4.29/5  rDev +2.6%

Undated bottle at 45 degrees into lager glass (restaurant)
Aroma of malt
Head average (3 cm), light brown, creamy, diminishing to 2 mm ring and layer
Lacing poor – few very small islands of small bubbles
Body dark brown, clear
Flavor very slightly bitter with a toffee/coffee flavor. No hops, no alcohol, no diacetyl
Palate medium, watery, soft carbonation

A pretty darn good porter, easy to drink, not cloying.

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
