stravale (2075) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - APR 3, 2014
Bottle from Drinkstore [030414]
Black, slight ruby light through at edges of glass, initial thin beige head that dissipates to no head at all
Aroma of soft roasted malts, dark fruity malts, sweet dark caramel malts
Taste of soft roast, nice dark fruity malts, dark fruity chocolate, touch of brown bread, some blackcurrant, quite complex
Palate - Very soft carb bordering on to flat, a bit thin, smooth bit oily. Finish as main flavour, smooth sweet dark fruits.
Overall - Let down by the body being a bit thin and it was rather flat, but had a really good flavour. Would really like to try this on cask one day

beerfest5 (1147) - Dublin, IRELAND - JAN 18, 2014
A nice well balanced porter that doesn’t try to do too much or be too complex. Very traditional in all aspects. Would like to see more of a unique approach from this brewer, porter is a style that is very forgiving when making creative additions such as native honey, chocolate, etc.

northropfrye (2201) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - JUL 14, 2013

ciaranc (851) - Dublin, IRELAND - JUL 2, 2013
700ml bottle, off the shelf, Doyles, Dingle. Deep Brown Black pour, thin mocha head. Intense coffee nose, milk chocolate, some resin, rubber. Flavour follows the nose, coffee dominates, liquorice, aniseed, some understated hop background. Slick, oily palette, full body. Finish is not overly long, but nicely balanced.

Leighton (10781) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 30, 2013
Bottle shared at Bruce’s 30th Birthday Bash - CBC Clerkenwell, London. Thanks to Colin. Pours dark brown with a creamy tan head. Tosty dark malt nose, some dirt in there. Light to medium sweet flavor with dirt, burnt meat, dark toast and milk chocolate. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Moderately dry finish with earth and cocoa. OK.

Scopey (6719) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 8, 2013
Bottle, thanks to Colin. It pours deep brown with a small light tan head. The nose is roasty, cooking chocolate, caramel, toffee and earth. The taste is roasted malt, light toast, soft caramel, faint saltiness and burnt malt with a dry finish. Smooth and easy drinking, but pretty so-so really.
