Cask at Market Porter. Pours dark brown with red edge. Not a huge aroma - a hint of fruit, a touch of chorine, a little choc and coffee. It's ok. Lighting body, easy drinking with berry fruits, coke and a mild bitter finish. OK. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

JorgeLee (1266) - Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 8, 2013
Gravity at Battersea Beer Festival 2013. Solid dark brown colour. Roasty bitter taste with some chocolate and a bizarre thought of Bourneville, who knows why. Tiny bit of ash towards the finish. Not bad.
