Where I live, my go to beer. Live less than 3 miles from the brewery so always available locally. I guess this stuff was created all those years ago in the shadow of Brunel, Stephenson and that bloke who invented the lift. History in a glass, when porters were king until dethroned by that wazz called Guinness. This is born of hard times, fortitude and foresight. Wow beer.

On cask, from old notes. Full sweet malts, chocolate, molasses, but also very well burnt with coffee notes. Very dark, wonderful and pretty strong too.

Cask @ Sir Norman Rae, Shipley. Black with a thin off-white creamy head. Has a lovely smooth milky roasted malt character with just about the right sweetness.

On cask at Cross Scythes, Norton Lees - Pitch black body with a beige lacing foamy head. Nose is roasted with heavy aromas of freshly ground coffee, espresso and dark chocolate. Taste is roasted, malty with full flavours of strong, black coffee, some chocolate and liquorice. Full body, a bit syrupy. The bitterness comes through in the finish. Gorgeous!!!!
