Nose
Full, smoky and peaty, like a rich Bavarian smoked cheese. Also biscuity.
Palate
Smoky and peaty with a lightening, airy texture at all times. Dark chocolate lingers in the shadows, with some dried fruit and a touch of citrus fruit freshness.
Finish
Dry, chocolatey and slightly chalky. Peat smoke still wafts around and bitterness pushes through.
Comment
The peaty smoke flavours take a bit of getting used to but this is a surprisingly easy drinking strong porter that would work wonderfully with shellfish. A world classic.
