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.
