An unusual combination of fruity hoppyness with a dark, malty side. This beer is distinctly difficult to categorise – is it sort of a porter or maybe a mild? You decide!
Colour: Dark Ruby
Hops: Pilgrim, Celeia, Others

Cask (Pint Shop, Cambridge)
Nice chocolatey aroma. Brown husky aspects. Dark ruby, small tight head. Simple palate, quite dry and bitter. Not so refreshing. On the board as a mild, but I think this is more old-school porter. Palate a little harsh. A bit too drying.

MrBlueSky93 (503) - Sutton Coldfield, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 31, 2015
Cask at The Organ Grinder, Nottingham. Pours amber with a small off white head. Aroma of caramel, toffe, light hops, some sweetness. Taste of initial caramel, light malts, toffee, some fruits, berries, orange and some subtle grassy, herby hops to finish. Nice.

Better than some of this type but it illustrates the gap in the brewery’s range: Guerilla standard no; Ape hardly; Infinity no. But good enough to watch Chelsea

jaghana (4828) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - FEB 19, 2015
Bottle 50cl from Ollie thanks. A clear amber red beer with low head. Nose is on caramel and hops resin. Aroma is on caramel, hops resin, honey, light berries, orange and orange peel, refreshing, light chocolate. For a porter the dark malt notes are a bit shy. Finish is more on grassy hops, more like an english bitter with a touch of licorice, nice.

MichaelAwesome (5920) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - FEB 7, 2015
Ein Porter, das zwar schwachbrüstig daherkommt, aber dennoch mit seiner leichten Säure und ausgewogenen Aromen punkten kann. Röstmalze, etwas Kaffee, vielleicht gar Nüsse und eine leichte Fruchtigkeit. Nicht schlecht !

McTapps (5926) - Ruhrcity, GERMANY - FEB 6, 2015
Bottle from niquillis - many thanks! The beer has got a deep dark brown - blackish colour with a low head and medium body. Aroma of malt, hops and biscuits. Taste of malt, dark roasted hops, amaretto / marzipan, biscuits, cake, bread, flowers, caramel, vanilla and mild herbs. Easy and smooth to drink, enjoyed it.

AshtonMcCobb (4133) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 2, 2014
Bottle from Appellation Wines. Appearance - dark brown with some red chinks around the glass. Nose - toffee, nuts and alcohol with marzipan. Kinda battenburg cake. Taste - sweet toffee, coffee and honey. Bitter amaretto biscuit. Palate - medium to full bodied with a rich sweet yet dry texture and a balanced dry malty finish. Overall - very complex given the 4.2%. But is it good. Yes quite!
