Bottle (backlog 2014). Dark brown body with a small beige head. Lovely aroma of dark, roasted malt, dark chocolate and coffee. Flavor is sweet and smooth roasted dark malt, chocolate, coffee, hint of red berries and good balanced bitterness. Fine balanced body, long lasting pleasant aftertaste and all over a very smooth and balanced, classic porter. Nice. overtheline (140) - Inverness, SCOTLAND - AUG 9, 2017
