This Porter poured a deep dark amber colour with a beautiful, tan coloured, creamy head. Scents of caramel, light coffee, nuts and a small amount of cocoa. First sip was delicious with flavours of roasted caramel, coffee, nuts and very light cocoa. Mouthfeel is a little weak but very flavourful. Finish is malty with flavours of caramel lingering.

2013-11-27. Crisp mahogany tinged brown-black body small beige head. Aroma is sweetish with a tangy almost vinous fruit character.
