Bottle Conditioned. Black with no head to speak of. Aromas are roast, sweet earthy malts with chocolate and floral hops. Flavours are dry, roast coffee with chocolate and more floral notes. Some smoky peat. Dry on the finish. A decent porter that doesn’t quite have the depth tha t is suggested by the alcohol percentage.
