Scopey (11954) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 25, 2016
Cask at the Lord Nelson Inn, Brighton. It pours darkest ruby, near black with a thick light tan head. The aroma is rich roast, coffee grounds, earth, light smoke, tobacco, leather, cacao nibs and spice. The taste is rich roast, bitter - sweet, toast, coffee grounds, liquorice, dark fruits, touch of acidity and dull smoke with a dry, roasted finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Great condition. A pretty good cask porter.

EdKing (2357) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 19, 2016
Cask pint in Royal Oak, Borough. Pours opaque black with dark brown and reddish tinges. Off white/ beige light thin foam head. Nose is the Harvey’s house yeast aroma of fruit, rhubarb, mushroom, menthol, and then dark malts, roasted malt, black coffee, dark chocolate. Taste is nice combination of the Harvey’s fruity yeast and dark and roasted malt, dark chocolate, black coffee, bit of menthol. Finish is a lingering dry and burnt malts on the back of the tongue. Body is quite full.

Cask (backlog). Very deep brown colour, close to black, with a small beige head. Aroma is roasted malts, some ashes, toffee and a slight sharp edge to it. Flavour is roasted malts, ashes, some mild bitterness and that’s about it. Not all too exciting.

Tap at Charlie’s Bar, Copenhagen. Poured a dark mahogany with a round bubbly light tan head. The aroma is dry dusty roasted malt. The flavour is light bitter with a watery light hop roasted malt palate. Light bodied with flat carbonation. Too light for a porter and lacks flavour.
