Grumbo (1507) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - SEP 27, 2016
Bottle from Gravity Station, Cardiff, and shared at the 3rd Ipswich bottle share. Pours black with a nice looking beige head. Strong aroma of chocolate and plum. Moderate sweetness and bitterness. Medium bodied and oily texture. Soft carbonation. The chilli is a slow burner, quite subtle, works really well with the chocolate. Enjoyed this.

purpledragons (54) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 5, 2016
From a bottle. Pours pretty flat. Opaque. Lovely aroma. Fortunately I do like this style (Porter) and the subtle Chilli is a plus. Great!

The_Osprey (6556) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 16, 2015
Apr 2015 - Keg at Gravity Station, Cardiff. Very dark brown, small foamy brown head doesn’t endure, very full lacing. Aroma is papery, card, chili, a little vinegar sourness. Body is medium to light, smooth, tingly carbonation. Taste has some light roasted malts, soft chili, tomato, some vinegar. This one is just about holding together. It has a strange tartness that you would normally get from a dodgy cask. Maybe that’s the plum but, if so, it’s not improving matters. Nice level of chili.

Towey1989 (1894) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2015
UPDATED: JUL 19, 2015 Gravity at The Liverpool Beer Festival. A hazy deep brown to black colour with a creamy beige head. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, chilli and a hint of dark fruit. Taste of roasted malt and plum initially and then balanced with spicy chilli. Medium bodied and smooth texture. A roasted and warming chilli finish. Surprislingly balanced with malt and spice, nice.

Nilz (503) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - JAN 28, 2015
500ml bottle, from Grunting Growler, Glasgow pop-up shop at The Drake, pours an almost black ale with a tan head. Àroma, treacle, toasted malt. Taste, molasses, caramel and bitter finish. Rather nicely rounded I thought.

DruncanVeasey (8012) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - AUG 30, 2014
Cask, The Crown, Nuneaton. Glossy mahogany haloed with dense yellow-tan. Fine sieved cocoa, well roasted nose with grilled veg suggestions. Fine heady orange fruity hop beneath more bitter cocoa, bell pepper, stirs of Twiglet. A late finishing lick of heat. Underside of mellow plum tang. Decent.

weaselkenievil (1608) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAY 8, 2014
At the Manchester Velodrome Beer Festival 2014. What a day out. Good venue, beer choice was average. Quite enjoyed this. Brown with a beige head. Aroma is roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, hint of smoke. Flavour is similar with a little chilli on the edge with slightly fruity hoppiness. Decent.
