On-tap at Opal Devine's Freehouse. Listed at 6.80% ABV.
Poured a beautifully opaque, seal brown body. Glimmers of ruby red squeeze in around the edges. Excellent retention on the finger's width of custard-colored head; thick sheets of brown lacing left behind on most of the glass. Aroma is rife with roasted coffee and chocolate malts backed by earthy, floral hops and a rich presence of yeasty esters.
Taste is not as flavorful or complex as the aroma had suggested, but still quite good, with dark chocolate and a nutty caramel sweetness. Dank, dark fruits drop out of the middle before getting pushed aside by soft chocolate and hoppy notes. A touch of bitterness lingers in the finish. The full-body provides a creamy mouthfeel, and the light carbonation makes for an easy-drinking porter--more stout like in it's consistency, to be honest, but I don't mind. Thoroughly enjoyable brew, and one I look forward to having again.
