Pint at the Alpha. This arrived in a shaker pint glass. It looked like a porter should. Served too cold. The aroma began with cocoa in a roasted background. The flavor began that way, too, along with earth. As it began to warm more of the spices emerged. Flavors of cinnamon and nutmeg were noted first. Later i noticed that curry was not smelled or tasted but it was in each breath I took over the beer. Interesting. This finished like a banana bread with a few extras. I liked it.
