sm89walt (1757) - Northern Beaches, Sydney, AUSTRALIA - SEP 17, 2010
Cask - Cask Pub & Kitchen, London. Poured a very dark, ruddy brown with a negligible bubbly tan head. Milky chocolate, touches of diacetyl and background dry, roasty malt aromas. Plenty of milk chocolate on the tongue and a decent, lasting roasty, coffee, dark choc bitterness. Medium body, soft palate texture and lingering finish.

8th September 2010. Cask Pub & Kitchen. íMeet The Brewerí
Very dark brown beer but it is clear. Tiny tan head. Light semi dry palate. Lots of nice dark flavours without any of them being heavy or bitter. Dark malt, trace of marmite, unsweet chocolate, trace of coffee. Fairly well joined up. Light but somewhat complex porter. Decent.

Bottle, Rake. A little plastered by the time I had this so really apologies for such a lame rate. Great combination of well-balanced roasted malts, great bitterness levels, cream, substantial chocolate, a very biscuity texture in the malt, a little sweet in the malt, very very drinkable, dry roasted finish, an excellent bottle and one Iíd like to have more of. Special thanks to Mes for his persistence with recommending me this obviously excellent brewery.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 4, 2010
Cask, gravity, at Green Man Autumn BF í10, Stamford, Lincolnshire. Dark brown, near black, with a small beige head. Dark malt aroma with suggestions of Marmite toast, marrowbone, and yeasty leather. Actually that gets nowhere near the actual aroma. Taste is fruity with ash and a sharp bitter finish. All thatís missing is chocolate.

DruncanVeasey (7191) - NUNEATON, Top 18, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - SEP 3, 2010
Cask handpull, The Marble Arch, Manchester. Black with ruby tints and a beige halo. Quite a bit of butter on the nose- sorry, burnt toast beneath. Drinks dangerous with good roasted nut and powdery cocoa. Bit thin, hints of Twiglet, ash and butter afters. Not blown away.

Beeronaut (176) - Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - JUL 23, 2010
Bottle. Really tasty stuff, nothing mind blowinf by any extent, but solid, well produced Ale. Pours black/brown with reddy/brown hues up against the light with a goood beige yellow head which receeds to a small but total covering. Aroma is a little lacking in my opinion, itís all there, chocolate, herbal aromas, coal, earth and coffee, but it just seems a little bit subdued - having said this, this is my first bottled UK beer in arouund 6 months, with the exception of a couple of Brewdog experimental beers, which don;t count to me as they are far removed from traditional UK fare. Flavour is nice ad soft, palate is rounded and creamy, lots of coffee, some very dark chocolate, plum and prune like noites, then in to a nice charcoal bitter mids and finish. Not massively chocolatey, more coffe and espresso. All in all a nice start to Marble, as itís my first beer, thouyght perhaps Iím yet to see their genius, itís a very well made silky traditional stout. SO thumbs up. I just want the beer to live up to the hype!

evergreen0199 (2016) - Northwood, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 4, 2010
Cask at The Old Fountain, Old Street, London. A dark brown coloured pour with a small off white head. Roasty, malty aroma. Tastes of coffee, chocolate, rather bitter, roasty. Decent enough porter from Marble.

Ungstrup (29334) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 10, 2010
Cask at Marble Arch. A brown beer with a red shine under a thin tan head. The aroma has notes of sweet and roasted malt as well as lighter notes of soy sauce and chocolate. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of roasted malt, leading to a dry, bitter, and roasted finish. The body is light.

ladnewton (1418) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 8, 2010
Cask at the Hillsborough Hotel, Sheffield on 7th February 2010. Dark brown with an off white head leaving strong lacing. Caramel and roast malt aromas. Bournville bitter chocolate burst along with a few raspberry notes before a bitter, dry finish. Well crafted and never overly sweet.
