COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular.
A Rich Dark Porter brewed with 10 different malts giving a sweet roast richness that is balanced with just enough hop character. This ale has a surprising drinkability for it’s colour and abv. Don’t let the sumptuous roast malt fool you, this porter is seriously potent & has the potential to take you to another place...

Obviously lots of malt on the aroma, but this has a slightly thin mouthfeel, and lacks a real porter finish

Sneeky half at the Stockbridge Tap, on Cask, on the way from work. Pours a deep ruby almost black. Creamy nearly chocolate head. Dark malts aroma. Lovely balanced malty flavours and hops with hints of Dark fruits, chocolate and coffee...very slight. An enjoyable sip though not really how I like my porters to be.

rosenbergh (10202) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 15, 2015
330 ml bottle. BB 32/08/15. At the Pannuhuone, Kuopio, Finland. Reddish black color with a mid-size foamy off-white head. Berry hops, malts and some roasty notes in the aroma. The flavor is some rye, malt, mild berries, mild hops and some porridge. Why not... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap from the Bow Bar. Kind of flat, both in liveliness and character. It has an apple-y Englishness to it as well which is strange in a porter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
