Cask at the Euston Flyer, Clerkenwell, London. I was quite happy to finally find this on cask even in the summer....aroma packs in molasses, brown sugar, licorice, rye, and chocolate. Still, the roasted malt and chocolate malt balance the flavor beautifully, so there is only a hint of sweetness (a taste similar to port). Such a rich and full-bodied brew this is, but still so drinkable, even while I sweated in that hot pub.

A good Porter, traditional in aroma and flavour. Good for those cold winter nights when you need to feel you have something of substance. Great as an ingredient in Beef & Oyster pie!

(On tap) Black and almost opaque with a vague reddish hue. Creamy, beige head leaving some laces. Lightly burned, malty nose. Rather full body, lightly burned malty flavours with some incredibly delicious almost vinous accents - port - and some accents of dried fruit. Discreet hoppy finish. 160406

Cask handpull at Head of Steam, Euston. For some reason I have found this unbelievably difficult to find on draught this winter. Black beer with beige head. Lots of burnt malts. What is impressive is the mouth feel and the fruit. Velvety/grainy, full, intense flavours. Damsons, plums, prunes. Then a harsh, burnt finish, tempered by choc and more dark fruits. Stunning beer
