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.

On cask at the Croglin Castle Hotel, Kirkby Stephen. It certainly looks the part, pours black with a tan head. Far too sweet and sickly for a porter, thin and flat. Very disappointed.
