Half pint at the Nags Head in Reading. Sweet, light roast aftertaste, a smooth porter. Very dark red-brown, almost black with a creamy-brown head. Nice aroma, you can detect a hint of rum there. Decent, but despite the ageing it still lacks a little body.

Pigs Ear. The Long Good Friday teamed up with ChrisO. Opaque black - brown beer. Little pale tan head. Dry palate. Light sweet wood (but no vanilla). Tangy dark malts. A little soft rum. Dried fruits. Again quite subtle barreling from Ascot and again I think it could have been left in the barrel a bit longer. Nice though!

Tap at Pig’s Ear 2012. Wow this beer smells evil! And it was the time of the festival when halves start creeping way over the line. You can smell this beer from a mile off, boozy, definitely get a hint of the cask finish, roasted malt. Very full attack of flavour, heavy roasted malt, long and bitter finish with a bit of hop character, also nice character from the rum, adding sweetness to offset the bitterness of the underlying beer. This is a special beer.
