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!!!!

wheresthepath (1469) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - DEC 11, 2013
Cask at the Back of Beyond, Reading. Wondered if this would live up to its reputation, and it does- just about. It’s black with no head. Sumptuous rich mouthfeel. Chocolate, tobacco and leather up front with a plum-like fruitiness following, giving more than a hint of port. The alcohol shows through as you drink more and by the end is really a little too obvious. Possibly a bit on the sweet side too, but a decent porter nevertheless.
