I’m not a massive fan of porters but this was a gift so who am I to turn it down.
Pours very dark malty brown, quite fizzy with minimal head.
I thought I could smell rum at first but it soon vanished and all I could smell was sweetness.
First taste knocked me a bit, wow. Pretty strong tastes going on. Got a load of sweet overtones and whiskey’ish warmth on the way down. Definitely can spot the treacle in there.
After a few mouthfuls, it’s going down well. Bit of a shame I only have one but it renews an otherwise distant interest in porters.
Would come again. Nice.
