This is one of the best porters I've made. Although not a winner, it did score a 31 in competition. It is dark and roasty, with an assertive hops bitterness. The judges thought it had too much hops bitterness with a little too much roast malt. It is, however, a very quaffable brew. I enjoy drinking it by the yard.
