Lovely beer, had it a few times and each time it surprises me and how moreish it is. Fantastic fruity aroma when you first open the bottle, tastes of coffee and toffee and medium carbonation with a nice bitter aftertaste. Lovely balanced beer.

Bottle. Toffee malt and straw aroma. Amber with moderate head. Sweet toffee malt and moderately bitter herbal hay flavor. Decent body. This is the first "ruby porter" I’ve come across - not really much difference from a regular bitter.
