Review 
The colour, as you would expect is a dark black. The head is a creamy thick off white colour.

There is a deep stunning chocolate aroma  when you take that first smell, with almost ‘marmite’ tones.

The flavour is very similar to the smell. A deep earthy taste, with not so subtle hints of chocolate,  coffee and bread. The finish is very warm and long.

I’m a huge fan of porters and stout so it is no surprise to me that I enjoyed this beer, especially on a cold night.

TIP: Goes very well with a Clarks Pie

Score:
Appearance: 17/20
Aroma: 16/20
Taste 25/30
