Consumed on tap at the Spoons by Liverpool St. Coffee, coconut, vanilla and dark chocolate. An enjoyable stout. A good level of hops but could do with more. A little sweet on the finish. The texture is good and the drinkability is high. I enjoy a nice porter every now and then and this is an interesting twist on the classic style. Good stuff. cgarvieuk (26422) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 7, 2010
