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.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
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!
