MarcinG (753) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - NOV 3, 2016
Butelka 500ml. Czarny kolor. Piana palona bezowa,srednia opada szybko. Aromat i smak palonych ciemnych slodow. kawy.czekolady i ciemnego razowego pieczywa. niestety wszystko psuje delikatny kwasny posmak jakby octu lub cytryny. Nie byl to zbyt skomplikowany porter.

prawlie (1564) - East Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 25, 2016
Bottle. Delicate smoke and chocolate aroma, nicely balanced. Meaty malt base with a very dry hop character, and very slight smokiness. All in all a pleasant beer, but it could do with a layer or two more of complexity.
