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.

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.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.
