3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330mL bottle, pours black with a small tan head. Nose brings out notes of cocoa, a little roast, and almost some wintery spices. Flavour is similar, bringing out dark fruits, cocoa, and some slightly spicy notes a la Xmas spices. Not a typical porter by any means, with the wintery spices in there. Pretty well-balanced and unique. Good stuff.
