harrisoni (15792) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 29, 2006
Draught at Porterhouse, Covent Garden with Yogi Beera, Pivo, ChrisO and Kook. Red/copper with lasting beige head. Some smokey fruit and malt. Some choc. Weird artificial red fruit. Overly carbonated. Cherry dry finsh. Interesting.

Draught at Porterhouse, Covent Garden, London. Clear deep amber beer with a nice lasting beige head. Malty toffee aroma, fruity, grapes, biscuits,roasted notes, some spices. Malty toffee flavor, caramel, raisins, figs, floral, minerals, creamy, some hoppy bitterness. Quite nice with a fruity floral finish.

Oakes (13879) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 18, 2011
Reddish-amber. Rich caramelly nose. Toasty, fresh, with lots of caramel. Body and finish like a New World micro lager, but that’s not a bad thing because it leaves a lot of sugars and caramels for warmth.

chriso (7513) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 31, 2006
On tap at The Porterhouse, Covent Garden. Darkish copper colour. For me, the positives were compromised by intrusive diacetyl on both nose and palate. Some clammy, sweaty, notes in the aroma too. A bit less butterscotch in the flavour, but there’s a rather odd cream soda character to replace it. Gets drier and more fruity on the finish but the damage was done by then.

Keg @ Porterhouse. You don’t run into new viennas every day...The pour’s a deep reddish brown color. Dark indeed! Medium off-white head. The aroma’s fairly faint. Some toast, a bit of nut and caramel. The taste is heavily grainy. Loads of toasted brown bread flavors. Light chocolate, maybe some red fruit. The grain flavors really overpower whatever subtlety may exist in this beer. Medium body, a bit sticky. Overall, not a great effort. Ragged stuff.

Draft @ brewery tap, Temple Bar. Clear copper, not much of any head and becomes flat later. Aroma is a touch buttery and caramel with cookie malt. Soft mouthfeel. The malts are biscuity and mouthfeel is oily. Not as refreshing as advertised but still a well-made brew.

2/2/2007 8:40:37 PM On tap at Porterhouse. Looks like apple juice. Sweet, buttery and eggy taste. Tastes a lot like a Pilsener, really.

Aniela (4195) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAR 13, 2013
Draught at Porterhouse, Covent Garden, London. Dark brown beer with a beige creamy head. Malty, fruity aroma with spicy notes. Sweet, malty, raisins, figs and hoppy flavour.

culchiem (3148) - Berlin, GERMANY - APR 2, 2013

garthicus (2823) - Dublin, IRELAND - JAN 9, 2008
Tap - Porterhouse Central - Dublin; Dark brown colour, small head, nice caramel-toffee aroma with malt in there also. Quite a sweet flavour - definite toffee flavour, with a dry finish, not a bad brew, could potentially drink quite a few in one sitting.
