Cask (gravity) @ The 17th Reading Beer and Cider Festival 2011, Reading, Berkshire England.
Clear medium to dark brown amber colour with a average to large, frothy, good lacing, mostly lasting, off-white head. Aroma is moderate to heavy malty, roasted, caramel, chocolate, nutty, hazelnuts. Flavor is moderate to heavy sweet and moderate bitter with a average to long duration, smooth, earty - hazelnuts. Body is medium, texture is oily and smooth, carbonation is soft to flat. 
Cask gravity at SIBA BF 2011 South East. I must have got a different batch to Chris as my half had both choc and nuts. Milk choc and earthy nuts. Good dryness on finish. Weird to drink it amongst rugby dicks but hey. Decent dark nutty hoppy bitter chriso (7536) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 26, 2011
Cask (gravity dispense) at Wandswoth Common Beer Festival @ Le Gothique on 25 March 2011. Dark copper colour. Rather murky. Beige head. Didn’t look too great but was quite lively. Rather fruity aroma. Some nutty malt - seemed a little raw. Billed as hazelnut porter. Certainly not a stout-like porter. Not really much like a porter at all. Although I would have mentioned nutty malt (oh, I already did) I can’t say I would have specifically picked up on the hazelnuts. Some bitterness. Quite firm mouthfeel. Didn’t quite hit the spot for me. Clearly hadn’t dropped bright and may have been a bit green. Would re-rate but doubt if I’ll see this again.
