3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle shared by blankboy with me and biegaman. Almost black ruby, clear, smallish off-white frothy head. Dry, nutty aroma with strong stale coffee (in a good way), a little perfume and not much alcohol. Taste follows, a little ropy - simple, nice. Slick, mild carbonation, a little carbonized and a reasonably long bitter slightly acidic finish. Nice one!

My bottle [500ml] shared with HogTownHarry & biegaman. Pours a very dark brown with a small frothy beige head. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee and light leafy hops. Only slightly watery flavour of roasted malt, coffee and light leafy hops. Average bodied. A good English-style Porter.
