harrisoni (13283) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 7, 2006
Cask handpull at Chambers Folkestone. Ok so I had 10 minutes before my train so I could only have a very fast half, but this was good. Deep ruby colour with thin beige head. Really pretty fruity with some coffee and bit of choc. Hoppy drying finish. Exceptional dark fruit nose. Vinous in mouth with good warming alcohol. My friend Martin went back the following day and confirmed that it was indeed a cracking porter.
