3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
330. Pours a murky dark ebony with faintly dark amber edges and a gigantic surging tan head that mousses all over the counter if you’re not careful. A big salty, smoky nose, lots of campfire and sea air. Would have guessed this for a smoked rather than a porter. Delicious though. Creamy light body, soft carb. Campfire and a bit of marine brine on the mid palate, along with bittersweet chocolate and some toasty black bread crusts. Quite nice. Long smoky finish.
