Recommended. Not my favourite porter but certainly one to come back to. Not as flavoursome as the 6.8% ABV might suggest.

Thanks for tossing this my way Pete! Enjoyed from a left hand globe.

Brew pours a watery black with a thin off grey head that doesn't hang out long but leaves some spotty lace.
Nose is roast and char with chocolate backbone.
Taste is pretty down the middle with a good amount of porter char and roasted chocolate. Mouth is cooling and char and very porter like. Nothing really fancy about this, just a run of the mill porter. No big coffee, no deep chocolate, no vanilla...good, not great.

One of the lighter-colored porters I've had. It's quite nice.
