imdownthepub (12585) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 22, 2016
Cask conditioned at The Small Bar, Bristol. Black with tan head. This was quite a smooth porter, quite fruity with berry notes to the fore. Some sweetness, some darkly roasted malts. All in all pretty decent.

Silvan7 (1008) - Samarate, ITALY - OCT 27, 2015
On tap @ CASK (Pimplico, London). marrone, molto scura, velata, con schiuma beige finissima e persistente. Aroma piuttosto intenso, decismaente maltato, tostato, ricorda la frutta secca, nocciole e noci brasiliane. Erbaceo da luppolo molto intenso per lo stile. note di vaniglia meno intense nel retrolfattivo. Gusto abboccato, maltato, tostato deciso, dal cacao amaro alla nocciola. amaro luppolato il finale. leggermente acidula. Corposa, quasi oleosa, carbonatazione debole, poco calda, piena. equilibrata ed armonica

thmsboyd (191) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - SEP 21, 2015
Bottle BBE: 16 Mar 16. Cellar temp. (+2hr@RT). Pours near black with a hint of red/brown, with a large, tight, creamy tan head. ’Green’ nose; mossy and herbal with a little cheese & onion. Below that, rich toffee and burnt toast aromas. A moderate coffee bitterness is underpinned by a light caramel sweetness on the tongue. The body is medium, the texture slick, carbonation medium-low and the finish toasty and slightly astringent. Overall an enjoyable porter, a bit hoppier than typical for style.

gegwilson (2737) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 14, 2015
Bottle from Hippo Beers in Glasgow. Pours deep mahogany with a rocky beige head. Sweet malty liquorice aroma. The taste is smooth and malty starting with light spice along with black fruits, ash an a touch of liquorice. Nice enough.
