berries, chocolate, subtle anise. Very tasty.
