3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Tesco. Pours very dark almost black with a thick, forthy if a little loose tan head which stays in place, looks really nice. Smell is toasted malt, dark chocolate, jammy dark fruits. Taste is medium to strong bitter, toasted and mild sweetness. A little thin and watery in the mouth which is a bit of a shame but overall this is a nice Porter and one I am happy to buy again. Well worth trying!
