The_Osprey (6351) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 13, 2015
Cask at GBBF 2015. Dark brown, small bubbly white head. Aroma is candy floss, sweet dried dough, some red berry. Body is medium to light, smooth, low carbonation. Taste is cola, some ashy bitterness. Nice aroma but a bit of a thin flavour. Came across like a mild.

Cask gravity at gbbf 2015 day 3. Thanks to Colin. But brown coloured pour with a lasting halo of white head. Aroma is vanilla, fruit cake, booze, sherry, cakey malts. Flavour is raisin and dried fruits. Oily. Palate is semi sweet, oily. Lowish carbonation. Interesting enough.

Maxbier (890) - Maryland, USA - AUG 6, 2015
Medium brown pour with 2 finger tan head. Nutty roasted malt aroma. Roasty nutty, malt, dark cocoa bitterness. Almost like a chocolate nut-brown, very nice.

DCLawyer (2685) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - JUL 7, 2015
Draft at Spacebar. Black with bare lite tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, lite coffee, ash. Taste is similar, with hint of chocolate. Thin, bit watery. Good enough to drink a couple, but not to seek out.

First impressions: rather light for a porter, not as complex as hoped for. However, as it warms a bit and I keep sipping, it's flavors grow, but not to where I'd expect from a 7 malt beer. I detect hints of coffee, a little chocolate, and very subtle smoke on the tongue but surprisingly not on the nose. Overall, a decent porter but less than I'd hoped for. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
