Fine beige foamy head and clear brown body. Soft nut aroma and thats it. Flavour is soft hazelnut, some dark chocolate, malt. Dry finish. Rather boring but perfectly okay for a session or three.

Vladivostok (466) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUL 11, 2016
Dark amber, slightly sweet, gently hopped and just teetering over the border from bitter to English old ale. Wouldnt go so far as to call it a porter though. Quite nice and very drinkable despite the sweetness.

Towey1989 (2249) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 17, 2016
Cask at The Swan, Stone. A clear deep ruby brown colour with a frothy off white head. Aroma of dark fruits, biscuit, slight caramel, a little chocolate and subtle spicy hops. Taste of dark fruits, biscuit, some chocolate, slight red berries and subtle spicy hops. Medium bodied and soft carbonation. A dry, fruity, chocolatey bitterness in the finish. Like most beers of this style, its very fruit and nut chocolate bar flavoured, however this as got a good body and I can drink a few of these.
