Tap at Defectors Weld, Shepherds Bush. Pours a coca cola colour with an off white head. Aroma is pretty toasty, with coffee and dark fruit. Medium to light body. It's lemony, a bit toasty, with a bitter finish. Not much to this, really. OK.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottled) Resembles a glass of diet cola with a flaky beige head. dark fruit vibes from the smell of things , i get dark cherry and raisin.Obvious toffee. roasted malts -licorice too. To drink this stuff you get a bitter sweet beer -with a slightly thin watery palate, that’s a shame because there is a deep character on opening ,rich toffee -with a winey texture to things but this finishes disappointingly thin for me.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(bottle, as Black Isle Organic Porter, 4.6% abv) Dark brown colour with a medium-sized and tanned foamy head. Slightly tarry roast-malty aroma with notes of dark chocolate, mocha and a subtle berry-fruity touch. Moderately roast-bitter and delicately sour flavour, light bodied with a moderate carbonation. Quite dry roasty malt character with notes of dark chocolate and coffee; dry and moderately roast-bitter finish with notes of coffee and a tinge of berries. Decent Porter. 11.VIII.13
