3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Ruby red, mahagony brown coloured with a medium fading lightly tan frothy head. Noses of bread, caramel, sweet chocolate faintly roasted/toasted. Light propelled by CO2 which supports a rather slick, oily and lightly velvet texture. Soft on the lips. Full bodied porter, offering medium sweet faintly bitter tastes, being a bit chewy but all in a pretty good balance. The finish is medium-long leaving a light bitter roast aftertaste on the palate.
