Cask at the Hare and Billet, Blackheath. Dark brown pour with an off-white head. Raisin and chocolate malt aroma. Flavours of dark fruits, coffee, raisin and toffee. Doesn’t have that classic porter taste for me but is still quite a pleasant brew. Good.

Caramel aroma with a pungent fruity tinge. Gorgeous syrupy flavours. Looks like a cola. Very moreish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask@Southampton Arms (said "Winter Dark Ale" in small print beneath the Porter). Deep amber colour, small off-white head. Aroma is fruits, roasted malts, some ashes as well as mild floral hoppyness. Flavour is rather similar in a nice balance. Old school porter meets some rather hoppy stuff.
