Clear very dark red - brown beer. Small tan head. Smooth palate. Nicely balanced porter. Dark malt which is mild and neither bitter or roasty. Mild tang and a good dose of lactose sweetness. Finishes semi crisp. Really nice light porter - could session this, and not come across too many porters like that!
