Tasting notes:Aroma: Chocolate, toffee, fruity esters and (pleasant) spicy alcohol notes.
Taste: Caramel sweetness balanced by a mild roastiness.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Light enough to drink easily, but thick enough to support itself.
Overall: Near perfect for a porter in this alcohol range. Balanced and quaffable, but with a lot of depth.
