Gravity at GBBF 2014. Poured a dark ruby, with a rocky beige head. Aroma of roasted malt, berries and hay. Mid mouth feel. Chewy grain flavours, with some caramel and dominant malt. Finish was light roast, watered down coffee and grass.

jmgreenuk (4361) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 1, 2013
Cask at The Ale House, Colchester. Poured a clear dark brown with a frothy light tan head. The aroma is roasted malt with a little smoke. The flavour is medium to strong bitter with a watery liqourice bitter spicy pepper hop palate with a short bitter finish. Medium bodied with flat carbonation. Nice enough but the bitterness doesn’t suit me. Perhaps they should revisit the hop combination.

essexcalf (172) - Essex, ENGLAND - APR 8, 2012
Cask at The White Hart, Margaretting Tye. Opaque, dark brown porter, with little white head. Fairly malty, slightly choccy, slight spice, but a bit of astringent bitterness. OK, but bit too light/watery.

Leighton (11030) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 8, 2012
Cask at the London Drinker. Pours rich, red-brown with a small, foamy head. Not much in the nose aside from burnt leaves. Flavor is lightly sweet with some earthy bitterness, burnt leaves, faint roast. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Dries out in the finish with some faint roast, more burnt leaves, dark malts, some burnt toast. Just not much going for this one.
