Deep mahogany body with garnet highlights under a thin head of off-white that fades quickly. Slight malt aroma. Thin bodied; little in the way of flavor here.

planky84 (2103) - , Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 27, 2011
Bottle from Mr Lawrence Wine Merchants, Brockley. Dark brown pour with a beige head. Smoky nose with coffee and some dark chocolate. Chocolate, coffee and light smoke flavours. Dry, bitter finish.

Beersiveknown (2876) - NORTHERN IRELAND - MAY 19, 2011
A lively dark brown beer with thick pillowy cream head and a tantalising aroma of coffee grounds, forest floors, aniseed and burnt caramel. The latter comes to the fore in the body of the beer, which is thick and creamy. A brief bitter spike follows and the beer mellows into coffee and chocolate leaving a lasting chocolate and malty note. Just how I like my porters. The bottle conditioning keeps it in fine fettle. Id happily sup this beer in bottle form again and hope I am fortunate enough to come across a cask version.

Scopey (6713) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 6, 2011
Bottle from a Kentish friend. It pours dark ruby with low carbonation and a large foamy beige head. The nose is cocoa, liquorice, coffee, farmyard and cheese. The taste is liquorice, milk chocolate, caramel, burnt sugar, smokey, rich-roast coffee, charcoal and vanilla with a dry, burnt-bitter finish. A decent, drinkable porter.

evergreen0199 (2004) - Northwood, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 27, 2011
Cask at Cask Pub and Kitchen, Pimlico, London last month. A dark ruby coloured pour with a medium head. Aroma of dark fruit. Tastes roasty, malty, hint of coffee, caramel. My first Gadds beer, pretty decent stuff.

ReAle (120) - Rome, ITALY - FEB 26, 2011
UPDATED: MAR 7, 2011 Draught @Brasserie 4:20 (Rome) - Dark red/brown appearance. Taste is fruited with a bit of caramel. Flavor is quite sweet with a light bitterness in the end. Low body, low carbonation, flat, quite watery. So so...

Leighton (10772) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 23, 2011
Cask at the Evening Star, Brighton. Pours a deep red with a light, beige head. Has some ripe fruits on the nose with a bit of caramel. Flavor is lightly sweet with dark and dank ripe fruits, some mild, toasty malts, and herbal bitters. Medium in body with fine carbonation. Lightly warming finish with very herbal, tea-bag hops, and some mild caramel and fruits, but not too sweet. Pretty alright.

lithy (2996) - Capital of Appalachia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 21, 2011
Apparently I had to rate a beer from this county in England. Brown-red, tan cover. Aroma is fruity, berry, caramel. Taste is sweet, lots of berries, caramel, ugly finish.

Suttree (5130) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 20, 2011
Black, thin ring of beige foam. Smells like cherry and oak, mixed a bit of coffee. Flavor is pretty much the same, but less so. I get some coffee, cherry and oak (again), but its a bit on the bland side. Thanks to grownfool for bringing this one!
