On tap in a tasting paddle at the brewery in the Hunter Valley. Dark brown pour with a thick 1 finger tan cap. Good head retention and laced quite well. Gorgeous, creamy aroma consisting of vanilla, dark malts, coffee and cocoa. Mild carbonation with a creamy mouth feel. Medium body. The Palate displays mocha notes with hints of vanilla and cocoa. There’s a good presence of booze (8.2% ABV) that pops up mid-palate which adds more depth to an already highly drinkable porter. Nice roasty finish that lingers well on the back end. It’s only a seasonal brew this one so get down to the brewery and try one before it’s gone. We’re going back for a pint!
