Comment: This is a big headed beer – in a good way. I’ve got some small experience of pouring beer out of bottles, but even being careful I ended up with something like an 80% head in the glass! It’s not so wildly enthusiastic that it escapes the bottle, and with some patience it settles down and leaves a wonderful looking foam cap.
Lots of rich chocolate malt on the nose and thick, sweet chocolaty malt on the tongue with a little subtle hoppiness. It’s a wonderful porter with the sort of deep, rich sweetness that I love – surprisingly deep for something which is only 4.8%.
Very taste, very easy drinking, and very regrettable that I only bought one bottle.
