2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
4th December 2007
Pigs Ear Festival, Hackney. Dark red porter. Mild mild porter. Unremarkable but drinkable. Okay.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask gravity, Rugby 09. Still and almost stout-like decapitated pitch. Watery roast and caramel aroma soft with cocoa, leaves and bramble. Butter and slight cherry fighting the smoke. Liquorice licks. Decent.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
From my own city. Dark, almost black with small head. No lacing. The taste is roasty, some coffee. There is a slight taste of honey. Slight sour aftertaste. The body is thin.Not my favorite porter but OK. Would like to try some of Moonshine’s other brews.

A Sim rate (cask at... you guessed it.. Pig’s Ear): Smells of dark chocolate, caramel and cherry. Very rich and hazelnutty. Quite bitter in the flavour. Subtle flavours, rich and red winey. Bitter in the finish. So nice in its promise to be creamy and full, but not much delivery.

Pig’s Ear BF as Portered Pigs.
Sweet, fruity, some sourness, but overall I fouind this too sticky.

Cask conditoned at Pig’s Ear 2007. I had this down at Portered Pig’s Ear at 4.6%, but I guess it is the same entry. Very dark brown. Not great condition. Some good chocolate. Slight sting on end. I mean, it’s a mild rather than a porter for me.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle conditioned; limited edition brewed for 23rd Pig’s Ear BF, London 2006. Black coloured with no head. Cask-like condition and palate. Sweet roasty, chocolatey aroma- a smooth mild-like easy-drinker with plenty of roasty flavours and fleeting hop notes. Lovely stuff!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask @ Wenlock Arms, London. Almost pitch black coloured. Fluffy off white head. Sweet and spiced aroma with some herbal and roasty notes. Flavour is light herbal and full of berries. Chocolaty notes. Is quite full bodied. Herbal bitter end. A bit on the mild side for a porter IMO.
