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.

A Mes rate. Gravicask at Chelmsford Winter Beer Festival. Black / mahogany colour, almost opaque, no head. Dark fruity malt and tea with some slight roasty notes and a very nutty finish. Slight alcohol notes. Rather bland and boring.
