sm89walt (1754) - Northern Beaches, Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAY 18, 2012
500ml bottle from Ales by Mail. Poured a rich, deep ruby colour with a well retained creamy, one-finger & lacing beige to light tan head. Red fruits with a toasty, gently roasted edge & a soft liquorice note in the aroma. Juicy red fruits underpin a delicately roasted malt upfront character flavour-wise. Some nutty & dark bready malts on the tongue too. Light to medium body, quite soft & smooth in terms of mouthfeel with a lingering dryish malt finish. A solid but subtle standard porter that conditioned well in the bottle.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 30, 2011
In bottle thanks to Craig. Take care when pouring because there is a fair bit of yeast in the bottom of the bottle. Pours a very dark reddish brown colour with a fair, light tan head. Aroma of caramel, coffee, chocolate and liquorice. Flavours of roasty malt, coffee and bitter chocolate. Nice and chewy with mild carbonation and CO2 prickle. Nicely bitter
