jjsint (1397) - Ely, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - FEB 4, 2015
Cask at Prince Regent, Cambridge. Dark brown, slightly translucent with a rocky khaki head. Smells of liquorice, molasses, cinnamon. Very nice. Taste has an initial acrid taste that eventually fades, leaving a sweet, malty and slightly spicy finish. A bit more bitterness in the aftertaste. Not bad, especially when - I hate to say it - considering the source. Not brewed to perfection, but brewed to a decent standard of drinkability.

szagi (54) - Warsaw, POLAND - AUG 18, 2014
Bottle. Dark brown with almost no head. Nice, sweet caramel, a little bit of coffee, but you can also clearly smell alcohol. Quite bitter, but in a bad way. Again caramel in taste, alcohol and something chemical - nail polish?? Very average porter, definitely too strong alcohol aroma and terrible chemical taste.

Bottled, 330ml at The Bell, Nottingham. Dark chestnut with a cream head. Full, rich maltiness, dark and roasty, really quite smooth, fruity port wine like and a light dose of alcohol. Really quite enjoyed this on the day.
