3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask. Coffee malt aroma. Dark body, tan creamy top. It looks like glass of expresso with crema on top. Taste is smooth if a little thin. It certainly doesn’t coat the palate like a stout. So I might question the brewer’s "lingering finish." But good for all that

I can take it or leave it with Porters, but this one drops like a bomb! Surprisingly easy to drink with flavours that excite the palate.

Black beer with a thin beige head. Light coffee aroma. Flavour is light, chocolatey coffee. It has an unfortunate slightly watery feel but it’s rather tasty aside from that.
