ForlornHope (417) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - JAN 9, 2016
Cask at the Wheatsheaf, Shedfield. Pours almost black with hints of red when held to the light. Thin off-white head. Aroma of roast malt and coffee, but not pronounced. A hint of sweetness in the taste, then a huge bitterness. Crisp, roasted maltiness, some hints of chocolate and fruit and a long, dry bitter finish. Very much on the dry end of the spectrum, this is a good example of a porter.

Lovely roast araom, milky. Quite burnt in the taste - fairly dry, but not ashy. In fact it’s very easy to drink. Hints of bitter chocolate. A nice roast finish with some gently sweet hops poking through too - good one!
