With clear notes of espresso, dark chocolate and a hint of authentic Icelandic coffee, this Porter is dark and rich, offering a medium body that is robust, yet smooth on the palate and easy to drink. There’s no need to be afraid of the dark anymore.

tombyars (1568) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - SEP 6, 2015
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.
