jjsint (3110) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - NOV 18, 2016
Cask at the Grain & Hop Store, Cambridge. Ruby/dark brown, very translucent with a small to medium tan head. Some roasty notes, chocolate, nutty aroma. Slight astringency. Taste is bittersweet initially, then quite sweet with a sulphurous note. More chocolate and some coffee in the long finish along with some acrid notes. Lively natural carbonation on the mouth. Not the best porter in the world.
