2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
(Bottle 50 cl) Very dark brown - but not black - with a thick, light brown head - sort of shaving foam style - leaving lumpy traces in my glass. Very dry body with notes of smoked, hard roasted malts. Bitter finish. But Iím not really sure I detect the added Ferreira Port. 100402

2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Dark brown coloured with a beige head.
Aroma of dish washer and herbs with roasted notes.
Roasted flavour with notes of soap and coffee.
Dry finish of coffee.
Unfortunately I canít detect the added port - if the brewers have to add any foreign ingredients to their beers, then done so it can be detected.
This one is waste of port and beer !

Warning! Early amateur rating! Strong tasting stout, a littl bit smoky. Very bitter. A bare half imagined trace of Port! Okay - but a bit too bitter.
