A Mes rate:
Gravicask @ Reading Beer Festival. Black colour with a great creamy off white head. Served in top condition. Proper porter nose with plenty of rubbery dark chocolate malt. Not overly brimming with character in the mouth but still ver good. Palate is just about right. A very enjoyable porter. Just how it should be.
