UPDATED: OCT 26, 2016 330ml bottle. Pours dark. Aroma is chocolate milk. Taste is a little bitter, some chocolate and some prunes. Quite refreshing, and really quite nice. A nice simple porter. Jimthechap (2064) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 20, 2009
Lovely deep russet/ruby colour with a swiftly dissapating head, but evidence of lingering carbonation. This beer started out with an aromatic wine aroma (Riesling/Pinot Gris) but slowly gave way to more coffee and burnt caramel aromas.
Excellent mouthfeel, sweet chocolate flavours and again a vinous flavour to it. Sauvin hops? I could be wrong. An intriguing drop and not at all what I expected out of a London Porter. I’d definitely have another one if only to attempt to try and figure this beer out.

330ml brown bottle. Deep brown in colour, red highlights. Tan head, a few random spots of lace. Nose has dark chocolate and roasted notes, a little sweetness. Taste has roasted and chocolate malt, notes of caramel, dark cherry. Finishes with roasty bitterness and light hops. Medium body with decent carbonation. A nice porter overall. chinchill (4989) - South Carolina, USA - JAN 15, 2014

Nose is yeasty, very much so. Light smoke.

Finish is hoppier than a usual porter.
