Anspach & Hobday The Stout Porter (8.5%)

The Stout PorterPouring a deep dark purple brown with a creamy cappuccino head, Anspach & Hobday have created a really good Stout Porter.
The aroma is coffee and chocolate and red berries, and in your mouth the beer feels thick and sticky and rich.
The malts are heavy with dry biscuit and sticky treacle, burned toast and espresso, and the hops are autumnal, crunchy red leaves, dry herbs, tobacco and a touch of tamarind.
There’s a good brandy warmth too, and the finish is dry and bitter, but laced with chocolate and runny honey.
