2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask in the market porter. Alroudn rating: Black roasty malts, some coffee and small chcolate helps the balance but roasty bitterness dominates mainly. Its not my style, but its not overly offensive for me.

Cask (GBBF 2009) - Black in colour. Slightly hoppy aroma with hints of dried fruit, chocolate and coffee. Slightly hoppy taste with coffee, chocolate and a sour element. Tasty and full bodied.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask@GBBF2009 (thanks cgarvieuk). Black colour, small beigeish brown head. Aroma is roasted malts, liquorice, chocolate, coffee and also some smoked wood. Flavour is quite much the same. All this after a huge wet "blonde/golden ale" tonguekiss from Craig... one of those moments even I lost words after .)

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Opaque black color, steady beige head. Coffeish and a bit sticky aroma. Flavor has coffee, cola, grassy hops. Toasted malty. Drinkable but uninspiring.
