cask in one of the McSpoons in Sheffield. very pale for a porter, but true to form in flavour.slight burnt flavour, some degree of slightly sweet caramel, but led by coffee and edged with hazelnut (unsurprisingly). tastes a lot nicer than it sounds!

theres a mild coffee and nut thing going on in the aroma, dark amber coloured body and ive poured it so theres no head. the taste is a bit bitter nut then a quick smooth coffee but mostly some weird metallic taste is ruining it for me.

Cask handpull. Black, small white head. Body is medium, smooth, low carbonation. Taste is thin malt and coffee, some tangy hazelnut, background chocolate. Nice enough and delivers on its promises, but the flavour is a little thin for me.

Bottle as a gift. Pours brown with small head. Aroma of dark chocolate, coffee. Taste of chocolate, nuts, coffee, bit watery but smooth bitterness at the end proves that. Actually I like this ona.

I stumbled upon this beer in one of the Tallinn’s pubs. I ordered Põhjala Põhja Konn - great beer, but once i tasted the Saltaire’s porter ordered by my friend, i couldn’t take my eyes off her glass.

jmgreenuk (4920) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - AUG 8, 2014
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. Poured a clear dark amber with a frothy off white head. The aroma is sweet malt, caramel, coffee, chocolate. The flavour is medium bitter, light sweet with a malt, chocolate hop bitter palate. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Plenty going on here. The sweetness is kept nicely in the background too.

Bottle from Rehills Newcastle. Pours deep brown with thin browny-white head. Relatively thin with strong coffee flavour and hints of hazelnut. Was hoping for a more substantial beer than this

PawelD (239) - Gdańsk, POLAND - JUL 21, 2014
Piwo butelkowe. Aromat kawy i gorzkiej czekolady, nuty karmelkowe. Kolor ciemny bursztyn, klarowny, wysycenie zerowe, piana zerowa. W smaku na pierwszy plan rzuca się słodycz karmelu, potem czuć kawę a na finisz słaby ale wyczuwalny posmak orzechowy. Zdecydowanie za głęboko odfermentowane jak na mój gust, może i nawet lekko wodniste, ale złe też nie jest.

Not what it says on the tin. Poor example of a porter and the taste is watery and artificial. Ruby red colour. Hmmm alrigjt not great.

Thin nut colored porter without toasted flavor, and incredibly weak coffee flavor. No of reports to do.
