Chocolate, roasty. A tasty porter ... better and better as I get down the glass - I’ll have another. Well balanced. Chocolate malt flavour to the fore ... complex, late palate to savour. Delicious! Theydon_Bois (20636) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - DEC 15, 2012
Cask at the Craft, Pimlico - 30/11/12.
Very dark mahogony brown with a medium sized frothy tan head that retains well.
Nose is roast malt, bitter chocolate, molaasses, touch of leather.
Taste follows, milky chocolate and way less bitter than the nose suggests, light burnt toffee.
Medium bodied with soft carbonation, nice and smooth on the palate leading to a bitter roasted finish.
Decent porter. Svesse (8803) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - DEC 2, 2012
