Dark unsweetened chocolate or carob, light musty buttery yeast nose, lemony twang from the hops and some charcoal tie things up in the aroma. Strong medium body, sturdy smoothness and a dryish mouth feel. Carbonation is mild and very appropriate. In your face coffee and carob flavour with a small and quick yet rounded sweetness. Hop bitterness flares in to a happy medium to bring a perfect balance. Earthy dry. Musty buttery yeast hits middle to end to add a lustful character to this ale, touch of astringentcy towards the end from the roasted malts to stop with a dry finish. Old style porter to say the least, A blend of old and new beer. A very well structured beer with lots of flavour going on ... a sharp cheddar and whole grain crackers pairs extremely well with this one.
