Taste of roasted malts, dark fruits, some liquorice, slight coffee, a little chocolate and subtle spice. Medium bodied and soft carbonation. A dry, roasted liquorice and fruity bitterness in the finish. Started off a run of the mill porter but developed into a more fruity and liquoricey beer. Good.
