3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
24th Jan 2015: shared bottle at the Cotteridge Wine meet. Poured with a
slight haze to the deep ruby body, the head a tanned foam. The nose was a sweet Sunday Lunch sort of smell, meat and two veg! Taste strange too, some sweetness and coffee notes to add with the Lunch aroma to give this beer a funny feel. Most likely the weirdest Baltic Porter I have had so far.
