Review and Tasting


Sampled on 31/12/2016

Appearance:

(sample bottle BB 27/May/18) Opaque, deep brown/black with retentive thick beige head and spotted lacing.

Aroma:

Chocolate fudge, coffee cake, charcoal/burnt malt, vanilla and liquorice.

Taste:

Burnt toast, bitter chocolate, vanilla fudge, piney hops, coffee and liquorice.

Aftertaste:

Toasted bread, espresso and liquorice and lingering dark chocolate.

Overall:

This “Poorter” is brewed with vanilla and liquorice, neither of which dominates - instead both sit in balance with notes of chocolate, toasty malt and mocha coffee.
