BrettGT (131) - Aalborg, DENMARK - FEB 20, 2016
Soft aroma of light chocolate, raisins and a little caramel. Pours black with a silky and creamy head that lasts long. Medium sweet and a slight hop bitterness. Silky and smooth mouthfeel, a tad too much carbonation for my liking. Overall a solid porter that is pretty easy going.
