|Viven Porter - 7.0%|
Viven Porter smells and tastes like it has just come out of a smoke house. I wouldn't be surprised to hear they burn entire forests in the vicinity of the brewery to get the scent right. Also, go take a look at the web page, I'll wait for you. Seen it? That's right the picture of their beer looks nothing like mine. It's far far darker and lacks the brilliant bleached white head.
So what do you get other than smoke and misleading pictures?
It's a bitter and thin beer not very surprising, or especially daring, rather than a thicker more substantial porter I was expecting. For something similar in terms of price and beer I would have to recommend something more like Old Engine Oil instead.
