3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
330ml bottle courtesy of Chris! Pours into a chalice glass black with mahogany tints, has a creamy tan head. Dry bournville chocolate notes in the short malty aroma. Thin oily mouthfeel and good lacing. Dark malt complex gives a moist maltloaf base laden with notes of black coffee, liquorice, woodsmoke, roasted barley grain. Earthy hop prickle gives a short musty hopped aftertaste. Smooth malty finish with sweet dark chocolate, black coffee and ash in the mouth. A decent porter.
