BeerViking (2292) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 11, 2011
UPDATED: DEC 28, 2011 Cask/gravity at Battersea BF 2011. Pours black edged with brown and a fine clingy beige crema, nose has treacle, demerara, alcohol, a little coffee and a hint of oak, then a big chewy body with a syrupy character perfectly balanced by a dry hoppiness and the alcoholic bite. Dry-roast after taste with more treacle notes. More like a strong Burton than a porter, but excellent either way. Re-rated at the Magpie, this time there’s also a little red fruit noticeable on the nose, plus a hint of fruity tartness on the tongue and a touch of spice in the dry-sweet finish.

Cask at Cask Pub and Kitchen, Pimlico, London. A black coloured pour with a medium beige head. Aroma of dark chocolate, coffee and malt. Tastes of dark chocolate, coffee, roasted malt, dark fruit. A lovely rich, warming porter that I always have when I see it on cask.

TheEpeeist (3272) - Swarthmore, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 9, 2011
660 ml bottle. Dark brown with a fluffy tan cap. Nose is vanilla, dates, rum raisin and mild coffee. Milky medium body with a faint tang but mostly flat. Unlike the rich and malty aroma, the taste is oddly devoid of sweetness. Baker’s chocolate, ash and grass. Finishes earthy with raw potato and licorice. Has a rustic appeal but overall kind of gritty.
