COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Special - Winter 2011.
A collaboration between Cropton and Mike Hall, brewer at North Peak Brewery in Michigan, produced mainly for Nicholsons / Mitchells & Butlers pubs. Although the names of this range of beers correspond to beers made by North Peak, the ABVs and recipes differ considerably from their namesakes’. Note that the branding on the pump clips often excludes any information regarding the provenance.

Cask Conditioned handpump Victoria Leeds. A dark ruby coloured beer with a whitish head and lacing. A lot of black cherry in this. A malty fruity beer but the base doesn’t seem very porterish. I want chocolate with my cherry. It’s a bit like a dark fruit beer.

DanielBrown (3786) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - JAN 14, 2012
Hand pulled at the Old Contemptibles, Birmingham. Sweet, dark brown Porter, with a Benylin lining of cherry. Rather pleasant, a little like a Milk Tray strawberry cream.

Cask. Cherry porter. Dark brown with red highlight. Khaki head. The nose is pretty light, some roasted flavors, dark fruits, sugar. The taste is initially bitter, dry. This eventually gives way to some vanilla and cherry flavor. Body is medium, carbonation is light. Overall, a good change of pace. Not terribly exciting.

imdownthepub (10141) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 17, 2011
Cask conditioned at The Royal Oak, Oxford (Ember Inns). Deep brown, ruby with cream head. There is a potent cherry nose to this, fresh and really quite prominent. This follows into the flavour, dominating the beer a little, but it did seem quite festive at the time. It’s reasonable.
