tombyars (1396) - 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 (981) - 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.

mjs (4742) - 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.

pivnizub (8999) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - NOV 9, 2011
Bottle: Unclear, deep amber coloured, small and stable off-white foamy layer, sourish-fruity nose, leathery-toasty aromas underneath; medium bodied, moderate bitter-sweet flavour, not overly dry, quite smooth; slightly lingering malty-toasty and fruity finish, accompanied by a light acidity. Quite well rounded, pleasant Porter........

Pint on hand pump at The White Horse (London). Pleasant enough without being overly challenging. Flavones just a little lacking.
