MrBlueSky93 (418) - Sutton Coldfield, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 15, 2015
On tap at Meet The Brewer, Cellar Door Drinks, Four Oaks. THIS IS NOT RETIRED!!! Pours red-brown with small head. Aroma of dark fruits, toasted malts, caramel and toffee. Taste of initial dark fruits, not too heavy though, then some toasty malts then a lovely smoky finish. Rate it!

BlackHaddock (4713) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - FEB 24, 2015
Half-pint, hand-pulled on 24th Feb 2015: this Dandelion and Burdock Porter is not retired. Ruby hue to the reddy brown body, on top a creamy head in colour and texture. Sweetish feel to the brew with a definite flavour of that old English favourite pop: Dandelion and Burdock. Good body depth and overall a pleasant and easy drinking brew.

Gravity pour at cpfcbf. Pours dark brown. Aroma is slightly toasty, a little dark fruit, lemon. Light body, medium carbonation. Some light coffee, light caramel, touch of blackcurrant. Tastes a bit too tart - not right. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Scopey (8526) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 17, 2014
Cask at CPBF 2014. It pours deep brown with pretty much no head. The nose is earth, toast, plum pudding, spice, cherry cola, caramel, jam and dried fruits. The taste is toasty, tangy fruits, berry, plum skin, date, earth, toasty and raisin with a dryish finish. Touch if tang, suggests early infection. Medium body and soft carbonation. So-so.

jmgreenuk (5616) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - MAY 11, 2014
Cask at The Wellington, Birmingham. Poured a clear dark brown with a reddish hue and a frothy off-white head. The aroma is light fruit hop. The flavour is light bitter with a roasted malt light bitter "dandelion and burdock" fruit palate. Light bodied with soft carbonation. A pleasant ale and very drinkable but Iím not sure that Iím into fruity porters tbh. Those people that are will rate it higher than I did. Cask in 2014 so not exactly "retired".

DJMonarch (9162) - Northwich, Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAY 24, 2011
Cask Stillage from the Cellar at the Prince Of Wales, Foxfield 12/03/2011 Fruity aroma. Dark coloured and a little rich on the palate with some spicy liquorice flavour. A hint of dryness in a bitter roast finish.

chriso (7482) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 7, 2011
Cask (gravity dispense) at Reading Beer Festival, 30 April 2009. Dark brown with a ruby tinge. Something unusual here that I canít quite identify. Ah - D&B stands for dandelion & burdock, thatíll explain it. Itís quite restrained but definitely there. Also berry fruit on the palate but finishes dry and slightly ashy. I canít stand dandelion & burdock so, even if the influence is subtle and the beer competently made, I canít say I found it particularly appealing.

tommann (2982) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - NOV 25, 2010
Cask at the Courthouse, Dudley. Pours dark brown with a deep ruby hue and a small head. Aroma was bitter coffee. Had a coffee start and a milk chocolate finish.
