2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle split at Christine and Daves thanks to DLJ, 26/11/13.
Dark mahogony brown with a moderate tan covering that clears to a pond.
Nose is brown sugars, earthy cocoa, honey roast nuts, milk chocolate.
Taste comprises earthy cocoa, light metallic, dark toffee fudge, brown sugar, rather on the thin side and a step down from the aroma.
Medium body, moderate carbonation, a little watery, dry light roast tones in the finish.
So so porter lacking any real depth of flavour.
