The_Osprey (6350) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 14, 2016
Cask at Pig’s Ear, Richmond last week. As ’Hop Studio Porter’, vanilla porter. Black with a creamy dense brown head, full lacing. Aroma is milky, bready, yeast, coffee. Body is medium, smooth, soft carbonation. Taste is milky chocolate, metallic, yeast, twiggy, light vanilla. The first sip was quite impressive, but I found this one quite yeasty. Perhaps getting towards the bottom of the cask? Still nice enough.

Cask at the Rose & Crown, Sandhurst. An opaque black pour with a thin cream head; sweet vanilla raoma; rich smooth and grainy in the mouth with a vanilla taste; and a long dry toasty finish. Nicely balanced, the vanilla isn’t overpowering, giving the malts a chance to show through.
