Cask at the Turf Tavern, Oxford. Appearance is more reddish brown than black in color with some foam forming. Aroma has light roasty notes with dark fruitiness; dark malty theme. Taste is light sweet initially, later drier. Roastiness is low to moderate; bready, nutty and fruity flavours combine. Light to medium body, smooth texture. Fairly light for a porter but very drinkable. JefVerstraete (3376) - Oosterzele, BELGIUM - MAY 8, 2014
