VIVEN SMOKED PORTER  t_u  t_u  t_u  t_u

Smoked Porter from van Viven, with an ABV of 7.0%. New brew for me.

Pours jet black, with a huge rocky bubbly creamy head. Excellent lacing.

Smokey, burnt malts, hops, spices, chocolate, mocha and coffee aroma.

Medium bodied and nicely carbonated with a slick, thick, almost viscous oily and
treacly texture. Some complexity, balanced and good depth of flavour. Silky mooth,
smokey, dry and bitter, with lots of plain chocolate, mocha, coffee, burnt malts,
caramel, peat, old leather, and praline with a strong hoppy finish. Again, a very
high quality brew.
