This could have been a decent Baltic Porter.
It’s big and round, chewy and dark.
There’s coffee depth and tamarind bite, sticky honey and toasted brown bread.
You’ll even find a hint of vanilla rich marshmallow and a sprinkling of crunchy autumnal hoppy leaf litter.
But this beer has been brewed with dark brown sugar and sadly instead of blending in with the other ingredients it sits, teeth rottingly sweet and sticky, right in the middle of the beer.
You can almost feel the individual crystals as you drink.
It’s overly sweet and by the third or fourth mouthful begins to feel like it has glued itself to your molars and won’t let go until you have them pulled.
