3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tasted this in the State Bar, Glasgow on 27th February 2015. Cask, handpump dispense. Black ruby in colour with a thin buff head. Malty aroma with a sweet note of treacle fudge just about evident. Thin oily mouthfeel and good lacing. Dark malt complex gives a decent range of flavours, moist maltloaf base with notes of liquorice, dark chocolate, treacle all present. There is a damp earthy note to the hop resins giving a quick bitter aftertaste. The finish is malty with notes of sweet liquorice, dark chocolate and burnt molasses all in the mouth. Amazing range of flavours for a Porter of only 4.1% - tastes more complex than og suggests. Highly recommended.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Gravity cask at the London Drinker BF 2014. Pours clear, rich brown with a frothy, beige head. The aroma holds lightly burnt malts and leathery dark fruits. Light sweet flavor with earthy bitterness, burn wood, toasted grass, more leathery fruits and dark bread. Medium bodied with fine carbonation; alright condition. Decent balance to finish with more well toated and almost burnt malts, dry and leathery fruits, berries, some chalky cocoa and moderate earthy bitterness. OK overall.
