Bottle from Beers of Europe. This doesn’t look like a porter, it’s an ordinary English strong ale. Aroma is sour fruits, toasted malts, chocolate. Flavour is toasted malts, fruits, bit of glue. Slightly sour finish. Not too well.

Dark ale - hides the alcohol well. Smooth and a good balance of malt and hops but not overly in your face.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottle, Monk’s Café, Stockholm) Dark brown colour with frothy, beige head. Fruity, malty nose with notes of dried fruit, raisins, prunes and chocolate. Malty, fruity taste with chocolate, dark fruit, prunes, cherries and a chocolatey finish with a slightly spicy bitterness. Smooth mouthfeel with alcohol very well hidden. Very balanced, but lacking some of the character of the cask conditioned version. Still a nice beer.
