3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
10cl sample at the brewery. Black colour with a small light brown head. Aroma is mild roasted coffee and roasted malts. Flavour is a tad watery but so are most of the porters I’ve tried. Hints of coffee, malts, caramel and some sweet notes I can’t quite identify. Bread or yeast perhaps. Toffee. Short aftertaste, but I like it.
