Classic Porter color with it varying between black and dark brown depending on the light. All the different lighting conditions have some red highlights at the extreme edges. Short lived head but there is some lacing and a little spotty film left on the surface.
Good chocolate aromas with the standard lightly roasted malt and nice sweetness.
Mouthfeel has the good creamy nature that I demand from my porters but is often lacking in many examples of the style.
Nice, light cocoa powder tastes, with a little dry finish.
Very good example – if you want to know what a decent Porter is, you could do much worse than this.
