Foxbush (1461) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - APR 25, 2015
330 ml bottle at the Icelandair Hotel in Akureyri The porter poured a dark brown- black with tan frothy head and some lacing. Burnt malt greets you. The taste of roasted malts, chocolate and toffee add to the complexity. The porter has a medium body and soft carbonation. The clean smooth finish had you wanting more.
