3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tasted this at the Bow Bar, Edinburgh in January 2008. Cask, handpump dispense. Dull ruby black in colour with a tight creamy buff head. Slight roast grain note in the short pleasant aroma. Thick creamy mouthfeel and good lacing. Dark malts give a treacle toffee base with blackcurrant fruit. Short bitter notes in the dry hoppy, almost nutty aftertaste. Finish is malty with a dry liquorice note. An excellent new porter.

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.
