Oakes (12552) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 5, 2014
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.

AshtonMcCobb (2549) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 20, 2014
On tap at the Malt Shovel Appearance - opaque black with a nice crema head. Perhaps a chink of red in the corner. Nose - coffee and cream. Taste - big coffee and cream again. Also dark chocolate. Palate - medium bodied with a creamy texture and a fairly fresh finish. Overall - yep a well executed stout.
