from lokal shop in Romsay. Thank's Karol. Mala piana, barwa ciemna lecz przeswitujaca, o aromacie coli, moze bardziej cherry coke, nieco ciastek korzennych i zbyt mocne nagazowanie. Ogolnie malo gozkie, malo wyraziste takie pepsicolowate. Odradzam HenrikSoegaard (14648) - Randers, DENMARK - MAR 18, 2017

Cask handpull at Hamilton Hall London as ’Flack Manor Black Jack’, 4.6%. Dark brown with a red hue, still with a foamy brown head, full lacing. Aroma is iced coffee, frappuccino, wholemeal bread. Body is rounded, soft carbonation. Taste is light chocolate and twig, some coffee notes, light milk chocolate on a wafer biscuit, some ashy notes. Very drinkable. Tasty in a restrained way. At times it threatens to get watery but that ashy finish lifts it. A very good porter. Excellent for style.
