Bottle from a Suffolk farm shop. Deep chestnut, almost blck with a thin cream head. Very strong blackberry aroma. The taste is all blackberry throat lozenge. Lots of blackberry flavour, but strongly medicinal. I didn’t really enjoy this. Too much blackberry, too little porter. A least it had some character.
