One for the connoisseur! A rich dark, full - bodied old ale like liquid Christmas Pudding.

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.

SilkTork (5557) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - MAY 3, 2004
Bright bottled at Reading Beer Festival. When I tasted this at the festival on Friday it made a deep impression on me, and I can easily see why it won Supreme Champion at the CAMRA Winter Beers Festival. My notes: "Dark, very tangy, sweet, delicious. Wow! Score 4.0 " Sampling it again now I can only echo my thoughts at the time. Each mouthfull seems to bring forward new dark flavours - chocolate, coffee, tobacco. Though dark and warm and gently tangy, nothing is overdone - there is a balanced about everything, and a long slow ride into the lingering, oh so lingering, finish. Red fruits come through - hard to pin down exactly, but with just enough fruit to balance the dark tobacco and peppery spice. An absolute sensation! My beer of the month!

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.

ClubGonzo (5464) - 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! :-)
