This was all daknoleís fault. Pours a thin coffee color with a trim beige head. Smells malty -- almost sour, actually. Tastes of cherry sucrets and grass. Gross.

Gravity at Newtfest 2016. Deep chestnut with a frothy cream head. Malty chocolate aroma. The taste is quite rich with chocolate, coffee and a little vinous note. A bitter tang in the finish. Pretty good.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at The Bishopsí Mill (JDW), Durham, £1.99/pint.
Black with a thick, cream-coloured head. There are dark malts, chocolate and a little smoke in the aroma. The body is disappointingly thin and watery but the flavours are appealing - a pleasant blend of cocoa, cream, caramel and berries, although I couldnít detect much of the promised port. Okay.

Black beer, brown head. A bit of coffee in the smell, which is pretty dry. Flavourís dry too... a splash of coffee, earthy malt, bitter chocolate and a healthy hit of the port too. Very drinkable.
