Chocolate, burnt crisp biscuit, roast malts and a sour, wild tang. Really different and pretty good. Finish is a little metallic. Good, rich brown head that dissapeared readily (reminded me of pouring soda actually) and little to no lacing.

Way too much champaign carbonation, which is wrong for a porter. The smell is way too sweet as it smells like opening a new can of latex paint. Taste is horribly sour. Totally wrong mouthfeel. I am pouring this out.

Beese (1784) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 28, 2014
Bottle from the Great British Beer Festival 2013. Poured a thick black colour with a dense tan head and some lacing. Aroma of chocolate, blackjack sweets and aniseed. Very aggressive carbonation. Initial flavours of treacle, burnt malt and some spice. Good balance of sweetness on the palate with some burnt sugar, plums and oak.

Grumbo (596) - Suffolk, ENGLAND - DEC 14, 2013
Bottle bought at GBBF 2013 and drunk at home. Dark brown colour with a small tan coloured head. Mild chocolate and caramel aroma, with some slightly sour dark fruit. Quite high in carbonation. A little light in body, and somewhat disappointing really.

rondphoto (2018) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - NOV 25, 2013
Opaque black with a noisy, fizzy 2" head, too carbonated for lace. Taste is bitter chocolate malt that adds earthy dark fruit through the palate on its way to a fizzy, still the same bitter, finish. Long after the finish there’s a nice hop residue left on the tongue. I understand this is 5%. If so, the taste is much bigger than one might expect.

Opaque dark brown - black beer. Small tan head. Palate is airy and crisp. Light dark malts. Sourish fruits - mostly apple! Little paint and glue ester. Dark fruits in the light airy finish. Wonky!
