Craft Clerkenwell. Martin T tasting. Almost opaque dark brown beer. Little pale tan head. Palate is light and minerally and a little crisp. Mild fresh dark malt. Whisper of malt cream. Minerally finish. Simple stuff but okay.

fiulijn (19160) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 1, 2012
Draught at The Wharf, Aalborg, as Porterhouse Anglo-Irish Imperial Stout
Black color with brown head. Mild aroma of roasted malt and some cardboard, light cheese. Medium body structure, big roasted malt flavor, ashes, some dark chocolate, salty, with strong bitterness. Maybe too aggressive on the roasty side.
