Half, guest draft at BrewDog Leeds. Dark-brown body with a reddish tint. Diminishing, fawn-coloured head. Fragile lacework. Smell of dark malts with liquorice up front. Dark malty flavours supported by grassy hops and bitter liquorice towards the ending. Masked alcohol. Well balanced. A good one (Relaxing in Leeds on a Sunday afternoon, 30.06.2013).

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Black brown with tan head. Interesting aroma for an imperial porter-I was expecting a malty aroma but instead I’m smelling more of a Hefeweizen. I’m picking up some of that same Hefe-like yeastiness in the flavor as well as some sassafras. The finish has a anesthetic- peaty flavor.
