Cask: Seasonal - January to March.
"Bristol Porter" / "Porter"
This “Dramatically Dark” beer is a complex, satisfying Porter…smooth, rich and distinctive. Pale, crystal brown, and chocolate malts, plus fruit, feature on the nose, whilst the Fuggles and Golding hops ensure a powerful and satisfying finish…bittersweet and hints of chocolate and toffee.

UPDATED: JAN 6, 2013 Cask Conditioned handpump Eastgate Northampton. A black porter. Didn’t make notes on this as didn’t realise it was different to Butcombe Old Vic which showed up as rated. I did however score it, and from those marks it’s obvious I enjoyed it. From memory it was a really smooth porter with good dark malt flavours. Score 3.7
Subsequent rating scored 3.8 Score unaltered
