Bottle shared at chriso’s pre-Christmas tasting. Pours clear brown with a creamy beige head. The nose has a lot of milk chocolate, mild roast, dark fruits. Light-medium sweet flavor with a bit of char roast, some smoke, dusty cocoa, earth. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Dry and fairly bitter to finish with bittersweet cocoa, moderate roast, further earth. Not bad.

On cask at the Guildford Arms. Appearance - opaque brown to black with a lovely fawn head. Nose - dark chocolate with an edge of liquorice or even charcoal. Taste - dark chocolate confirmed but less of the drier notes from the nose. Palate - medium bodied with a creamy texture and a fairly good finish. Overall - yeah an enjoyable porter.

Gravity at St Albans Beer Festival 2014. Poured black, with a dense beige head. Aroma of roasted malt, liquorice and straw. Full mouth feel. Aniseed in the flavour, with some burnt toast and smooth dark malt. Finish was burnt malt, some coffee and cocoa.

Fluxing (433) - POLAND - SEP 11, 2014
Kolor czarny, calkowicie nieprzejrzyste. Piana niska, szybko opada prawie do zera i nie oblepia szkla. W aromacie intensywna kawa i palonosc, dalej czekolada, karmel, migdaly, minimalny angielski chmiel. W smaku bardzo mocno palone, palonosc praktycznie calkowicie dominuje smak, z tylu niesmialo przebija lekki karmel i minimalne rodzynki, przez to jest bardzo jednowymiarowe, co w polaczeniu z podwyzszona kwasnoscia sprawia, ze jest meczace. W odczuciu wytrawne i lekkie, ale jednoczesnie lekko oleiste. Goryczka wysoka, bardzo palona, tylko minimalnie ziolowa, chmielowa. Finisz palono-kwasno-alkoholowy, nie do konca przyjemny. Jestem fanem bardzo palonych piw, ale jezeli jest to skontrowane odpowiednia slodowoscia lub intensywnym aromatem chmielowym, tutaj tego nie ma.

Bottle from Rheged, Penrith. This black beer pours with a thin tan head, it has rich chocolate and smoked flavours with a roasted, nutty coffee finish. Very full-flavoured considering its relatively low ABV.
