OK, I know it should be left to condition at least a few weeks longer but I was keen to try it. Despite putting a decent amount of sugar in each bottle it wasn’t as carbonated as I would have expected. Maybe I was too good at getting the solids out!
How does it taste? Has the usual chocolate, smokey and coffee flavours but it also has a decent amount of bitterness and isn’t that sweet like some porters and dark beers. Be interesting to see what it is like nearer Christmas and if it has a bit more carbonation.
