bottle at home from abm
slightly plasticky, gushing, probably infected, luckily doesnt pass through into flavour which is a little meaty and savoury with toasty malt but unfortunately overly fizzy and thin.

FatPhil (15575) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 1, 2015
Draught (Elm Tree, Cambridge)
Lovely gently chocolatey roasty aroma. Deep ruby, small loose head. Also coffee in the aroma later. Soft palate, carbonation low. Good roasty body, but not living up to the publicity put out by the aroma. Nice burnt finish. Pretty solid porter, though, cant complain - worth it just for the experience of it under your nose.
