Porter Tasting

First Tasting 

Time to sample the Porter I brewed on March 23rd. 

First impressions: good carbonation, a rich roasty flavour, slightly sweet and very smooth with an almost oily texture. Not as hoppy as I thought it might be, I was expecting a bit more aroma but overall I am very pleased with this. The only downside is very poor head retention. It's not at all flat, if anything it's slightly too fizzy but the head rapidly disappears after pouring. I'm not sure if the oats have made any difference but I think it is definitely a bit smoother than previous brews so I'll put that down to using rolled oats for the first time. 

In conclusion: very drinkable!
