Cask at The Green Dragon, Leek (JDW) A deep ruby brown colour with a thin tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, caramel, some burnt toast, slight chocolate and subtle spicy hops. Taste of roasted malts, burnt toast, some caramel, slight chocolate, a little smoke and subtle spicy hops. Medium bodied and soft carbonation. A dry, burnt malt bitterness in the finish. An interesting porter, started quite sweet and ended dry, a decent burnt malt and soft hop combo in this.

At local Spoons. Dark brown with orange highlights. Rich creamy tan head. Some good smooth & earthy toasty bitterness and reasonable length. Structurally sound. Pretty good really and as I kast remember it about 10 years ago.

Cask at The Water House (JDW), Durham, £2.05/pint.
Dark ruby brown beer with a smooth, slightly bubbly cream head. The aroma is pleasant with sweet malt and light caramel and floral tones. The flavour is malt-driven with rich, sweet caramel and toffee, as well as smoky, toasty character and a good, crisp, bitter bite. A real winter warmer.
