Pretty tasty if quite sweet porter. Some nice chalk dryness to offset the brown sugar vibes...decent.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask at Kingston Beer Festival, dark mahogany with a coarse white head, dark fruit and a little apple on the nose, sweetish and fruity but with an earthy and slightly dry bitterness. Complex and rather intriguing. More like an Old Ale maybe?

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Flaske 0,5l delt med Rune under seanse hos ham 7 Jan 13. 5,8%-versjonen. Gave fra Harrisoni! Thanks a lot. Dyp amber. Veldig høyt luftig skum men mye lacing. Forsiktig røstet maltaroma. Ølet står til navnet - “Light Porter”. En må nesten få opplyst at det er en porter en drikker. Alle karakteristika er kraftig nedtonet. Men det er et bra øl. Masse bunnfall.

500ml bottle, 5.8 % abv, received from the great man known as Harrisoni during a meet-up in London last November. Many thanks! Rocky, fawn-coloured head leaving lacework to the glassware. Nice rustic coloured body. Slightly roasted smell of dark, mid-sweet malts, notes of earth and bread. Bittersweet grainy taste with hints of caramel malts. Finish off with bitter roastiness and a touch of dark fruits. Medium bodied. Not a typical porter in my book, but quite nice anyway (shared with Finn, Tromsø 07.01.2013).
