This is quite a thin beer with a malty finish, it’s one of the better porters I’ve had, but I’m just not that keen on the style

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at Tobie Norris, Stamford, Lincolnshire. Very dark brown with a small off white head. Faint aroma with smoke and ash. Oily, rounded taste of dark burnt malt with a hint of bonfire. Mid bitter finish. Enjoyed this on a dank, foggy November day in this 17th Century pub in front of an open fire. Most agreeable.
