Bottled. A chestnut colored beer with an orangey head. The aroma has notes of malt, caramel, over ripe fruits, and some bread. The flavor is sweet with strong notes of over ripe fruits, caramel, and braed, leading to a dry malt finish. Thanks fonefan for sharing.

harrisoni (15809) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 7, 2006
Cask handpull at Chambers Folkestone. Ok so I had 10 minutes before my train so I could only have a very fast half, but this was good. Deep ruby colour with thin beige head. Really pretty fruity with some coffee and bit of choc. Hoppy drying finish. Exceptional dark fruit nose. Vinous in mouth with good warming alcohol. My friend Martin went back the following day and confirmed that it was indeed a cracking porter.

Leighton (15396) - 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.
