The Liverpool Craft Beer Co. Black Bear (4.6%)

Black BearPorter brewed with roasted malts, oats and Canadian maple syrup sounds good to me.
Tastes good too.
Pouring a deep dark purple brown, the aroma is strawberries, peaches and chocolate, and the malting is all prunes and rum, chocolate and toasted brown bread.
There’s a lightly smoked earthy thing going on too, it’s reminiscent of a single malt whisky, and behind it you find red crunchy leaf litter hops, hazelnuts and bracken.
The maple syrup provides a salty sweet rich body and adds a stickiness to the black coffee, toffee and tobacco finish.
Very nice indeed.
