Dark brown beer with a tall thin light tan head. Roasted malt and coffee aroma with cheesy and dusty tones. Also roasted malt and coffee in the flavor. Quite thin for a porter.

Cask at the White Horse, Parsons Green, 15th Oct 09. Dark, dark brown. Chocolately malt aroma. Rich malt taste with a firm palate. Just right for a porter - hefty but not overbearing.

Cask @ wetherspoons. Deep dark black colour. No carbonation. Not a massive aroma but what you'd expect - deep maltiness. Flavourwise, it's good, though a bit watery in the mouth. Licorice, coffee, treacle and a nice bitter finish. Good.

Bottled. Black with a large fluffy tan head. Plenty of sediment and juice bits at the bottom. Subtle old-school flavours, softly toasted malt flavours that transition slowly across to the palate for slow finish. Nice beer this. #First tried at the Evening Star in Brighton, in 2001, when drinking was simple. I knew I liked it then as well.

[Gravity cask at Milton Keynes beerfest] Smokey, dry, comforting, but lacks depth for something of this ABV

Cask - Dartford WMC. Very dark brown, a fine, bubbly beige head rests on top. Good coffee, roasted malt, and dark chocolate on the nose. Dry, roasty, bitter coffee & chocolate flavours with a nutty tone, malty dark fruits, a bit of acidity & liquorice. Smooth on the tongue with a lasting dry roasted finish, a medium body and low carbonation.
