3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Black body with tanned, small but rocky head. Quite yeasty, Fresh cheese, coffee beans and a good amount of herbal hops. Pleasantly smooth, light alcoholic back. Full of flavour which, although straighforward, has a fine lingering yet fresh bitterness to it. Salty even. Mouthfeel is really good on this porter. Taste-wise it might beed to spicy fruityness. Nice brew, keep em coming! (33cl bottle, 3,25 EUR)

330ml bottle (ChrisO’s pre-GBBF2011 "Donkey Dork Lord" shindig)
Pleasant rich roast, both on the nose and in the mouth. Texture quite full. Nicely malty. Good porter. Better than many a UK porter, to be honest. Sessionable, I’m sure, despite 6.4%
