3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark reddish brown colour with firm light brown head. Smell of roasted coffee and barley malts, with some caramel notes. Taste is similar with low carbonation and medium bitterness, little sweet/hoppy finish, but in comparison with bottle somehow watery. But still great porter.

Cask. Amagerbro Ølfest. No head. Pitch black body. Mild coffee liquorice roasted malt caramel aroma and flawoer. Low carbonation. Long sweet finish. Lovely smooth, creamy and pretty tasty for a beer with such low alcohol contents.

Sample from cask, Amagerbro Beerfestival 2015. Pitch black with tanned bubbles around the edge of the glass. Sweet, roasted aroma with caramel, chocolate, coffee, roasted and fruity notes. Taste is sweet/roasted. Very delicious. Medium body with a smooth, silky mouth feel. Correct temperature and carbonation. Long lasting roasted finish with coffee and chocolate. Excellent, smooth Porter. Only my second rating of a cask ale - much seek this out more.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Handpull@Grove Huddersfield. 2.90 a pint. Wanted to try this one for a while. Nice porter with a bonfire toffee treacle taste followed by hoppy roastiness with a small creamy mellowness. Bitterness on the end that tastes like raw instant coffee. Distinct ’porter taste’ that I can’t put my finger on, kind of roast dry umami at the back of the tongue. Bit lighter bodied than I expected. Flavours really improved as beer warmed - initially served cool from cellar. Rare treat this one.

Backlog. Fuller’s beers are always iconic and the cask-version of london porter should stand as an example to all other beers in this category.

NWAF 25 Jan 13. Ekstremt mørkebrun / svart. Lavt film-skum. Innholdsrik aroma. Svisker. Mørke plommer. Smaken er tunge, mørke frukter. Litt sherrypreg. Antydning til røyk som et bakteppe. Tørr avslutning.

Cask at the Basketmaker’s Arms, Brighton on 16th September 2013. Black with brown disappearing foam and no lacing. Roast malt aromas. Complex malt in mouth with coffee and caramel. Sweetish roast caramel finish, rather short duration. Fair body and smooth yet engaging mouthfeel.
