Whoever said a Porter had a ruby red color has never had this beauty. Black as night I found a bit of red in the corners of the snifter in the light. The head was stout, creamy and long lasting.
The scent is almost unremarkable, not offensive, but difficult to love. A milky sweet blend of chocolate and cheap booze.
The porter taste does shine through. Bit of burnt malt, a bit of sweet milk, not much more, but nice enough. There's a a hint of chocolate and caramel but its weak and dissipates quickly.
Not my favorite Porter but I wouldn't say no to it either
