Pours with a very nice color, with a really deep red brown body and a decent head with good lacing. Actually rather attractive.
To me this lacks many characteristics of a Porter, but IS a decent, malt based brown ale. There are some really nice caramel overtones both in the aroma and the taste and there is a malt bitter balance which is quite pleasing.
Body is lacking but it doesn’t detract too much. It is thin.
A bit unusual to say the least, but I sort of like it! As I say, there are no Porter characteristics as such, but it is drinkable and tasty.
