3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, at Cardinal. It’s a clear, brown beer with a medium sized dense, beige head. Roasted malts, nuts and some dried fruits in the aroma. The flavor too is quite roasted, with nuts, dried fruits and a decent bitterness. Medium body, dry on the palate, and with a lasting roasted finish. A typical British porter, and it’squite nice and pleasant. 131019

500 ml bottle at Cardinal. Clear, deep red amber body with a fast disappearing off-white head. Nice, not very strong aroma of dark malt, slightly roasted and a hint of coffee. Flavor is dark malt, light roast, some dark chocolate and coffee with moderate bitterness. Medium body and smooth in aftertaste. A nice and pleasant beer with a smooth, rish flavor at only 4,8 ABV.
