Una porter più luppolata ma abbastanza inglese come impostazione. Miracolo di equilibrio, che gran birra!

Tap @Bir&Fud, Roma
Murky brown color, big cloudy beige head. Toasted malty aroma. Roasted, coffeish but also vegetables and harsh flavors. Also body is a bit thin for 7 % "robust porter". Maybe not in top condition.

Tasting at Bruce’s pad. Thanks to Mr Smith for this one. Opaque dark brown beer, little pale tan head. Light semi dry palate. Light touch of dark malt. Sweet aromatic ginger that carries no real heat. Light dry finish. Pleasant!

Bottle shared at Bruce’s, thanks to Leighton, 31/07/13.
Murky dark mahogony brown with light floaties, not a looker for sure, tinkered with a 2 but settled on a 3!
Nose is burnt toffee, drk fruit tang, light roast.
Taste comprises dark fruit, soapy notes, light roast, not much depth for a 7% porter.
Medium bodied but a little thin ad watery for a beer of its ABV.

Bottle at Bruce’s - London. I picked this one up in Rome. Pours clear brown with a tight, creamy beige head. The aroma holds dark malts and suggestions of ginger. Light to medium sweet flavor, further dark malts dry toast, more ginger notes. Light to medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Moderate sweetness on the finish, some charred malts, dried ginger, burnt toast, earth, burnt dried wood. Decent.
