harrisoni (17352) - Ashford, Kent, - APR 15, 2006
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 Cask gravity at Planet Thanet BF 2006, Ramsgate. Very dark brown with ruby edges. Thin beige head. Bit of liquorice/coffee and some choc on the aroma. Quite carbonated in mouth. Some sourness and more coffee in mouth, syrupy liquorice on the finish. Some sour damson fruit. Not a bad porter but a bit too syrupy and sour for me. 2.6/5 re-rate at County Hotel Ashford. Good condition good mouthfeel some chocolate. Fine

jjsint (2377) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - OCT 17, 2014
Cask at the Wellington Arms, Bedford. Translucent dark chocolate brown, with an innocent halo of beige head. Chocolatey, nutty, malty aroma: basic but effective. A mild malty bittersweet, with more bitter chocolate notes coming out after the initial sip. The mouthfeel is a bit thin. This is a really good porter, perfect for an autumn evening.

DruncanVeasey (8012) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAR 27, 2014
The Felix Holt, Nuneaton. Stout looks with cream head and ruby trim. Hot butter, Sugar Puff nose. Buttered rust flavour with burnt almond hints. The butter is distracting and diminishes the porter character. Not great.
