Cask, 5.8%. Appearance is very dark, ruby tinge, a half-finger beige head. Aroma is chocolate, coffee, liquorice and port notes. Taste- lots of dark fruits, especially blackcurrant, port hints, bitter hops and coffee, cocoa powder. Pretty good.

BeerViking (2683) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 16, 2014
Cask at Kingston Beer Festival, dark mahogany with a coarse white head, dark fruit and a little apple on the nose, sweetish and fruity but with an earthy and slightly dry bitterness. Complex and rather intriguing. More like an Old Ale maybe?

Pretty tasty if quite sweet porter. Some nice chalk dryness to offset the brown sugar vibes...decent.

Flaske 0,5l delt med Rune under seanse hos ham 7 Jan 13. 5,8%-versjonen. Gave fra Harrisoni! Thanks a lot. Dyp amber. Veldig høyt luftig skum men mye lacing. Forsiktig røstet maltaroma. Ølet står til navnet - “Light Porter”. En må nesten få opplyst at det er en porter en drikker. Alle karakteristika er kraftig nedtonet. Men det er et bra øl. Masse bunnfall.

500ml bottle, 5.8 % abv, received from the great man known as Harrisoni during a meet-up in London last November. Many thanks! Rocky, fawn-coloured head leaving lacework to the glassware. Nice rustic coloured body. Slightly roasted smell of dark, mid-sweet malts, notes of earth and bread. Bittersweet grainy taste with hints of caramel malts. Finish off with bitter roastiness and a touch of dark fruits. Medium bodied. Not a typical porter in my book, but quite nice anyway (shared with Finn, Tromsø 07.01.2013).

Theydon_Bois (9912) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - DEC 3, 2012
Cask (inside bar) at the 13th Egham BF @ EUSC - 15/11/12. Murky dark brown with a mahoosive frothy off white head. Nose comprises malts, liqourice, some spice. Tastes of dark malts, toffee, hint of booze. Medium bodied with light carbonation lending towards a smooth lightly roasted finish. Decent enough.

Cask conditioned at Egham Beer Fest #13. Brown to chestnut with cream head. There is a smooth maltiness about this, toffee, caramel with a baked roasty background, some smokiness and just a hint of bitterness. Very decent.
