wimpyjoe (3543) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 25, 2014
Fox & Goose Beer Festival, Hebden Bridge. Dark red, no head. Very sweet with plenty of rum notes that are dominant in both aroma and taste.

Aroma: medium caramel malts, some alcohol noticeable. Appearance: brown, hardly any head. Taste: medium to heavy sweet. Palate: some bitters coming up towards the end of the long finish. Overall: very nice Porter. Pint at the GBBF13, London.

Leighton (10512) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 18, 2013
Sampled at GBBF 2013, London - Day 2. Pours clear brown with a light, frothy head. Nose of dark brown bread with touches of rubber and chocolate. Medium sweet flavor with toasted brown bread and mild dark fruits. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Simple finish of toasted malts, brown bread and restrained cocoa. Alright overall.

Pizd (432) - Merseyside, ENGLAND - AUG 17, 2013
(Cask, GBBF 2013): Dark brown in colour, tiny head. Aroma smelt like a cardboard box, wasn’t impressed by that all. The taste redeemed it somewhat with some nice liquorice and coffee flavours. Yet, the aftertaste was cardboard or something similar. Odd one, maybe it was just off.

JorgeLee (1151) - Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 13, 2013
Cask at GBBF 2013. Brownish in colour, not much head. Quite an unusual one this, malty with toffee and caramel. Some bread. Not too much hoppiness. More of a strong ale or an old ale than a modern day porter maybe. Felt a bit anaemic for 6%.

mike_77 (2976) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 28, 2012
Dark brown colour. Aroma a bit smokey, earthy with of course some rum. Flavour of dark fruit, fruit cake, rum. Quite sweet and very strong tasting.

ChrisO ’Night Of The Gaylords’ tasting. Cloudy brown beer. Thick frothy head, biscuit coloured. Light spritzy hops. A little dry but pleasantly hoppy and not too bitter.

Cask at NWAF, 2012. Reddish-brown pour with a beige head. Treacle, toffee and malt aroma. Toffee and sweet malt tang in the flavour. Ok.
