Cask at NWAF 2012. Very dark, almost black, with a beige head. Roasty aroma with dark chocolate, dark fruits and a hint of alcohol and spices. Sweet and roasty with a nice and bitter finish. Bitter and slightly citrussy aftertaste. Alcohol is noticable, but quite decent stout. (2013-01-25) brief_smile (110) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - NOV 27, 2012

Drunk at Birmingham Beer Festival. Imperial stout at 6%, think again Acorn. I like Acorns. Life is a journey with many new beginnings. jmgreenuk (9456) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - OCT 21, 2012
Cask at the Kelham Island tavern, Sheffield. Malty aroma with a very bitter liqourice taste. In fact it's very bitter for a porter. That bitterness heads straight to the palate and I can't even begin to describe the aftertaste . The alcohol isn't overpowering either. A nice porter, but not really for a session.
