Cask gravity at the 2015 London Drinker beer festival. Opaque black coloured pour with a lasting loose mid tan head. Aroma is nutty roast, coco powder, earthy notes. Flavour is composed of smooth semi sweet roasted grains, roasted nuts, little nice mint choc chip thing going on is good. Lingering roasted grains and dark malts. Palate is medium body, lowish carbonation, semi sweet in the finish. Pretty decent flavoursome porter. Lingering choc.

BeerViking (2875) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 5, 2015
Cask at the Magpie, roasted coffee and a hint of cocoa on the nose, then a big roasty yet slightly watery body with tart fruity notes of sloe (sour plum). Dry-bitter roasty finish.

Cask @ the Magpie BRentford: my first god damn rate in God damn ages. A lovely mocha beige kinda head above blackness, pretty dark for a textbook porter. rich kiss of coffee dark chocolate roasted malt. pretty floral in the backdrop and rather dry. A pretty smooth and compact porter.

Gravity at the CPFC beer festival, 2013. Dark brown pour with a beige head. Christ I’ve got to enter the digital rating world when I’m out and about, my writing’s atrocious! Seemingly the aroma is toffee, dark plums?? or is it chocolate? has to be chocolate. Can’t cope with this shorthand. Flavours of coffee and chocolate. Quite a sweet little number. Dry finish. Not too bad.

Slightly hoppy, not much on the nose but sweet and velvety with taste of biscuit and cake mixture. Pretty good.

maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - MAR 27, 2013
Cask conditioned handpump Masque Haunt London 19/03/13. A very very dark brown coloured beer with an off-white to beige coloured head and lace. A sweet chocolatey fruity porter. Good hop levels. Tasty with a nice body. Sweeter than most porters but very palateable.

wimpyjoe (5100) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 19, 2013
Mild porter despite the strength which is hidden in its texture. Black with no head and a deeper aroma than taste. Manages to be crisp but is a little dry in its aftertaste.

Cask in the Goodmans Fields Spoons.Clear dark red - brown beer. Short pale tan head. Smooth and slightly dry palate. Somewhat insipid dark malt, very mild. A little tangy chocolate. Semi dry finish. Drinkable but pretty dull and a pint was more than enough.
