Theydon_Bois (17941) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - DEC 7, 2013
Bottle split at Christine and Daves thanks to DLJ, 26/11/13. Dark mahogony brown with a moderate tan covering that clears to a pond. Nose is brown sugars, earthy cocoa, honey roast nuts, milk chocolate. Taste comprises earthy cocoa, light metallic, dark toffee fudge, brown sugar, rather on the thin side and a step down from the aroma. Medium body, moderate carbonation, a little watery, dry light roast tones in the finish. So so porter lacking any real depth of flavour.

Bottle from Oak Tree. Pours dark brown/black with a creamy tan head. The aroma is Hersheys cocoa. Like when I sniffed the old containers. Whoa! Yogi Berra thing. Med body. Mild carb. Flavor is dusty cocoa over some some smooth burnt malt. More dry than not in the finish. Unique.
