COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Running directly past our brewery, The Black Path was an ancient route used to bring produce from Walthamstow to Smithfields in the 18th and 19th centuries. We adapted an original East London Porter recipe to create this rich, roasty brew.

Holmen1 (2762) - Stavanger, NORWAY - DEC 4, 2014
0,5 flaske (bb. 06/14) hjemme: fonteneåpning med tilhørende tårnhøjt skum. Brunsvart. Aroma og smak dominert av ristet brød, bitter sjokolade og kaffe, og med et grønt eple lurende i bakgrunnen. Stor munnfylde for så lav %, og en velbalansert bitterhet i avslutningen. Lang og god, tørr porterettersmak, dette ble en utmerket luke i julekalenderen!

teorn88 (2700) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 3, 2014
Backlog rating. Tap at the brewery tap room, London. It pours a deep brown color with a medium tan head. Aroma is lightly roasted, with notes of espresso, cocoa, vanilla and caramel. Taste is lightly sweet and medium roasty, with notes of espresso, ashes, grains, vanilla, light citrus. Finishes a bit dry and astringent. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Overall, nice porter

Kauge (339) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 30, 2014
Transferring some earlier reviews from my blog to RB. Aprill 2014, joogipood Broadway Marketil (£ 2,69), 50 cl. Süsimust, servades veidi kastanpruuni; kreemikas vaht vähene ja kiirelt kaduma. Aroom on mõõdukalt magus - ploomine-viigimarjane ja tugevalt kohvimõrkjas. Juues jääb esmamulje kuidagi kalk või robustne või emotsioonitu ja otsekohene - ei mingit silutust, viisakust, vaoshoitust. Jook on oma kanges kohvisuses karmilt sirgjooneline, mõjudes alguses isegi ehmatavalt. Porteri kohta üllatavalt vähe kirbe-torkav-hapu, kuigi humalat on tunda päris korralikult, rösti on rohkelt ning mullisustki parasjagu. Selgelt tunda on ka seda, et tegu suht lahja joogiga, st kerge ja libisev, kuigi täidlane ja kleepjas. Järelmaik hapukas-mõrkjas, külma kohvi tunne.

Osprey87 (2022) - WALES - NOV 18, 2014
Cask at The Fitzrovia. A full pint, for a change. Black with a red tinge, small tan head. Aroma is faint molasses. Body is medium, slightly foamy, low carbonation. Taste is light ash, bit of sweet plum, bourbon biscuits, finishes watery with no real bitterness. A bit sweet for my taste - prefer more bitterness. But fine.
