look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

550ml bottle, best before date March 2014. Long time coming!!!

a - black, semi opaque, pours a thin off white head that thins to a lacing real quickly.

s - subtle, mocha coffee, mixed with caramel and roasted malts. Hint of dried fruits (raisins)

t - malt, slightly sweet, coffee and roasted malt dry aftertaste - very well balanced.

M - medium body, creamy slightly oily texture, high carbonation for this style. goes down smooth, more refreshing than other porters.

O - what a fantastic session porter! goes down smooth, with the classic coffee and roasted malt porter flavours. the roasted flavours are kept in check, and the slightly higher than normal carbonation makes this beer more refreshing than anticipated. I wish I could get this on tap - A very good reason to visit Yorkshire I think!
