tombyars (1352) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - MAY 7, 2014
Tasted this at the Paisley Beer Festival on the 24th April 2014. Cask, gravity dispense. Ruby black in colour with a thin pale buff head. Slight hint of roast malt in the short aroma. Very thin, oily mouthfeel and poor lacing throughout. Dark malts give a soreen fruitloaf base with moist raisin fruit evident. Slight peppery note to the short hop resins in the brief aftertaste. Malt returns in the sweet finish with a dry Ribena like flavour in the mouth. An ok session porter but not as good as Eden Seggie porter though.

Half pint from bar 1 at NWAF, shared with Finn. Deep, rosewood coloured body. Shiny black surface. Aroma of bittersweet malts, hints of anise. Slightly roasted malty taste offset by dark fruity hops. Bitter liquorice to the ending. Easy to drink. Ok porter (Manchester, 24.01.2013).

Cask at Mason & Taylor, London. Pours hazy, darek brown with a small, off-white cream. Dusty cocoa in the nose. Light sweet flavor, dry cocoa, leaves, light grassy bitterness, some burnt wood. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Very, very dry on the finish, more dusty cocoa, some wood, dry grassy bitterness, some leaves. So so.

Cask-conditioned at the Seven Stars, Bristol 22/10/2011. Near black with reddish undertones and a tight, off-white head. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate and dark fruits. Flavour had some chunky chocolate, coffee and more fruit, leading to a long, dry finish. Excellent.

Don’t get the Stilton but really nice smoky stout - solid and drinkable with enough complexity to be interesting ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
