jmgreenuk (7683) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - NOV 4, 2012
Cask at the Maypole, Cambridge. Dark reddish brown pour with a glass hugging head. Not a lot of life. Lovely rich malty fruit bitter flavour. This beer has everything. It's probably not really a porter. It's much more than that!

Kings Head, Norwich. Clear dark brown beer. Semi dry palate. No real head. Sweet orange makes a brief appearance but then it’s very nutty with a little milk chocolate and a traces of coffee, chicory and red fruits. A light but very tasty porter.

imdownthepub (13233) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 8, 2011
Cask conditioned at Far From the Madding Crowd, Oxford. Virtually black with cream head. Quite a fruity, slightly sweet Porter, a touch of strawberry in the background. then a roasty, husky note giving a little bitterness and depth, there is some tartness in the fruity element and finishes with an earthy character. Pretty reasonable.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - NOV 20, 2010
UPDATED: MAR 22, 2011 Cask Conditioned handpump Wig & Pen Northampton. A very dark brown beer with a ruby hue and a whitish head and lacing. Good creamy coffee in the mouth with roasted malts. The aroma is thin but the malty flavours include good bitterness in additon to the coffee. A noted lack of chocolate. Score 3.6
Subsequent ratings scored 3.8, 3.5 and 3.7. Average becomes 3.6

sm89walt (1946) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JAN 3, 2010
Cask - The Fat Cat, Norwich. Pours a very ruddy ruby with marginally lighter edges. Atop sits a bubbly, doming but short beige head. Dark roasted, chocolatey malt aromas with lighter notes of coffee. On the tongue, more roastiness and bitter chocolate with a touch of dark tobacco, a mild smokiness and a dry, lingering semi-sweet bitter finish. Great, soft palate with just a touch of carbonation on a medium body.

DruncanVeasey (8012) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JAN 4, 2009
UPDATED: JAN 6, 2009 Cask, Swan and Rushes Winter Fest. Headless pitch wafting with coal smoke. Dusty choc, espresso and smoke. Solid, sulphurous, nicely burnt porter. Too much for Nav.
