ManVsBeer (8241) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 11, 2016
Oldham Beer Festival 2016. Very dark with a sweetened roasted malt aroma and taste, with the latter stated enough but not dominating its character.

Pint from cask at gomshall mill. Pours a dark chestnut brown. Clear with a think white head that lasts. Aroma is wet straw, malts, slightly nutty and sweet. Thin watery mouth feel. But nice taste. Roasted malts and a little bitter coffee with a sweet finish. Hint of vanilla. The pump clip looked like the one in the photo but also had vanilla written at the bottom so maybe a different variant with vanilla added? Haven’t had the "normal" though so can’t judge.

Pours a clear, deep coppery colour with a medium creamy off white head. Roasted malt and dark chocolate aroma. Nice smooth roasted malty chocolate taste. A nice porter.

Cask. Dark brown with a medium sized tan head. Coffee, some roasted malt, brown sugar, light fruity. Somewhat thin and one dimensional. Light/medium body, light sweet, pleasant mild bitter finish. Most inoffensive porter EVER.

Cask conditioned at Fleetwood Beer Fest ’14. Chestnut with cream head. Quite a sweetish beer initially, fruity with a light coffee flavour behind it. There is a blackberry note. Decent.
