UPDATED: MAR 25, 2014 Het is een frissere porter. weinig schuim. Smaak word beter hoe langer je hem laat staan. Lekker voor als je een niet te zoete porter wil

UPDATED: APR 15, 2014 It poured with that typical Porter richness and thick creamy amber head. The aroma hinted of chocolate but was a little masked. Very nice mouthfeel not overtly bitter and the light acidity had almost ctitrus like notes. I think this is where we can make that chocolate comparison. I should mention the temperature might have been a bit too chilled but it worked. Even though it’s a rich beer it was still very refreshing. I’d stock this because it will appeal to a wide range of people.

A slight chocolate aroma come with this deep brown clear brew with no head at all. No bueno. Sot too sweet and not to bitter. Not very carbonated. Choc aftertaste and medium bodied. Tastes more like a choc coke than a porter. Try it. Rate it. Prolly not a good 6 pack

Pours a dark beer with a nice beige head.
Smells chocolaty and malty.
Tastes really chocolaty and a bit bitter. Has a light sweet after taste. And even a bit of vanilla aroma. I really dig the taste.
I for sure will buy this again.

Ottimo prodottino inglese che ci ricorda come una porter dovrebbe essere. Cremosa, torrefatta, cioccolatosa. Da assaggiare abbinata a qualche doce al cioccolato o ai frutti di bosco. Non lascia spazio all’insoddisfazione di un palato capace di apprezzare.

Bottle from Waitrose, Glasgow. Not as rich and sumptuous as I thought itd be, quite a bit fizzier too with a milkier texture. Dusty chocolate comes through but not too overbearing. Overall not bad but expected more.
