Cask at Pub, Leicester; dark brown, thin head; plenty of tangy fruit and toasty malt; good dark beer which slipped down easily (accompanied by some pretty awful fish and chips, sadly!).

Cask conditioned at The Organ Grinder, Nottingham. Black with cream head. Quite a fruity, sharp beer, richly roasted malts but oddly tangy too. Lasting bitterness later on. Decent enough.

500ml bottle - a great looking beer, near black body, thick white head in great condition. Lots of smokiness, chocolate, rich dark fruits, coffee, very nice aroma. Rich mouthfeel, with a taste of dark chocolate, kick of cocoa, afterwards bitter and lasting mocha taste. First one I’ve had from Lincoln Green, and it has made a great impression. Very, very nice.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask, The Salmon, Leicester. Black with a firm beige foam. Aromas are coffee and gritty, dark chocolate with light oatiness. Coal and leather with some smoke. Blackberry fruitiness with hints of lemon. Flavours are dry, rich roast malts with some tart berries. Bittersweet dark chocolate with grapefruit bitterness and some floral, peppery notes. Drier and more bitter on the finish than I expected. A good robust porter.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very dark coffee brown coloured beer with a weak beige head. A distinctly smoky aroma, likened to smoky bacon flavoured crisps! There is also a good dose of malt. Light syrupy mouthfeel. Treacly sweet flavour with the smoky element again and a malty background. The finish is smoky and sweet! Tasted at the Wellington, Birmingham.
