Around The World In 80 Beers Episode 190: Darkness London Porter
Badlands Brewery Darkness

Pours a deep, near opaque red with small tan head. No carbonation is visible.

First sip: Mild, dark malt which fade quickly to leave a lingering coffee and dark chocolate after-taste. Mouth-feel is light to medium, with a faint carbonation tingle on the tongue.

This is a very nice brew. Not as bloody-hell-this-is-nice as the IPA, but still very, very good. It is definitely a winter beer; best supped in front of the fire on a cold day. Not so good on a warm 30 degree November afternoon. When I say "not so good," I would never refuse one if it were offered, even if I was a teenager.

And it does get much better as it warms in the glass.

Love the label :)

Try 50% porter and 50% IPA in one glass, suspect you'll wonder why you waited so long...


It's almost too warm to drink this brew at the moment.

And when it hits 45C in the shade, it will still be almost too warm to drink this brew.

Now that's the proper spirit! :D

It's not a spirit, it's a beer! :p

I prefer Porters myself.
I like the Teen rating!

The day isn't perfect without a bit of platypus:
