Bottle from New World. Odd sticker with this name covering the normal name spot so not sure what the deal is with this beer. Best before 14.03.13. From notes.

A - Poured black with mild carbonation and one finger of mocha head. Film of retention and good lace rings.

S - Coffee and vanilla. Both elements balanced well but the vanilla came through a bit stronger. Nice.

T - Vanilla sweetness lead to a coffee finish with no hint of 8% and very well balanced.

M - Good carbonation and a full body with a spot on bitterness.

O/D - A good beer that balanced sweetness and coffee properly. The adjuncts definitely dominate but the porter is well integrated. Easy to drink. Good.
