worldbeertaste (1608) - AUSTRIA - MAR 12, 2012
Solid black with a thick lasting frothy tan head. Smells of roast, coffee and light chocolate. Medium frothy creamy body. Taste of roast and sweet berry. Some coffee and some sweet malt. Fruity with light roast.

tombyars (1348) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - MAR 12, 2012
First tasted this in the Hogshead, Paisley in November 1996. Cask, handpump dispense. Ruby black in colour with a thin white head. Roast malt present in the long aroma. Creamy texture to the thin mouthfeel and good lacing. Dark malts give a fruit loaf base with molasses, dates and sultanas with coffee and bitter chocolate. Hop prickle present in the short biter aftertaste. Finish is malty with dry vinous flavours mixed with tobacco, liquorice and leather. A cracking porter and well recommended.

Leighton (10512) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 8, 2012
Cask at the London Drinker. Some dusty roast in the nose. Light sweet flavor, moderate roast, faint earth. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Mild roasty dark malt finish, some bittersweet cocoa. It’s pretty average.

Black beauty. Lingering liquorice finish, pleasing on the palate, surprisingly light notes. No coriander

EdKing (1793) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 24, 2012
UPDATED: MAR 2, 2012 Cask in The Victoria, Surbiton. Colour is nice black with good clarity and brown tints when held to light. Almost no head. Nose is caramel, roasted grain and chocolate. Taste is nice black coffee, burnt roasted malt. Good balance and fairly light body for a porter. Touch of stickiness. Nice.

downender (6159) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - FEB 18, 2012
Cask-conditioned at the Highbury Vaults, Bristol 18/02/2012. Near black with a decent, off-white head. Aroma of dark fruits and roasted malts with a touch of caramel sweetness. Flavour had plenty more roastiness with some sweet fruit and gently bitter finish. Good.

grovet (2) - Tunbridge Wells, Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 16, 2012 does not count
Cask guest ale at Grove Tavern, Tunbridge Wells, Kent. A good, dark & tasty porter, easy & clean on the palate with a deep, almost smoky flavour.

harrisoni (13261) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 14, 2012
Cask handpull at Lifeboat Folkestone. First time in this pub and a winner straight off. Youngs London POrter. Good condition. Really good choc touch of burntness. Touch of cigarette smoke. Good malts on finish. Touch of sting on finish. I thought lovely. Good fullness. Impressive. Probably liked it more for being a winner in such a dive of a pub.
