imdownthepub (12664) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 21, 2010
Cask conditioned at Fleetwood Beer Fest 2010. Black with tan head. For a low ABV porter there is plenty happening in this, there is a smooth chocolate presence leading to a hoppy bitterness, quite flower blossom like. Some coffee. Strangeish but pretty drinkable.
