The second beer I've added and reviewed from this "Beautiful beer - Affordable prices" company.

500ml brown bottle poured into my vase shaped 'Old Speckled Hen' pint glass.

The beer is very dark ruby red in body with a creamy tan coloured head, looks a good Porter. The head stayed for the whole tasting and the beer looked just as good towards the end as it did at the begining.

The aroma was of mixed spice, the label claims the ingrediants include Star Anise, Cloves, Cinnamon, Lime leaves and dried Tangerine Peel. To be honest I struggled to find any of those in the smell.

The taste is dominated by the Star Anise, which is a flavour very simular to fennel and liquorice for those that have never heard of it.
The beer is fairly bitter in the aftertaste and dry throughout.

The body hasn't any richness or creaminess, but it does have a presence and the 3.9% abv sits nicely within the flavours.

Not bad at all for the price, not bad at all.
