Leighton (11315) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 14, 2013
Bottle on the train to the airport on the way to Rome with sister Nellie. Looks great: a deep brown with a large, frothy beige cap and good lacing. Nose of burnt peanuts, roasted malts, ash. Light sweet flavor with burnt malts, burnt toast and earth, minerals, ash and faint cocoa. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Dry finish, good and bitter, with further roast, more ash and minerals. Perhaps a touch watery at times but overall fair.

Theydon_Bois (9084) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - JUN 19, 2013
Bottle at JF’s, from Sourced Market, 09/06/13. Mid black with a good sized tan head. Nose is big on roast malt, chocolate maltesers, biscuit, mineral notes. Taste comprises light chocolate, hoppy backnote, mineral bite, good roast profile. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, dry roasted finish. A decent first rating from Five Points for myself, a flavourful porter.

Benzai (8530) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - NOV 21, 2013
Bottle shared with Joes and Dutchdrebus @ Dutchdrebus 3000 ratings tasting. Opaque pitch black color, full sized light brown head that lasts for a long time. Aroma is kind of weak, expected it to be stronger: malts, lightly hops, lightly roasty. Taste roasted malts, lots of coffee and bitter. Medium body and carbonation. Quite nice!
