Bottle from the Hog’s Back Brewery Shop. Ruby coloured ale with a cream head. Quite a fruity one with toffee and a hint of coffee. A very nice strong ale.

Truly this beer is on another planet, fortunately when you drink it you are able to attend this planet and enjoy a full beautiful flavour with an incredibly balanced, full, malty aftertaste.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma was a nice roasty caramel with a little alcohol. Appearance is a brown, somewhat hazy brew, with a white quickly receding head. Taste is definitely on the sweeter side, with a medium sweetness, and some fig-like dark fruit, burn sugar, and an alcohol as well. As far as feel, the body is between medium and full, texture is slick, with an average carbonation, and a long, somewhat boozy feel.
Solid beer. Would enjoy another.

This is very nice. Smell of dark fruits like plums, caramel and toasted malt. Taste initially was rather sweet but the bitterness comes through and there is plenty going on. A fine porter and one I will buy again

Bought in Tesco. Deep copper colour, thin white(ish) head that lasts well. Good nose of dried friuts and a good hit of roast malt. Full bodied, slightly sweet, robust hops coming through on the finish, this is good!

Bardzo dobre rubinowo czerwonawe piwo w angielskim stylu Portera. Piana wysoka i trwala. Karmelowy slod lekka orzechowosc i wisniowa owocowosc. Wytrawnosc niewielka po przelknieciu, w smaku slodkawe ale nie przeslodzone. Dobry porter

Appearance: Dark brown with a two finger thick ivory head.
Aroma: Raisin, prune, caramel, toasty, floral, vinous and notes of banana.
Taste: Low/medium sweetness, medium bitterness and sourness, dried fruit and caramel with a roastyness.
Palate: Smooth full texture, and a medium body and mouthfeel. Average carbonation with a fairly abrupt finish which leads to a caramel end.
Comments: Very enjoyable and easy to drink.

Smells very dark cherry, molasses and roasted sugar. This head, lots of bubble. Very dark cherry red. High carbonation, gorgeous. Very very nicer.

I found this totally delicious. It hit my taste buds in all the right places. Thin mouthfeel and thin body, with very low carbonation and virtually no head. Aroma is toasted cocoa and stewed plums. Flavour is vanilla chocolate at the start with tangy fruit crumble and burnt sugar to follow. Ends with a short medium bitter flourish.
