Earthy hop aroma with a little spicy-ness. Initial sweetness, followed by some citrus and spicy hop, with a firmly roasty and bitter finish. Staunch flavours but balanced well with nothing OTT.

Pretty hop forward, edging toward black IPA territory. Roasty chocolate body with a fresh hop kick. Bit thin bodied...

stijnemans90 (124) - - JUL 6, 2016
UPDATED: JUL 6, 2016 Porter uit Nieuw Zeeland. Vrij droog en bitter en weinig zoet. Beetje flauw qua smaak, zelfs beetje waterig. Niet bepaald mijn ding.

berkshirejohn (5948) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 3, 2016
33cl bottle from Marks & Spencer, Camberley. A glossy black pour with a thin beige head; fruity aroma with some licorice; tropical fruit taste with a smooth grainy body; giving a peaty licorice taste; and an interesting combination of mango and licorice to finish. An interesting blend of styles.
