prawlie (1150) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 12, 2012
1/3 of a pint on draught at the Great British Beer Festival 2012. Black as night with little head. Super chocolate roast aroma and flavour, although the flavour doesn’t come through as well as the aroma. Plenty of body. Roasty and strong.

10oz pour @ Baileys. Pours clear black, light tan head, spotty lacing. Aroma is roasted toasted malt. Flavor is malt, licorice, hints of chocolate. Sweet and heavy, alcohol isn’t completely hidden, low carbonation. Long lasting aftertaste. Pretty much your standard sell-done porter.

chriso (7365) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 11, 2012
Cask (gravity dispense) at Great British Beer Festival, day 4 on 5 August 2011. Very dark brown, tending towards black, with a modest beige head. Lots of chocolate and burnt malt notes on the nose. More of the same in the flavour, joined by some treacle and a touch of Pontefract cake. Alcohol is quite spirity and hot but there’s enough richness and body to balance things. Maybe a little sweet, borderline sticky.

GBBF. Cask. Opaque brown beer, little tan head. Smooth palate. A little chocolate, marmite and minerals. Alright - still struggling with my palate after that bloody Stone Chipolte Porter!

A little maple sytup in the aroma - portends a sticky, treacly experience. In the mouth indeed it’s a bit sticky. Taste is a little yeasty, a little meaty, certainly some bouillon. Too sweet and sticky, lacking balance.
