Pours well and looks nice in the glass. Burnt malt flavours with liquorice undertones, leaves a lasting impression in the mouth, although with a thin mouthfeel. Easy drinking. Nothing special.

Artichoke (87) - California, USA - APR 15, 2014
No head. Dark cherry, malt nose. Roasted burnt caramel, light lingering sweet finish. Satisfying, not complex, and not cloying as other sweet porters. Solid and at 4.4 abv I could session all day. Great!

500ml bottle. Clear darkest brown with average, creamy to frothy, minimally lacing, off-white to beige head. Minimally sweet and roasty dark malt aroma, a touch of coffee. Very soft palate. Taste is minimally sweet dark malty with dry, roasty notes, a touch of chocolate and a constant bitter hoppy overtone. Nice.
