3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a finger and half of tan head on a black body.
The aroma is roasted malt, mild coffee.
The taste is coffee and chocolate bitterness, mild malt sweet. Simple but effective profile.
The texture is thicker and soft around the edges.
It’s a solid, everyday drinking porter.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled. Pours a very dark red-brown, almost black, with a small light brown head. Dried fruits, plums, and just a touch of coffee on the nose. Sweet dried and red fruit at the start, then a dry finish with a little smoke. Clean and smooth, but lacking a little body in the finish. Otherwise very good.
