4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
750ml bottle from BW. Bottle opens with an unimpressive pop - not sure how much bottle conditioning is happening. Clear, mahogany pour with red highlights and a medium beige head with excellent retention and leaving heavy lace. Medium body with moderate, fine carbonation and a creamy mouth feel. Nose is medium roast malt, molasses and chocolate. Chocolate, toffee, raisins, coffee, brown sugar and molasses. Hop profile is low, with some subtle spices Finish is medium, dry and roasty. Very well integrated, delicious and sessionable. Almost perfect.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Quite too light for porter. Mybe not in ABV, but overall in body. Mostly malty, with some decent roasted hints, bit nutty, caramel. Quite dry finish. Moderate sweet with light bitterness.
Yes its a porter, but I would prefer it as brown ale x)
