Tasting at the ever gracious ChrisO’s. Hazy deep red - amber beer, tidy pale tan head. Palate is airy and light and slightly soft. Slightly sweetish cappucino. Trace of marmite. Touches of malt cream and dark fruits. Light dry finish. There is enough going on here but it still doesn’t quite take off.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Based on notes from 032914. Dark blackish brown colour that is marginally transparent, large frothy mostly lasting light brown head, excellent lacing. Heavily malty roasted aroma of caramel, dark chocolate and mild coffee with a hint of licorice, moderate herbal and sprucey hops. Taste is initially moderately sweet and slightly bitter, turning into a slightly sweet and acidic and moderately bitter finish with a lightly astringent and burnt feel. Full body, creamy texture, lively carbonation. A very nice porter, personally I prefer a bit more complex hoppiness, but certainly in the top ten I’ve tasted.
