This has all the hallmarks of a really decent porter.
Pouring deep and dark with a ruby twinkle as it hits the light, the aroma is lightly stewed fruit and a smoky chocolate biscuit.
Taking a big mouthful makes me even more sure that this is a porter.
You are presented with hot steamy plums and prunes, cloves and pepper and all this delivered on a lovely digestive biscuit.
Then there’s the subtle but still crisp hopping, dry and cleansing it cuts through the malty goodness and readies you for more.
Dark ale or porter?
Excellent either way.
