erickok (3193) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - MAY 9, 2012
Poured a minimal head, over a darkish brown body. Barley, bit of caramel. Fresh old world hops give a strange balance in this one. Like the first sip but it’s too thin to really enjoy. Some dryness in the end, but not overly much complexity. Decent carbonation. Nah, not really impressed. (50cl bottle, traded with Leighton)

mjs (4277) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 22, 2011
(Cask at Oliver Twist, 20111116) The beer poured almost black and clear. Its head was small, long lasting and white. Aroma had roasted malts and coffee. Palate was quite full bodied with low carbonation. Flavours were roasted malts, liquorice, saltiness and low bitterness. Aftertaste was roasty and bitter. Good porter - especially I liked the lack of burnt flavour.

decaturstevo (4665) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - MAR 6, 2012
Brown red pour with off white head and lace. Brown sugar and sour malt. Roasted malt, light sugar, caramel, a hinto coffee. A bit thin and fizzy for me.

Cask conditioned handpump North Bar Leeds. A black beer with a decent whitish head and lacing. A tasty smooth bitterish porter. Good chocolatey malts. Aroma has chocolate too. A good body to this nice strong porter.

GBZ59 (988) - BARCELONA (Catalonia), SPAIN - MAY 23, 2012
Botella de 500ml. Vaso Tumbler. Saboreada en abr´12. Color rubí oscuro con tintes marrón rojizo a contraluz. Espuma bronceada de burbuja amplia. Capa fina con algunos collares. En nariz aromas de maltas torrefactas, frutos oscuros, levadura, notas de pan y lúpulos florales. Maltas torrefactas y fruta agria al primer sorbo, matices de caramelo de regaliz con notas de café. Los lúpulos reaccionan y liberan un refrescante amargor que lo inunda todo. Cuerpo medio y carbonatación suave. Paladar afrutado y lúpulizado con sensación aterciopelada. Ligeramente áspera en el intermedio redondeada por una leve astringencia en el final. Frutos oscuros en el retrogusto. Cerveza bien equilibrada: refrescante como una Weizen y sabrosa como una Oatmeal Stout es, sin embargo, una Porter que funciona como una perfecta cerveza para “ir de cañas”. 500ml bottle. Tumbler glass. Enjoyed on apr´12.Deep ruby in color, reddish brown to the light. Tan, large bubbled, froth. Thin crown with some collars left. To the nose roasted malts, dark fruits, yeast, bready notes & floral hops. Roasted malts & sour fruit at first sip, hints of fluid licorice candies & coffee notes. Hops react & liberate a refreshing bitterness all over. Medium body, soft carbonation. Palate is fruity & hoppy with a velvet sensation. Slightly harsh in the middle rounded with slightly astringent finish. Dark fruit on the aftertaste. Well balanced beer: refreshing as a Weizen & flavorful as an Oatmeal Stout but Porter in fact performing as a nice session beer.

TEJA (1215) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JAN 31, 2012

tombyars (1317) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - FEB 26, 2012
First tasted this at the Paisley Beer Festival in April 2007. Cask, gravity dispense. Clear dark mahogany in colour with a thin creamy white head. Soft caramel notes in the short aroma. Creamy smooth mouthfeel and decent lacing. Mixed malts give a fruity maqlt loaf base with juicy raisin dates, sultanas with molasses present. Slight hop prickle present with earthy notes in the short aftertaste. Finish is heavy and malty with vinous fruit and caramel flavours evident in the creamy mouthfeel. An excellent porter but hard to find north of the border.

Mortlach (959) - Rome, ITALY - FEB 2, 2012
13/06/2011 Brasserie 4:20 (cask). Nera, intensa, con riflessi color rubino e miele di castagno, ottima schiuma bianco sporca, morbidissima, abbastanza persistente. Aroma intenso di malti tostati e caffè, con una punta amarognola finale. In bocca è amarognola, moderatamente caffettosa, con intense note di malti tostati. Nel complesso elegante e poco aggressiva, beverina e godibile, ma assolutamente anonima. Corpo medio, consistenza oleosa, carbonazione soft. Porter mediocre.
