The_Osprey (7881) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 16, 2015
Cask at The Railway, Putney. Black, red hue, small foamy off-white head, thick lacing. Aroma is like cigarette ash in water. Body is medium to light, smooth, soft carbonation. Taste is toffee and roasted nuts up front, light salt, dark bread crusts. Nice level of bitterness. A very drinkable, subtle porter that gets better the more you drink of it.
