duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 2, 2004
UPDATED: OCT 25, 2004 Cask@Chelmsford BF. Caramel and butterscotch to start, subtle roasted malt flavour/chocolate/coffee, slightly lactic acidity. Dry finish, not very convincing, but some interesting flavors in there(3.1). Re-rate: Cask@Twickenham BF. Quite smoky, slight bacon flavour. roasty, rich and quite bitter, a fair amount of coffee, with a winey acidity.

UPDATED: JUL 17, 2016 On tap. Nose a bit on the winy side, smells like old barrel. Heavy and musty aroma. Lots of basement notes in the taste, musty and winy.

ClubGonzo (5407) - Bergen, NORWAY - DEC 9, 2012
Bottle. Another from Moor, how exciting - they have impressed me with their DIPA (English style) before, let’s see how this porter fares. Pours a pitch black body with a medium creamy beige head. Aroma is licorice, coffee, leather, sweet fusel-like fruit esters, caramel and hints of dark berries. Taste is dark berries, chocolate, licorice, leather, hints of cocoa and vanilla. Creamy thick body, medium carbonation. A very nice and smooth English-style porter in the stronger end the spectrum. Moor does it again! :-)

jookos (5401) - FINLAND - NOV 22, 2013
.65 bottle. Dark, I guess black actually and totally flat. Sort of timid nose with slightly plummy malts, musty, a bit spicy. After googling what an english xmas pudding is, I’m pretty sure that does describe it well. full bodied, a bit oily, sweet. Short though. Drinkable and so, but can’t say I find it that interesting, or that I’ll remember it tomorrow.

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 7, 2013
Shared bottle @Christianssand Brygghus. Pours a see-through, very dark brown body. Tall light brown bubble head. Nice aroma. Chocolate and english licorice. Sutle tones of baked apples and yellow fruits. Surprisingly light in body. Chalky texture, yet smooth. Rounded and complex. Dryish cocoa, licorice and toffee. Light plummy. Gently roasted. Fine balancing bitterness. Mild delicate malt-sweetness. A really nice one. [01.12.12]
