Creedence (282) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - APR 1, 2013
Cask at the Franciscan Well Easter Festival. Pours a jet black, with a bubbly tan head. Terrific aroma of milk, oak, banana, toffee, toasted nuts. Medium sweetness with bitter, sour and salty hints. Very milky with notes of brazil nut, toffee and berries. Smoky finish, slightly sour. Beautifully complex, a must for any dark beer lover.

Bruce’s Birthday Bash at the Craft Clerkenwell. Thanks to Colin and his dad! Clear dark red- brown beer, residual pale tan head. Light dry palate. Trace of paint, a little apple. Light dark malt. Bitterish dark malt. Dry finish. Messy!

ACD (634) - Dublin, IRELAND - MAR 1, 2013
Cask at WJK, Dublin. Deep dark coal black with tan froth. Aroma is coffee, dark chocolate, raisins, hints of peat and smoke, some red fruit. Taste is brilliant: big coffee/chocolate hit followed by plenty of dark fruit and light but meaty smoked notes. Some sweetness to balance out the earthy hop tones. Full mouthfeel. Absolutely delicious; a bit of a rarity, but certainly worth seeking out.

Nose is dark fruits, dark malts, light chocolate, molasses. Taste follows - dark fruits at the fore, raisens, chocolate. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, dry finish. Decent enough porter.

Beersiveknown (2963) - NORTHERN IRELAND - SEP 12, 2012
UPDATED: MAR 20, 2013 cask at Dublin RDS for Irish Craft Beer Fest.
Pours dark brown with thin bubbly tan head. Chocolate on the nose. A complex and mouth-filling porter with smoke, chocolate, coffee, a touch of roast barley in the finish. Just how I like my porters.
Bottle at home from drinkstore
Fluffy tan head, chocolate, some vanilla, complex malt, rich red fruit, dry but light body, low carbonation but well handled conditioning, touch of diacetyl works ok here, v enjoyable

keadec (6) - Not your concern, IRELAND - JUL 25, 2012 does not count
Pours a dark brown with a tan hue, good off white head, medium carbonation. Smell is of Hops, malts and barley. Taste is a big strong taste of hops, coffee and a bit nutty. I’ve being waiting to have a crack off this one. Its has a strong taste and can be a bit powerful and a tad bitter. Long Length in taste. This will grab by the seat of your pants and give you a an attention getting weggie. This I feel is more a drink for the seasoned stout drinker. It reminds me of a cross between Nigerian Guinness and Guinness Bitter for the English Market.
