W aromacie kwaśna kawa, czekolada, spieczona skórka czarnego chleba, delikatna paloność. Barwa ciemno brunatna, bardzo dobra piana początkowo, dość szybko opada. W smaku lekki porter w punkt. Jest grzecznie gorzki, słodowy, palony i czekoladowy. Świetny wyznacznik stylu. Przez to jednak nie jest super powalający. Bardzo bardzo solidne piwo bez fajerwerków.

Tends to be a bit light compared to the great porters such as Victory at Sea and Founders. It’s very good, but not quite outstanding.

swampwater (40) - Preston, Lancashire, ENGLAND - APR 16, 2015
Aroma: A sour, alcohol aroma. Slight notes of malts, and raisins.
Appearance: Almost black, with suspended yeast, and a lingering caramel head.
Taste: Malts, currants, and brown sugar.
Palate: Quite bitter at first, with a smooth and sweet aftertaste. Medium body. Light carbonation.
Overall: Not bad at all. I’m not a porter fan, but this was decent. The yeast suspended in the beer didn’t make it look too appealing, but the taste was there!
