jamesie1857 (1478) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 25, 2012
On cask at Coach and Horses, Dronfield - a bit light for a porter, easy on the nose and palate, and very drinkable. Missing the usual smoky notes and bitter aftertaste I’d expect, but still one I’d recommend.

DanielBrown (3924) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 1, 2012
Hand pulled at the Gardener’s Rest, Sheffield. Amber colour and good lacing (which seems a feature of the Sheffield beers I’ve supped so far). Sweet coco finish, verging on coffee. Thin in the mouth. Bitterish Porter. Easy drinking.

tombyars (1411) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - NOV 22, 2011
Tasted this porter at the Troon Beer Festival in October 2011. Cask, gravity dispense. Dull black in colour with no head. Strong treacle toffee notes in the long sweet aroma. Thin mouthfeel and no head. Dark malts give a sweet flavour of chocolate fudge, molasses and syrupy dates. Very little hop resins noted in the short aftertaste but sweetness continues into the malty finish with hints of drinking chocolate and toffee. A good session porter but maybe too sweet for some.

Nightfall (1307) - Hamburg, GERMANY - NOV 9, 2011
Cask during RBESG 09 Shefield. Dark Brown color with medium brown head. Roasted malt, toffee caramel, very faint bitterness. Nice and easy to drink.

Cask-conditioned at the Seven Stars, Bristol 7/03/2011. Reddish brown with a slight, off-white head. Sweet, fruity aroma with some roasted malts. Flavour of earthy malts with red berry fruit and a dry finish. Fine.

Ungstrup (29849) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 9, 2011
Cask. A dark amber beer with a lazing off-white head. The aroma is dominated by caramel. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt and caramel, leading to a bitter finish.
