Mescan Brewery Westporter Stout (5%)

Mescan are an Irish brewery using Belgian techniques and this is a really good little Stout.
Pouring an inky black with a little cappuccino head, the aroma is lightly spiced chocolate and prunes.
From the first mouthful you discover that this beer is all about its malting, with digestive biscuits, black coffee, treacle tart, cocoa powder and a hint of tamarind before the hops come in with crunchy autumnal leaf litter, dandelion and burdock and a dab of orange marmalade, and all this is powered by a warm earthy yeast hit that drives you towards a very satisfying chocolate cake finish.
