Scopey (9061) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 25, 2011
Keg at the Rake. it pours very dark brown, with a thin beige head. The nose is dry roast, smoke, chocolate and filter coffee. The taste is roasted malt, caramel, toffee, smoke, aniseed, metal and dark chocolate, with a dry, roasted malt finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Smooth and easy drinking.

stravale (2495) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - OCT 12, 2011
Keg @ Hootenanny, Inverness.
Appearance - Black / very dark ruby...nitro thick creamy white head.
Aroma - Roasted malts....burnt wood....chocolate.
Taste - Roasted malt...bit earthy hop...hint of orange zest.
Palate - Medium to thin body....over carbonated....finish bit dry, roast malt, hint of zest.
Overall - Not keen on this out of a keg. Might be a bit better cask but I wasn’t all that impressed - bit muddled to me. I’d prefer a pint of Guinness.

Svesse (6926) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - AUG 14, 2011
(Keg at White Horse, Parson’s Green, London, 20 July 2011) Black colour with creamy, beige head. Roasted, malty taste with chocolate, coffee, dark bread and ryvita. Roasted, malty taste with notes of chocolate, dark bread, gentle coffee hints and a mild, roasty bitterness in the finish. Medium body, dry. Nice but lacking something extra (would probably gain from not being served ice cold).

JohnRMurdoch (3790) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - AUG 3, 2011
UPDATED: OCT 12, 2013 Bottles from Appellation Wines & the brewery. Sour, grassy coffee malt aroma. Very dark brown colour, not much head. Smooth chocolate coffee malt flavour. Bitter sweet coffee aftertaste. Not a great porter.
