Poured at room temperature from bottle into saison glass.

A) Very dark brown /black, opaque with thin bubbly film.

S) Subtle, but rich fruity malt and hints of liquorice.

T) ooooooo. Mellow fruity malt with a beautiful roast nutty flavour that just goes on and on. The bitterness is there but is wonderfully understated.

M) Actually quite refreshing, with the roast nut aftertaste balancing it out.

O) There doesn't seem to be a dividing line between porters and stouts in the US - this is stronger and has a deeper roasted flavour than SN Stout. I suppose the name doesn't matter when it tastes this good.
