I'm rating the ascot smoked porter at the beer festival in hackney. Fruity milky aroma. Dark and lightly smokey with a subtle aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cask at Kings Tun JDW. Dark reddy brown, still, small tan head. Aroma has toffee and coffee. Body is medium, smooth, low carbonation. Taste is light coffee flavoured liquer chocolates, toffee, ashtray, bit of werthers original. Nice balanced flavours and not oversweet.

imdownthepub (10648) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 10, 2014
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.

kwik-lime (1373) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 15, 2013
Chocolate aroma, pleasant roasted malt with hints of coffee and chocolate but for me this was really let down by a thin and watery palate. Disappointing.

HogTownHarry (6129) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - AUG 21, 2013
August 21, 2013 - hand-pull cask at The George (Fleet Street). Clear deep refractive ruby with a solid lasting tan creamy/foamy head. Aroma is simple sweet caramel with light floral bitterness - like a very light Scotch Ale; taste is surprisingly bitter - pungently so, the sweet malt steps back three paces and keeps its eyes averted; not my alcohol. Light body, ever so slightly slick, pretty much zero carbonation, with an amazingly long pungent coating bitter finish that borders on grapefruit intensity. Weird. Interesting.

Rob_D_UK (871) - Surrey, ENGLAND - MAY 8, 2013
Dark almost black porter with hints of the light through it. Decent white head with a good retention. Lovely slightly smoky aromas of roasted dark malts with some coffee. Good rich mouthfeel with chocolate malt and a sour fruity finish that really cleaned the palate.

ladnewton (1474) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 10, 2013
Cask at Craft Beer Co, Islington on 26th January 2013. Deep ruby copper with tan head and part lacing. Mildly fruity aroma. Light roasts and berry fruits in mouth. Sweet berries and malts in finish. Medium body and smooth light mouthfeel.

prawlie (1186) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 1, 2013
Pint on draught at the Nags Head in Reading. Black with red highlights, creamy head. Lovely chocolate aroma. Chocolate roast, almost a mild but with a little more porter roast. Novelty wears off after a bit, a fair porter.

jackl (4972) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - OCT 7, 2012
Cask @ The White Horse on Parsons Green. The pour’s deep brown with no head whatsoever. The nose is shredded toasted coconut, nuts, some chocolate and toffee. The taste is coffee cake, more chocolate and mild coconut. Rich, smooth body. Soft carbonation. Wet(ish) finish. Actually a quite nice porter.

Theydon_Bois (9935) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - SEP 12, 2012
Gravity dispense at the 1st Runnymede Beer Festival - 08/09/12. Very dark brown with a thin tan head. Dark roasted malts dominate the nose with coffee, licquorice and chocolate. Taste follows from the nose, nice roasted tones to this beer. Ligher end of medium bodied with minimal carbonation, quite wet.
