Nose
Smooth caramel, coffee and nut.
Palate
Instantly full of flavour – nut, chocolate and well-roasted coffee. The texture is smooth but the bitterness perhaps a little too high.
Finish
Deep, lasting and dry, with more hazelnut, caramel and bitter coffee.
Comment
This bright amber-red beer is loaded with flavour for its strength, but seems a bit too contrived and artificial. Saltaire's beers are terrific but this is not one of their best.

Nose
Hazelnuts! Faint coffee (like a hazelnut latte from Starbucks) and a whiff of tobacco-leaf. Lush.
Palate
Balanced, full. Just on the bitter side of the bitter/sweet fence.
Finish
Hazelnutty. Completely dries the inside of your mouth – just a tad too much if anything.
Comment
An light amber coloured porter with an interesting flavour profile. I really like this one, but then I also like hazelnut lattes from Starbucks...
