This wakens up the taste buds. Dark and smoky. Dark fruits. Licorice and a hint of nut. Log fire, malt whisky and a glass of this would be Scottish heaven.

Hout, krenten, licht koffie en sherry in aroma. Smaak begint met koffie en pruim, licht rokerig. Nadronk iets waterig, maar nasmaak is lang en kruidig. Beetje ice tea achtig overall.

Bottle @ tasting, shared by jmgreenuk. Pours a clear reddish brown beer with a thin off white head on top. Aroma of caramel, molasses, red fruits and roasted malts. Flavor is quite thin, light caramel sweetness and some very faint sourness in the background. Short aftertaste and very easy drinkable. Classic example of the style. Porter 101. Very cool label btw!
