Notes/Commercial Description:
At 4.0% alcohol by volume North Star is very black and very tasty with the traditional smooth porter palate of treacle, liquorice, toffee, chocolate and toast.

Cask at the Old Market Tavern in Altrincham.

Light black with ruby highlights and a tan head that laced well. Aroma of smoked chocolate (if such a thing exists), and coffee. Intense and lush chocolate flavours dominate the palate, initially similar to a block of dark chocolate, before tailing into a dusty cocoa powder. Dark roast and toffee back this up to add a touch more complexity. Certainly a pleasant and well-constructed range of flavours. Smooth, medium body with restrained carbonation as a result of the cask pour.

This was a damn drinkable porter, and easily sessioned at 4%. Recommended.
