Back in England I used to end a night's drinking with one of these. I could not believe my eyes when I found some in my local supermarket here in Korea.

A: Black body with beige head comprising various sized bubbles. Head dissipates quickly leaving a bit of lacing.

S: Needs a good old swill to activate its nose. Caramel and marmalade. Challenger hops?

T: Chocolatey sweetness, woody spice, cut grass. It's smokey yet bright and flavourfull. Some berries and a good amount of bitterness in the aftertaste. Tastes very clean.

M: Not too thick and not too thin. Silky, like a Leffe Brune.

O: A very nice porter. Very well balanced.
