worldbeertaste (1599) - AUSTRIA - MAR 25, 2012
Bottle - Filtered. Caramel brown with a thick quick disappearing tan bubbly head. A bit of a red tint. Smell of sweet malt, toffee and light roast. Medium thin smooth body. Sweet berry and dark fruit start with a dry bitter roast and biscuit finish. Nutty and earthy with a vanilla edge. No way is this a Porter!!! More of a Brown Ale or a Premium Bitter. Not sure what they are talking about calling this a Porter. Some light roast elements. Very smooth and drinkable.

imdownthepub (9961) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 12, 2012
Cask conditioned at Fleetwood Beer Fest ’12. Copper with slight head. Fruity, malty beer, reasonably full with good malt depth, some caramel, some roastiness. It’s ok.

FatPhil (9007) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 27, 2012
UPDATED: FEB 14, 2012 Cask (CWAF2012, Fri)
Quoth Phil: Slightly almondy sweet malts, sticky esters. Finish mellower, but somet mushrooms. A touch of liver later. Drinkable, but missing something (or with baggage). (6:4:6:4:11=3.1)
Quoth Anna: Dark copper. Not much aroma. Tastes stronger than the percentage. Slightly sharp, dark fruit. Sense of alcohol too. (6:4:6:3+:13=3.2)

wyzzywyz22 (1942) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - JAN 12, 2012
Bottle from Carringtons, Chorlton. Clear reddish brown pour with a thin tan head. Roasted malt, milk choc and nuts showed up in the nose. Flavour was sweetish and somewhat similar to the aroma. All a bit thin and lacking body and fizzled out rather limply. Not sure its especially porteresque.

Cask. Clear warm orangey brown with a rough off-white head. Roasted coffeeish aroma. Medium body, flat, very sweet roasted malts, nuts and coffee with a touch of vanilla. Hardly any bitterness. More of a Brown Ale really. 200110

chriso (7347) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 8, 2010
Cask (gravity dispense) at Chelmsford Winter Beer Festival, 4 February 2010. Dark and roast. Quite sweet. Lots of fruit. Maybe a little too sweet for my taste but pretty tasty nonetheless.
