Cask, Philarmonic, Liverpool. Dark brown looks with a small off-white head. Roasted malt and chocolate notes in the nose. Malt driven flavour with some slight fruity notes. Drinkable but a tad thin and underwhelming.

On draught at the Green Dragon in Beverley. Black with a dark brown creamy head. Light roast, with a hint of raisin. Light chocolate malt aroma, with a hint of fruit. Palatable but lacks a little something.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask conditioned handpump Coal Hole London 28/02/13. A dark ruby coloured beer with an off-white head. A fruity malty porter. Some chocolate and lightly roasted malts. The maltiness is good. Almost a Winter warmer rather than a porter. Bready flavours. Tasty.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask (Mitre, Cambridge)
Very dark and ruddy brown. Sparkler head. Coffee-like roast aroma. Smooth in the mouth, and not feeling so roasted. Full in the mouth. English hops and a bit of roast and touch of apple in the finish. Ends grainy. Slightly acidic burntness in the finish. Better as it warms and fills out. Unusually, only had by Anna.
