Wrapped in another beautifully designed label, on opening the cap and pouring, this begins as a decent porter.
Immediately it’s all black cherries, chocolate and coffee beans.
All the flavours are round and rich.
Unfortunately they don’t seem to last.
Perhaps another percent or two on the ABV might help.
You see, it’s ever so slightly thin, and so once you get past that first hit of lovely flavours the body’s missing the fullness you would want and expect, which doesn’t help the flavours carry and leaves this beer feeling over before you’ve finished.
As you’ll have seen from previous reviews I really like Odell’s beers, but I guess you can’t win them all.
