3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask (handpump) at the Irwell Works brewery tap, Ramsbottom, on 27 December 2012. After starting off with three pale beers, time for a change of pace to something darker. One of those dark beers that is difficult categorise in fact. I found more roast and cocoa than hops, so let’s call it a porter. Dark brown, not black. Smooth on the palate. Prominent chocolate in the aroma. Quite roasty on the palate. Hops less so. Very drinkable and tasty though. Dry, slightly powdery mouthfeel.
