500ml shared back in BE with lunch after Brexit tour of Yorkshire, April 2017. - Full colablack pour, great brown cocoa head. Earthy yet light oldschool ("Victorian") porter, elegantly balancing chocolate roast, coffee grounds, liquorice shavings, ash and crumbled biscuit sweetness. Again an Acorn beer steeped in tradition and place it seems, while subtly crafted to more modern palates. Wish I had seeked out more now...

500ml bottle. In a jug . I got this Yorkshire ale from the welfare store aka Morrisons. The shoppers in there mope around looking suicidal and zombie like ,as they get their crates of Fosters and welfare value toilet paper ... . This caught my eye in the otherwise mundane as ever Morrison’s beer selection . Nose of chocolate malt, roasted malt, coffee, liquorice. Purple and brown coloured beer ,decent khaki head . This drinks with a roasted dry bitterness that I dig...and the vibes mentioned in the nose. A pretty solid .

Butelka 500ml. Czarny kolor. Piana srednia,lekko palona opada dosc szybko. Gleboki aromat kawy i gorzkiej czekolady podparty palonymi slodami. W smaku jak dla mnie zbyt wytrawne. Poczatek bardzo obiecujacy ,jest kawa, czekolada szczypta lukrecji..pozniej pojawia sie nieprzyjemny kwasny posmak.

Bottle from Tesco, Brighouse. Very dark reddish-brown with no head. Has a good aroma with a fair roasted malt here, and whilst it is similar in taste, it’s lesser stated here. Has a very drinkable texture.

Pours well and looks nice in the glass. Burnt malt flavours with liquorice undertones, leaves a lasting impression in the mouth, although with a thin mouthfeel. Easy drinking. Nothing special.

UPDATED: NOV 29, 2015 Bottle from York Beer & Wine. Pours mahogany with a cream head. Nice chocolatey malt aroma. The flavour has lots of chocolate too. Mild spice and a touch of aluminium. Very good over all. 7 4 8 4 14 3.7 Again at Shaun’s place. Pours mahogany with a thin bige head. The aroma is light nutty coffee. The taste is light spice, coffee, nut and a hint of metal.
