On tap at Rams Head. Barely aroma of malt, hop, toast, chocolate, wheat and citrus. Body is very light. Respectable so. It is an English porter... BillKismet (4138) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 4, 2014
Deep mahogany body with a flush, nitrogenated head. Candi malt nose, but with a body that is rather off, tasting of west shoe, ash, and cigarette butts. Not sure where this one went wrong. callmemickey (4561) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 31, 2014
