Draught @ Russian River Brewing, Santa Rosa, California (20.04.2016) donandres (687) - Makati, PHILIPPINES - APR 19, 2016
Aromat bardzo ubogi i mało intensywny. W smaku gorzka czekolada, kawa, palone słody. W tle nuta kwaśnej wiśni. Finisz wyraźnie przyprawowy. Czuć szczypnie w język od pieprzu. Pełne ciało. Gorzki, bardzo wytrawny finisz. Mało przyjemny porter...5,75 % alk. 14 BLG

Sampled at GABF 2015 with Andrew, Mel and Frank. Pours a deep brown body with decent off white head. Mouthfeel is medium to creamy with notes of soft cocoa, gentle roast, light earthy character, slightly chalky with soft bitterness.
