The Black Horse Porter now joins the stable of hearty beers from the White Horse Brewery. Full bodied in taste this dark rich porter has a pleasing balance of roasted grain leaving you with a fruity smooth aftertaste and a slight bitterness of the finest kent hops.

RichardGretton (4653) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 14, 2008
Cask@1st Hinckley Beer Festival, 2008. Black beer with a milky white head. The aroma is lightly roasted, and the flavour is milky and dry. Overall an average porter.

DonMagi (5593) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 10, 2008
Cask at the market porter. Aroma is small roasty character, but lots of chocolate and darker fruits. Taste is seriously chocolaty, with the dark fruit adding some tartness, making iv very drinkable.

Ethereal (2421) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAY 31, 2008
Cask at the Trafalgar with Mes, 25th April 2008. This is a cracking porter. Pours a dark brown with a persistent cream-colour head. The intriguing aroma of tar, TCP, chocolate malt sets things up and then the smoky, tarry malt flavour delivers the punchline on a balanced, smooth, suprisingly light palate. Very good indeed.

A Mes rate: Gravicask at the Trafalgar.
Dark cloudy mahogany with a very good beige head and good condition. Rich cereal and malt aroma with loads of chocolate. Good tarry chocolate malt flavour with a nice light bitterness giveing it really good balance. Very good porter.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 20, 2008
Cask at Wellington Arms, Bedford. Very dark red brown. Faint chocolate aroma. Quite a restrained taste: a little chocolate and sourness, but the overwhelming impression is smooth, drinkable and slightly bitter.

imdownthepub (13390) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 16, 2007
Cask conditioned at Adderbury Beer Fest ’07. Black with red hue, malty beige head. Lovely quaffable porter with a divine, blackberry fruity aroma, I know because as I was serving this the aroma made the juices flow. Deep chocolatey flavour with a autumnal fruitiness, sweetish finish. Great stuff and my beer of this festival.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 3, 2007
Cask@Reading BF. A weak porter. Some light roasted malt notes and some subtle licorice. Finish is sour, and flat, dissapointing.

harrisoni (17352) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAY 12, 2007
UPDATED: JUL 26, 2008 Cask gravity at Reading BF 2007. Very dark brown, thin lasting beige head. Sourish porter, bitter dark choc. There is an oddity to it that gives it character. 3.2/5.0 Re-rate Cask gravity at Kent BF 2008. Black with thin tan head. Chocolatey lovely aroma. Quite full. Some almost rum malt. Very full in mouth, very intense choc. Good finish. Odd, bit of polyfila on the aroma. Really intense though
