Bottle from The Wine Emporium June 2013. Decent porter with black colour and hints of vanilla and toffee. Long dry finish. hawthorne00 (4034) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUN 24, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 14, 2013 Bottle. Pretty much black with a beige head that laces well and never disappears. Earthy aroma with bread crusts, spiced chocolate, coffee, hazelnuts. Silky mouthfeel, medium-bodied. Not very sweet at all, with overdone breadcrusts, coffee, nuts, chocolate, grass. A fair bit of bitterness that lingers with spicy rye notes at the very dry end. Started around 11C and really grew on me as it warmed. Complex, original, very well balanced. Cue Etta James. [3.9]
Overt rye spiciness fading a bit. Can’t say I mind. Very fine drop indeed.
