Nose
Smoky, dark, chocolatey malt with a complementary hit of peppery, perfumed coriander that soon takes over.
Palate
Crushed coriander seeds – earthy, pungent and scented – dominate the dark malt flavours. There's also a gentle tartness and a peppery warmth.
Finish
Dry, bitter and a little bit chalky. Roasted grain comes through but earthy coriander is still in charge.
Comment
Some might find the coriander just a touch too heavy as a flavouring for this rich, malty, bottle-conditioned porter, but it's a very pleasant creation.
