tombyars (1400) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - MAR 6, 2012
Tasted this at the Esquire House, Glasgow (JDW) in September 2007. Cask, handpump dispense. Black ruby in colour with a thick creamy buff head. Strong overtones of black coffee and liquorice in the intense aroma. Creamy mouthfeel and good lacing. Dark malts give a thick chocolate malt base with roast coffee beans, plain chocolate and liquorice. Slight prickle of dusty hop resins in the brief aftertaste. Finish is dry with liquorice notes still evident in the mouth. A decent session porter and well recommended.

Cask at White Cross Beer Festival. Jet black with small tan woody head. Tastes of wood and currants with a roasted maltiness. Finish is toasty, dry and a little tasteless.
