A traditional, robust and satisfying Porter. This fine porter uses the best quality ingredients including rolled oats to produce a smooth, rich and dark creamy drink.

On cask at Barrels Ale House in Berwick upon Tweed - deep red black body off white head. Nose is toasty and roasted malts with coffee there but all is a bit muted. Taste is a bit livelier with a nice finish. Solid oily mouthfeel is the champ with this one though.

This is about as generic and bog-standard a porter as you could find. Which is okay, I like porters, but it’s beers like this that have me using Ratebeer because the chances of me remembering anything about it seem pretty slim.

6th Feb 2015: shared bottle in De Bierboom (Brugge) during a beer exchange. Black body with a ruby hue, lightly tanned head. Roasted maltiness all the way here: the nose had coffee and dark chocolate notes. The taste followed along in the same way, smooth body feel: slight bitterness in the finish, otherwise a semi-sweet malty Porter with plenty going on in the flavours.

Bottle gifted to me a month or two back, remindded me more of a stout. Very smooth roasted malt, creamy coffee and chocolate and pleasingly bitter on the finish. Delicious!

JorgeLee (1677) - Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2012
Cask in The Bow Bar, Edinburgh. Dark blackish brown, thick white head. Quite a stout porter, combining deep roasty malts, a silky smoothness and a moderately bitter finish. Full mouthfeel. A little sweet initially, becoming drier in the finish. An enjoyable complex beer.

Martin243 (1000) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JUN 16, 2012
Pint bottle served below room temperature in a shaker, Dark brown, dense cafe-au-lait head. Roasty mocha aroma and flavour. Malty biscuit flavour. Full bodied, chewy, dry finish. Wouldn’t be disappointed to find it on tap. Nice, tasty beer.

worldbeertaste (1793) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 8, 2012
Silid black with a creamy lasting tan head. Smells of soft roast, coffee and chocolate. Smooth full creamy body. Taste of chocolate roadt and sweet malt. Very smooth delicious but unfortunatly a little bitter rot on the finish.

Cask at The Bow Bar. Dark brown black with creamy brown head. Chocolate and coffee on the flavour with a bitter coffee rind finish. Quite good.
