Alpha Klaus Christmas (Xmas) Porter

Well, another beer where the reputation has gone before it on BA, and the actual experience is somewhat different.

This is much more like a stout than a porter to me. It’s thinner and less creamy than a porter should be in my book, and there is a distinct bitter finish that lets the beer down.

Simple, dark brown/black pour with nothing else to report. Some head, but no lacing. The smell is low key, with very little clout and the tastes are mainly bitter with some hops. Very stout like, weak mouthfeel.

Needs some time I guess, but for now, disappointing.

Thanks to meathookjones for the bottle, but he and I did not really see this one the same way!!
