COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle Conditioned, special;
Rich ruby porter. "Postman’s Knock is a beer offering an intelligent blend of complex ingredients, the rich brown beer with a smooth fine head has a very chocolately character. The combination of subtle flavour notes of vanilla, treacle and roast malt gives an initial rich sweetness leading to a velvety chocolate finish."

Colour - Dark brown and translucent. Carbonation - some, no head. Aroma - light smell of hops, slightly chocolatly. Initial taste - smooth ale with a light fizz, slight hoppy taste, tastes ’thicker’ than most, enjoyable. During - not too complex a flavour, slight hint of burnt treacle, a nice ale.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - MAR 9, 2011
Bottle. I think we got this at Abbot store in Cork? It is rich and more of a garnet brown than a ruby red, with a head that lasts forever. The aroma is also rich, spicy, and chocolatey with hints of mint. Very soft palate and is smooth. The body is not big enough to pick up all the subtleties in the aroma but the bready malt character is satisfying and the bright spiciness of the hops is too. Not bad at all.

meerbier (1474) - Pijnacker, NETHERLANDS - FEB 9, 2011
Bottle@Home. Fruity, herbal and light malty aroma. Brown colour, beige head, good lace. Malty, herbal, hint of blackberries, some laurel. Sparkling and dry. Like and Abbey Dubbel.
