3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
[cask, at the Great British Beer Festival 2015] - Hanlons Brewery Port Stout, 4.8%, Bronze winner "speciality beers" at this event. Dark brown, with a small, beige head. Licorice, chocolate and wee roasted malts on the nose. Medium body, hardly watery at all. Mild carbonation. Dark chocolate, some licorice, some vanilla at the start, mild floral notes. More explicit roasted malts towards the middle, dark chocolate mainly. Finish is closer to cold espresso, but the vanilla note keeps the going soft. Aftertaste slightly sour espresso, again with a light vanilla note. Really not bad medium-strength stout.

Cask. Dark chestnut brown with a small tan head. Watery at first with some brown sugar notes dominating. Molasses and dark dried fruit. Soft carbonation, little bitterness, soft malty finish. I feel it is a bit too thin to really carry the flavours.
