Large bottle, poured into snifter glass

Appearance:
slightly foamy
dark for a porter

Aroma:
malty
raisins
lots of depth
honey
oats with brown sugar and raisins

Taste:
wonderfully tangy
dry finish
toffee

Overall:
Lovely, good to try a porter that is true to style rather than Americanized. Will be buying more

From a bottle to a pint glass.

A: pitch black with two fingers of thick kaki foam. Moderate lace on the glass as the head fades.

S: lots of coffee with some malts and smoke in the back ground.

T: follows the smell well with coffee and toffee flavors and a hint of malts.

M: medium to heavy with lasting flavor. Easy drinking.

O: everything that was said about this beer was right. Worth the wait and satisfying till the last sip. Try it!
