On cask at The Bow Bar. A black ale with a ruby glow and a thin, light tan head. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, caramel and Kopiko coffee sweets. Alcohol is quite present overall. Some smoky and roasty malt flavours with caramel and burnt toast qualities. Moderate carbonation. Lovely.

stravale (2778) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - OCT 10, 2011
Cask @ Paramount, Manchester (as Paramount Porter)
Appearance - Black, very thin tan white head.
Aroma of roasted malts, coffee, dark chocolate.
Fairly complex taste of roasted malts, sweet dark caramel malts, espresso, some fruityness, bit earthy, bit unrefined though.
Medium body. Finish of roast coffee lingers a bit too long.
Nice porter but a bit rough round the edges.

AleManTom (195) - Chapel en le Frith, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - SEP 29, 2011
UPDATED: OCT 6, 2011 This is an outstanding beer. This is a beer that non-porter drinkers should drink, I don’t drink porter myself! On cask @ the paramount, JDW in Manchester. Dark brown with a decent, off white head. Cocoa on the nose. Very rich, decent carbonation making it very drinkable. Cocoa and roast flavour. Easy to drink finish of smoke and mocha. Its a delight to drink and probably one of my favourite ever beers, I’ve tried little like it. More of a stout than a porter if I must add though.

Leighton (18527) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 8, 2011
Cask at GBBF 2011, Day 2. This beer really did it for me. Pours dark brown with a bubbly, tan head. Rich cocoa nose, some roasted malt. Delicious flavor, rich and well-rounded dark cocoa, brown sugar, great roastiness. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Light warming finish, light smoke, dark roast, dry mocha. Really great.

Scopey (12511) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 8, 2011
Cask at GBBF 2011. It pours opaque black, with a decent bubbly light tan head. The nose is varnish, cardamom, sage, earth, coffee and lots of roasted malt. The taste is sweet caramel, roasted malt, coffee, salted liquorice, pepper, spice, astringency, burnt malt and bitter chocolate, with a dry-roasty finish. Full body and soft carbonation. A tasty porter.
