jmgreenuk (4251) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - APR 4, 2014
Cask at the Black Country Arms, Walsall. Poured a dark mahogany with a frothy white head. The aroma is caramel roasted malt and light fruit. The flavour is medium bitter with a rich roasted malt liqourice bitter, red berry fruit vanilla palate. Full bodied with soft carbonation and rich oily mouthfeel. Very rich and more like a stout than a porter. A superb beer with lots going on.

allmyvinyl (3135) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 25, 2014
Cask at The Blue Bell, York. Dark brown, near black, long-lasting beige head. Big chocolate aromas, light vanilla. Sweet taste, more like a milk stout than a porter. Nice though.

harrisoni (13596) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 22, 2014
Cask handpull at The Exmouth arms Farringdon. Black beer lasting beige head. Huge chocolate on the aroma. Almost comical chocolate in the mouth like powdered chocolate. 10 years ago this was acceptable. Now? Nope must try harder. Putting more of something into a beer doesn’t mean it’s better. Had to leave it. Way too much chocolate.
