KeefOz (1615) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - AUG 23, 2014
Poured an opaque black with a slight mahogany edge tint and a one- to two-finger light tan foamy head that retained OK and laced well. Aroma of sweet malts; strangely for me no obvious roasted characters. Taste completely different to aroma being quite roasted malty. Medium body. Creamy and smooth with lingering roasted notes on the finish. Average for a porter.
