North Brewing Co - Shadow Play - 4.8% (440ml)

"Back once again is Shadow Play, our classic porter that is now available in cask, keg, and can! A blend of the choicest speciality malts creates a deep dark base full of roasted coffee, sticky molasses and toasted malt flavours. It pours smooth, with a delicious thick and creamy head, and has a lightness to the palette, with a refreshing dry bitterness. For this edition of Shadow Play, we utilise a new experimental hop variety from Yakima Chief, HBC472, to see what flavours and aromas it would impart to this traditional style. A sister hop of Sabro, it brings aromas of toasted Brazil nut and enhances the flavours of each malt variety used. "
