2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught at black door in Helsinki. Bit of dark fruit and butter but no strong Aroma. Look like a Pepsi with little bit of lightly tanned head (0,2 inches). Sweet taste, dust and watery cherries is what comes to my mind. A bit of plastic roastiness too... Bit of old bread and sourness... Not pleasant beer! To avoid if you want a nice evening. By definition avoid sambrook’s stuff.

Diminishing fawn head. Clear dark dark brown body with ruby tones. Crocheted pearl-lacing.
Aroma; mild sweet malts, toffee, floral hops, cocoa notes.
Taste; prunes, cocoa, caramel, dusty hops, chocolate. Cocoa finish with faint notes of sweet banana.
Soft in the mouth, nice body on 4.9%. Quaffable porter indeed.

On cask at Greyhound, Hartshill. Pours very dark brown with a red hue, head is tan. Quite sweet for a porter which spoils a very smooth base. Nice enough but could have been much better.
