very nice roasted stuff aroma, also brown sugar, coffee. There is some hoppy balance but it is not very strong and quite hidden, makes the brew appear a little drier.in the aroma.
flavor is roasted malts, flowery and dry hoppy balance, brown sugar, caramel, coffee. aftertaste is roasted malts , sweet caramelly malts, and a little dry hops.
This is a very nice porter indeed.
