Tasting @ Home with J&C, October 2011. Clear black with very nice and rich brown head. Lovely yet not so intense roasty malt aroma. Medium to full body, balanced taste, sweet and raosted matls, coffee, caramel , ash. Not the typical porter you can find in Germany and quite a nice yet unexpected surprise from this brewer.

Bottle that Craig passed onto me consumed 29th October 2011, cheers Craig! Initially this is quite smoky in the mouth but then it subsides. There is liquorice, some milky coffee, it is a little sweet, some warmth, and a dark fruit tang at the end. Very nice. A7 A4 T7 P4 Ov14 3.6 fonefan (49293) - VestJylland, DENMARK - OCT 12, 2011
