Thanks to SilentSabre who gave me this a few months ago. It finally made it to the front of the DBF! Cheers Matt.
12 oz bottle.
WOW, what a pour! This looks exactly like a high quality RIS! Jet black body and the (high) head has the appearance of that mocha/dark espresso type head – very impressive to look at.
Nice malty chocolate nose, quite strong and is nice.
Some sweetness in taste but the mouthfeel is where this beer fails a little. I like a creaminess in my Porters and this fails to live up to expectations. Taste is a little thin and has a fleeting bitterness in the finish – just not quite enough.
Outside of the mouthfeel a nice Porter and an exceptional looker.
