Cask; Seasonal - July.
Very dark porter with a complex mocha coffee flavour - the perfect antidote to pale midsummer ales.

Cask conditioned - handpump - Malt Shovel, Northampton. A black coloured beer with a beige head. Nice roasty nose with fishy characters. The taste is lovely. Roasted malts, coffee and really rich. Very long in the mouth, and really complex and tasty. Another great porter from this brewery.

SilkTork (5156) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 12, 2003
Gravity Cask, Chelmsford Beer Festival Huge chocolate...oak bark...Fuggles...Goldings...earthy...low down dirty finish which goes on for ever, shifting and changing character. Chocolate and roasty aroma. Body is soft and creamy. A darling beer which tastes of the freedom and lonliness of the long distance runner.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 16, 2003
UPDATED: JUL 6, 2004 Dug it. A bit ugly, but thaats alwayss nice once in a while. Smoky, ashy roastyness, quite dry, with a long (quite long actually), bitter, burnt, tarry finish, i liked the uglyness of it. The bitter roastyness limgered around on the tongue for a while. (Cask- ChelmsfordBF 03') Re-rate_Liked it even more this time (cask@The Brewery Tap, Wimbledon). Some grapeskins noticed this time, full palate, very tasty.
