Cask - The Glass House (JDW), Norwich. Poured with a large, dense light tan head that lasted and laced. Roasted malt aromas, dried fruits and some coffee on the aroma. More roasted, malt, some coffee again, plenty of dark & dried fruits with a dry, roasted malt/hop bitterness on the finish. Medium body, mostly soft in the mouth with a creamy, lingering finish.

UPDATED: AUG 15, 2013 cask @ The King’s Arms. Uppnor Castle. Kent) A strange choice on tap in late june -but it was rather cold of course -thus this winter/summer warmer was fucken fine with me. Its a smoky deep brown colour,kinda beautiful but the head was too subtle for me. I wouldn’t say this beer had too much finesse really , it relies on rich tofee and chocolate vibes -married with booze in a simple but nice paced ale.

Chelmsford Beer Festival 2010. Thanks to Chris O for the recommendation. Frothy, creamy head, dark opaque colour, chocolate, roasted malts, coffee, nutty texture, sweet leathery yeast, wood, maple syrup, vanilla and a full bodied kick with a moderate sweet bitterness element and also a long finish. Enjoyed. A great beer.

Gravity at the Bree Louise, London. Porter-like appearance with a good head. Coffee and dark chocolate in the scent. Well balanced but unusually the sweetness comes before the bitterness. Citrus/lime tinge in the mouth, quite sticky, some berries on the end. A bit too sweet.

Creamy head that dissipates almost straight alway deeply fruity ruby in colour start off quite sweet on the palate but goes onto a biter aftertaste I really enjoyed this but not the best that this brewery produces
