3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask at GBBF 2007. A very dark brown beer with a beige head. The aroma is sweet malty with notes of caramel and roasted malt - the roasted malt lending it a slight acidity combined with a slight note of berries. The flavor is sweet mlaty with light notes of roasted malt, berries and vegetables, leading to a slightly bitter and roasted finish. The mouthfeel is very smooth. Nice, but the body is thin.

3rd LCRBM. Slight roast aroma. Firm roast flavor with some malt and licorice. Just a bit sweet. A touch of milk. Just below medium bodied. Nice porter, without being spectacular.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled. A dark brown "porter" wi th a reddy hue. The aroma is really fruity - oranges and strawberries with lots of hop smells. The taste is also really sweet, fruity and mellow but there is no roastiness chocolate coffee or anything I might expect. A really interesting tasty beer which struggles to meet what I call a porter but is very nice all the same.

Cask (Peterborough Beer Festival 2004) 4.2%
Rich brown, small head. Roasted malt aroma. Sweet caramel malt, some chocolate, and a gentle hoppy taste. But that understates things - the taste was beautiful and exceptionally well balanced. Pleasant combo finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy, near-black brown; bottled version of B.C.H. Sweet nose, with sweet apples and English hops. Lightly sweet, liquorice, cardboard flavours and precious little hops left. Light body, but very slick. A bit light as a porter, compared to DK/USA porters. But rather attractive easy-drinking one.
