jmgreenuk (3580) - 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 (2182) - 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 (12674) - 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.

Theydon_Bois (7002) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - MAR 19, 2014
Cask at the Lyric, 17/03/14. Black with a good sized tan head that retains well. Nose is sweet chocolate, vanilla essence, caramel fudge, sugary notes. Taste comprises much the same, sweet lickings, choco vanilla fudge. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, massageing on the palate, sweet close. Looks and feels good but overly sweet at the business end for me.

Finn (3759) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 16, 2014
Waggon & Horses, York 26 Jan 13. Svart. Medium høyt farget skum. Sterk & god aroma av melkesjokolade. Smaken det samme.

Beese (1099) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 28, 2014
Bottle - Xmas gift. Poured a very dark ruby with a dense tan head. Rather unappealing aroma of Oxo cubes, liquorice and acrid sweetness. Heavy carbonation in the mouth feel. Sweetness continues on the tongue with notes of fudge and vanilla essence and some sharp, bitter coffee. Frankly unpleasant. Finish was toffee, dark malt and banana bread. I don’t like sweet dark beers at the best of times, but this I didn’t care for at all.

spacecube (658) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 15, 2013
Cask at Kirkstall Bridge, pours pitch black with a small tan head. Chocolate and vanilla in the aroma, very smooth and rich. Palate is thick, carbonation low. Balance is very good with a light bitter finish. Very impressive.

McNeillR (979) - SCOTLAND - DEC 8, 2013
Dark charred black wooden body with a luxurious tan head. Rich milk choc nose, subtly sweet Milkybar tones. Silky mouthfeel flattened by a tense cocoa/vanilla sweetness on the initial taste. Cosily bitter with a dessert laden sweetened rich finish. Suprisingly decadent, would love to see how this performs in bottle.

Cask, House Of Trembling Madness, York [21/10/13]
