Med brown. Mostly caramelly aroma. Sweet and with a touch of sour, I guess not as well -developed as I’d like.

Nitro at the Lord Nelson Brewery on the Rocks in Sydney Harbour. Pour was a clear ruby with a nice Irish dry stout nitro head- thick and creamy beige with great nitro retention and sheety nitro lace. Aroma, of course, muted albeit some tobacco and Whoppers malt balls come through. Taste is light coffee, creamy, caramel, light bitterness from roasted and chocolate malt. Slightly oily on the palate and even a bit syrupy. Certainly not watery like most dry stouts.

Way too thin and watery for a porter, really weak and flavourless.
