3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Black colour and amber head. Strong aroma of roasted malts. The taste is of coffee and liquorice with a good level of bitterness to balance the sweetness of the roasted malts. Nice long finish. A little watery - I would have liked a more mouth-filling quality. A well-made porter, but not as good as some examples.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Sainsbury’s, Salford. Despite the clear glass bottle (and spending a year in the personal beer cellar), the taste and texture does not seem to have been compromised and this is a punchy porter with a milky roasted malt nose and a slightly grittier than this taste. Almost black with a bubbly head.
