Cask-conditioned at Mr Foley’s Cask Ale House, Leeds 23/06/09. Dark mahogany with a slight tan head. Big caramel and coffee aroma. Flavour started with some sweet, milk chocolate before roastiness kicked in, leading to a warming alcohol and moderately bitter finish. Excellent.

Cask at Chelmsford Winter BF. Easy-drinking, smooth, roasty porter with a sticky hop-bitterness. Big flavor but you could drink it all day. Or you at least think you could.

Half at the Bodega, I’m generally not a fan of porters but this was drinkable enough, thick dark pour, viscous mouthfeel. Smell is alcoholic and toasted malts. Taste is sweet toffee and burnt malts, a little hops and quite a strong coffee flavour. Fairly warm alcoholic finish. Decent enough.
