3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask at The Earl Grey Inn, Leek. A deep brown colour with a thin off white head. Aroma of toasted malts, tobacco, red berries, a little orange, slight pine and some chocolate. Taste of toasted malts, some chocolate, pine, red berries, subtle orange, maybe a little grapefruit, slight herbal hops and some coffee bitterness. Medium bodied and soft carbonation. A bittersweet, roasted, fruity bitterness in the finish. Only slightly a black IPA, subtle herbal and citrus flavours and not a great deal of porter characteristics to this either. Drinkable though.

Half pint on tap at the Greyfriar in Reading. Doesn’t have much in the way of nice hop notes, and doesn’t cut it as a dark beer.

Draft - Sweet pine and a mellow dark roast. Deep maroon with a rich beige head. Pine and dark roast with a decent sweetness to mellow the bitterness. A bit of tweaking in the roast/pine and this would be remarkable.
