500ml bottle. Pours a deep ruby-flashed black, with a large beige head which lasts well although does not leave much lacing. Strong roasted malt notes of mocha and hazelnut mix with a slight whiff of brine in the aroma. Very mild sweet citrus hops up front lead into hazelnut and sweet dark chocolate. There is a briny flavour towards the finish, but mixed with milk chocolate to create an interesting sweet-salty effect. This is a decent porter. It’s not outstanding, but it does tick all the boxes.
Aroma discreto porém agradável, com notas de café. Cor negra e espuma marrom, perfeita. Sabor amargo e comncerta suavidade. tombutlin (313) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - MAR 13, 2017
