2.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A moderately strong dark beer with subtle aroma of roasted malts. Plenty of tan coloured head and a smoky malt flavour with a minor chocolate finish and after taste. A pleasant drink and classic style porter with not much adaptation which is refreshing as some brewers have adapted this style too much, it is nice to go back to basics.
