reakt (950) - Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 29, 2008
Cask @ The Pembury fest, Nov í07 as B&T Autumn Porter.
Without a doubt, my beer of the fest. Mahogany with a thin beige head. Lovely toasty malt notes, bittersweet choc, coffee roast, slight smoke and a subtle balancing hop presence underneath. Dry with a long finish, very moreish and much enjoyed.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 1, 2008
UPDATED: MAR 7, 2009 I strongly suspect that this is B&Tís Autumn Porter in a new springtime guise. A rose by any other name... Dark red brown with a small off white head. Ash and cocoa aroma with an intensely earthy, cindery taste. In the interests of balance we might have expected a little sourness or sweetness. Even a bit of graininess. As it stands, this is rough, tough ashtray beer, immensely good. Earlier Rating: 10/6/2006 Total Score: 4.1 Cask at Bedford BF í06. Very dark brown. Huge dark chocolate cocoa aroma. The taste has burnt toast, cocoa, bitter chocolate, espresso, ashtray... I donít recall another porter this tasty. A delightful shock to the system after a run of session bitters. 7.3.09 Cask at Wellington Arms, Bedford. Grainy, sour, tarry and bitter. Very good, and I am assured it really isnít Autumn Porter. Total 4.3

harrisoni (13733) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 28, 2008
Cask handpull at Pembury Tavern, London. Very deep ruby with lasting thin dark beige head. Roasted choc aroma in stunning. Good choc in mouth, very light hop. Some bitter dark choc. More charcoal in mouth. I expected a bit more depth and mouthfeel. Good flavours. Bit acidic towards end. Tad of gum puckering. Most people really liked this.

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 24, 2007
A Mes rate: Cask at The Pembury
Semi translunscent dark dark mahogany with a thin tan rim. Dry and amazingly pronounced burnt toast in the aroma with some chocolate and coffee. Stunning. Flavour wise, I had this on the first night of the festival and gave it a 6 and said it tasted of cholrine and lacked enough of what made the aroma so special. A day later and it has blossomed tremendously. Everything in the aroma comes through. Almost smoky. Awesome bitter chocolate finish with the toasty notes developing SO well. Nice rubbery stouty notes but its the toast that makes it. Itís quite indescribable but excellent. You know when someone is making toast and it smells great and makes you want some. Well this beer does that to me. Itís like having your toast and eating it! Lovely beer and it has come on leaps and bounds after a day to breathe.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 17, 2007
Cask@The Pembury Tavern. Really surprising, lots of roasted malt notes in the aroma, mocha etc. palate is very soft and round and then shows some roasted malt bitterness in the finish. The length of flavour is fantastic, a great little porter, nice and dry in the finish.

TBone (12547) - Pori, FINLAND - OCT 22, 2006
Cask@Angleterre, Helsinki. Opaque black, small tan head with big bubbles. Roasty, milk chocolaty aroma. Very chocolaty, a bit smokey, soem tar in the aftertaste. Light enough for being "easy to drink". Nice light and chocolaty real ale porter.

jehoey (765) - Shippensburg, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 1, 2006
cask at the Maltings 14th annual beer festival, York. came out of the keg delivered by gravity a black color with small head of white bubbles with shades of ruby at the bottom. Aroma is full of coffee and burnt toffee. What a delicious beer... full of coffee, burnt toffee, roasy notes, tobacco, and a tinge of wiskey. There is also a lovely bitterness imparted from the burnt malts silky mouthfeel. Excellent. Best Porter Iíve ever had
