3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a clear dark brown with great red highlights and a thin off-white head. Aromas of strong black coffee, prunes, coffee beans, raisins and a light smoky note. The taste is dominated by black coffee, backed up by more subdued dark fruit, vanilla and spice. Getting some smoke and cinnamon at the back end. The whole thing is really well integrated and the velvety smooth mouth feel is a winner. Nice long finish. Awesome coffee porter.
