Mooi donkerbruin bier. Weinig schuim. Ruikt, koffie, geroosterd. Smaakt wat zoetig, koffie, geroosterd, chocolade. Smaak valt wat tegen. Tikkeltje waterig ten opzichte van de geur.

4.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottled 750ml, from Johnny’s off-licence in Rome. Not the strongest aroma, but this is a smooth porter with layers to its flavour. My bottle poured with a fine head, but this beer is only gently effervescent. I’m a big porter fan, so this was right up my street. And I liked that it was reasonably light, as most of the dark beers I enjoy tend to be quite heavy.
