3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Deep dark burgundy red color; light-medium khaki head. Assertive aroma, chocolate malt, chocolate mousse. Dry body on the whole, and yet the chocolate character comes across very clearly. Light wood. Very tasty and very drinkable. Really excellent porter; tastes amazing while it’s a Light beer, in stark contrast to how the Americans make porters.
