COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask: Regular. Also available brewery conditioned and cold filtered in 500ml bottles.
Hops: Challenger and Goldings.
This fine beer is a blend of a mature old ale with a younger light beer - just as a true Porter should be. The marriage produces an extremely characterful brew which is dark in colour and complex in taste.

Quick a bit more hops than I expected. Good strong flavor, but not as interesting as others.

Bottle; pours dark brown with a thin tan head; aroma of chocolate, dark fruits, and malt; taste is light bittersweet with chocolate, dark fruits, and hints of caramel and coffee; dry finish; not overly complex but smooth and easy to drink

stravale (2258) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - NOV 12, 2014
Bottle from Booths, MediaCityUK [101114]
Very dark caramel brown, clear, frothy white head
Aroma of spicy English hops, some skunk, mellow roast, some dark stone fruits
Taste of caramel, roasted malts, earthy hops, bit spicy, some bitter coffee, lots of twiggy hops, getting a rusty yeast...hmm not liking the flavour of this much
Palate - Soft carb, medium body. Finish quite dry, lingering spicy earthy hops, bitter roast
Overall - Sort of an old ale / porter cross. OK - just not me this beer

Butelka 0,5 l. W aromacie przeważają słody palone. Piana średnio- i drobno pęcherzykowa, jasno beżowa, dość trwała i świetnie oblepiająca szkło. Piwo ma barwę ciemną, brązową i jest klarowne. W smaku, jak w aromacie, słody palone. Jest lekko słodkie a słodycz dobrze zbalansowana lekką goryczką. Ciało średnie. Nasycenie niskie do średniego. Ładna aksamitność. Przyjemny old-fasion porter. Warto spróbować, by poznać protoplastę naszych porterów bałtyckich :-).

Osprey87 (2028) - WALES - OCT 31, 2014
A beer I’ve had a couple of times in bottles before, albeit around 8 years ago. This time it’s from keg at the Jerusalem Tavern. Very dark red or black, small off-white head, full lacing. Aroma is roasty and sweet. Body is medium, foamy, fairly high carbonation. Taste is watery, a little astringent, some plum and prune juice, ash towards the finish. This doesn’t suit keg at all - too cold and overcarbonated.

Brown color , medium beige head. Aroma of roasted grain with earthy notes. Coffee and hint of chocolate in sweet malty taste with delicate roasted bitterness in finish.

i’m surprised this one’s not higher. the body seemed thin at first, but grew on me. Like their cream stout, this beer is ridiculously smooth and actually tasted higher abv than it really is."

eduardovl (942) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
330ml bottle served in a chalice. A: Pours a brown color forming a medium aired and big bubbled yellow head. Retention is low but a thin layer lasts for a long time in the surface. Lots of small spotty lacings are left in the glass. Beautiful beer S: Quite milky with strong notes of dark chocolate. Tons of roasted notes. Notes of coffee. British style flowery hops in the end T: Dark chocolate and roasted malts, mainly. Notes of coffee. Brown bread. Slightly sweet upfront and mild and pleasant bitter end. Again, notes of citrus (British style) hops M: Light watery body. Medium to low carbonation. Roast and bitter aftertaste O: Very drinkable beer. Very smooth and pleasant. Recommended [ BA Review @ 10/21/2012 ]

Bottle, 0.5 l. Dark brown/black colour with small beige head that dissapears in seconds. Low carbonation. Aroma of roasted malts. Taste of coffee and hints of bitter chocolate. A bit sweet at the beginning and bitter at the end. Strong bitter aftertaste. Overall good porter in a really nice bottle.
