4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Standard black pour with red edges. Thick, rich aromas of chocolate, dried grass and roasted malt. The tastes are way above average. Chocolate, nuts, coffee, toffee and sweet malt. A top notch porter indeed.

Typical dark brown, verging on black, thick lasting creamy head. Weak roasty chocolate nose, slightly stronger flavor which again is primarily bittersweet chocolate and roasted grain. Thin finish.
