4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Cask @ the brewpub. Very dark, aroma is roast, rich dark sugars like intense muscovado and okinawan black, and maybe a little bit of fruit. Light body is slightly oily, with molassesy character and a bit of barrel char. Complex, flavoursome porter that surely ranks as one of the best in Britain.

Roasted malts on the nose. Its all a little bit burned notes on the palate, there is a hint of fruitiness but i’d have liked a little more.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
500ml bottle at home. Jet black pour, thin tan head. Big aromas of liquorice, chocolate, tar, treacle. Taste has more of the same. Chewy and not entirely pleasant finish. Had a few from this place now, and would like to see a bit more inventiveness.
