Nocturne (1040) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - APR 19, 2015
Cask at JDW. Dark brown with a lasting tan head and some lace. Dusting of chocolate on the nose, light red grape also. Taste is a really nice swirl of dark fruits and light coffee and chocolate notes. Mouthfeel is good, feels well joined up, neither to sweet nor too dry. Drinkable also. Fine porter.

Racked Cask at Walsall Beer Festival 10/04/15 My good god. I’ve been meaning to try this for some time and it did not dissapoint. Lucious black porter with a good tan covering, nose is smokey stout style with dark chocolate roasted malts and cocoa, dark smooth velvet. Very good.

jmgreenuk (5415) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - APR 10, 2015
Cask at the Walsall Camra, beer festival 2015. Poured a clear dark mahogany with a round bubbly light tan head. The aroma is roasty, light smoke malt. The flavour is moderate to strong bitter with a smooth toasty burnt treacle liqourice bitter palate and a long bitter finish. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Nice enough but way too bitter and smoky for me. I almost called the fire brigade!

jjsint (1183) - Ely, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - MAR 15, 2015
Cask at Bankers Draft (JDW), Bedford. Dark brown with a loose tan head. Astringent aroma with liquorice and coffee in the scent. Taste us sweet at first. Almost reminiscent of a coffee-laden breakfast stout... then the sourness kicks in. A rounded and appreciable experience. Not sure if this would be slightly better in a non-JDW outlet.

BeerViking (2932) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 27, 2015
Cask at the Kings Tun, can’t believe I’ve not rated it yet. Near black with a milk-coffee cream, Nose is coffee, treacle and plum. Texture is stewed dark fruit and cream. Hugely rich with port wine notes plus lots of burnt treacle, liquorice, a faint plummy tartness, herbal bitterness, hints of bitter cocoa. Stunningly good.
