Half- pint, cask at The Lamb, the classic Young’s pub in Bloomsbury. Very dark body with a deep ruby tint. Tiny off-white head. Aroma of roasted malts, wood and dried fruits. Pretty similar taste profile containing resinous hops, wood, earthy malts and bittersweet, dark chocolate to the ending. Nice (London, 26.11.2012).

Draught at black door in Helsinki. Bit of dark fruit and butter but no strong Aroma. Look like a Pepsi with little bit of lightly tanned head (0,2 inches). Sweet taste, dust and watery cherries is what comes to my mind. A bit of plastic roastiness too... Bit of old bread and sourness... Not pleasant beer! To avoid if you want a nice evening. By definition avoid sambrook’s stuff.

On cask at Greyhound, Hartshill. Pours very dark brown with a red hue, head is tan. Quite sweet for a porter which spoils a very smooth base. Nice enough but could have been much better.

Cask at the Windsor Castle, Kensington. Black with a loose white head. Aromas of blackcurrant and plum, liquorice, slate. Clean bittersweet taste with a hint of sour. There is also a savoury almost smoky note. Notes of liquorice and beechwood. Light and surprisingly refreshing mouthfeel for a porter. Nice.
