3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml bottle, pours clear deep red / brown with a small off white head. Aroma has biscuit and caramel malt, dried raisin and cherry, The finish is long and bitter. Body is medium, texture is thin, carbonation soft to average. Reminds me of a Old Peculier style beer, Old Ale, or a Mild, rather than a porter. Very nice though, another good beer from this brewery.

Cask at Rushden Historical Transport Society Club. Light transparent brown with a hint of red. Aroma of chocolate milk and wood shavings. Tiniest hint of smoke. Full and satisfying sweet taste, with a bit of sweet/savoury play on the back of the tongue. Almost like a salt plum taste. I had this at GBBF (pre-RB) a few years ago, but donít remember it being as nice as this. Itís simple but fits together nicely. A bit more like a strong-ish mild than a porter though.

Cask at Y Delyn Wine Bar, Mold. Pours a clear deep red/brown colour with a smooth one finger off-white head. Aroma is fruity and hoppy with a nice malt backbone. Taste is quite sweet, malty, with some slight hops sneaking around the back. Mouthfeel is smooth, with low carbonation. I donít know whether this has been labelled wrong as itís definitely not a porter, but itís delicious nonetheless!

A proper Welsh porter. Lovely brewery with a great presentation. I loved this dark roasty porter with its fine toffee and chocolate character hinting just underneath it all laid down fruits, like a Christmas pudding had traveled by.

Cask at Cloisters. Dark red with ruby highlights. Strange chocolate and plum aroma. Flavour is fruity with more chocolate. Very smooth creamy palate. This is a bit of an oddity - part ESB, part porter.
