3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
2010-08-01. Black body with a small foamy beige head. 3+ Dusty roast in the aroma with mocha accents. 6+ Flavour is milder than expected, mild sweet malt base but the dry roasty bitterness grows exponentially towards the finish, leaving a dry roasty character to linger in the finish and aftertaste. 6+ Smooth average palate is pretty good for a cask but thin for the beer itself. Pretty good but the roast character is not entirely to my tastes. Cask at Market Porter, London

OK no real addition to notes but i sessioned this at Scottish Real Ale Festival 2010 ... It just such a drinkable porter... think hes dropped the Whey element to make it more drinkable but despite the fact that i prefer the balance as it currently stands ... i think the older more whey version was more destinct...

OK Craig. Here it is. You are no longer alone in the world of ratings of Deeside beers. Huge thanks for taking me Cloisters to try this. Thanks! Nice grainy flavor, like chewing on roasted barley. A bit of roastiness that blends in well some barley sweetness. Good and easy to drink.
