Flaske delt ombord på Fridtjofen, RBHD-samling april-16: mørk rødbrun med fint, beige skum. Nydelig, saftig aroma med lakris, litt tjære, sjokolade og lysbrent kaffe. Den runde smaken følger opp, dette er lekre saker. Myk munnfølelse og like myk bitterhet i den lange ettersmaken.

500ml bottle @ Shrewsbury Beer Share, March 16, courtesy of Blackhaddock. Pours dark, off white head. Good chocolatey porter character, not too dissimilar to Fullers London Porter. My kind of porter. Delicious.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
500ml bottle at the March 2016 Shrewsbury Beer Exchange Group meeting: split between five. Decent Porter with enough flavour and depth to spare. Usual Porter look, black with a tanned topping, usual Porter aroma and taste of over roasted malts with a semi-bitter overtone: this just had those attributes in buckets.

Gravity at the Stockon Ale & Arty Beer Festival. Pours mahogany with some cream suds. Nice coffee aroma. The taste has plenty of fresh coffee with a little chocolate too. A touch thin maybe, but good.
