Sample at Borefts Beer Festival 2010. Pours a clear and dark brown beer with a weak head. The aroma is malt and chocolate. The flavor follows the nose closely. The palate is dry with some bitterness. Overall a good beer.

On cask at Marble in Chorley. Coffee, chocolate, vanilla, roasted grain on the nose. Same to taste with a hint of dark fruit like blackberry. Creamy. Dry and coffee-ish in the finish. Lovely porter in my brother’s new "local". Wish it was mine.

Towey1989 (1167) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 21, 2015
Cask at The Earl Grey Inn, Leek. A deep brown colour with a medium beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, coffee, chocolate, marshmallow, slight earth and subtle blackberry. Taste of roasted malts, coffee, chocolate, some marshmallow, slight blackberry, subtle red berries, a little caramel and some woody, earthy tones. Medium bodied and a smooth texture. A smooth, roasted, fruity bitterness in the finish. Started off like a roasty stout but became fruitier and creamier. A nice, smooth porter.

kwik-lime (1575) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 24, 2015
Cask at CASK in Pimlico. Bit too watery of palate, not much chocolate at all although a pleasant coffee taste. Bit too thin all round though, disappointing.
