[cask at the Prestoungrange Gothenburg, Prestonpans] Pours very dark brown, pretty much black. Thick white head. Extremely cold serve - Dave told me they pull it through a line that sits in the python with the lager lines. Little aroma as a result, other than the roasty edge. On the taste, once the smoothflow vibe had reduced, it was a very pleasant, dark, roasty porter. Nice dry aftertaste [26012013]

Bullit (4030) - Burgos, SPAIN - OCT 23, 2011
Cask @ Alloa Real Ale Festival 2011. Amber colour, off-white head. Nose is light malted and a bit of roastiness. Flaovur is light malted, bit roastiness, caramel light fruits. Slightly sweet finish. Not really a porter, but well done nonetheless and very well drinkable.
