3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap @ BrewDog Birmingham. Black with a khaki head. Aroma of coffee and freshly mined iron ore. Taste is brilliantly muted given the aroma: a staid bitterness letting in sweeter moments like flashes of light. Much better than other mid-strength porter/stouts I could mention.
