2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle 12.3.14. Overall a pretty average porter. Pours a light dark brown that isn’t quite opaque. Small head - smells of slight caramel, and tastes slightly sweet and then bitter. Decent finish with some fairly high hops and a hint of coffee. Pretty mixed feelings about this - I suspect I may have got a duff bottle. Pretty good body for a low abv, but not roasty-toasty enough.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hand-pulled half-pint on 4th Feb 2014 in The Nags Head, Walthamstow Village.
Nearly jet black, certainly a very dark ruddy brown: on top a full head.
Aroma is based around the roasted malts, some chocolate notes in with a ground coffee hint.
The taste is also malty, chocolate flavours again with a coffee feel within.
Basic and good, a no nonsense Porter that drinks easy and tastes fine.
