Loose head. Some nice roast but rather predictable on the nose. Very tingly and bitter. I quite like it for the drinkabilty. Something of a dark IPA to it. Green and tingly.

DonMagi (5593) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 4, 2009
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@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 .)
