I bottled this beer 18 days ago but after letting it carbonate for 2 weeks couldn't wait any longer for a taste,so after a few days in the cold garage I just had to sample one. Dark plum in colour ,the spice aroma which was strong at bottling has now mostly receeded, leaving just a hint of fruit and cinnamon. The beer itself has a rich mouthfeel with dark fruits,plum,liquorice and almost oak and rum flavours(maybe I imagined the rum?), its delicious, but because the flavours are so well balanced nothing overpowers anything else. Its a great tasting,well rounded porter style ale,mine came out at 5.2% and I'll definitely be doing this kit again.
