The_Osprey (9160) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 15, 2017
Clear 500ml bottle at home in Blaendulais listening to Krishna Das. As ’Asda Extra Special Whitechapel Porter’, 5.2%, undated, brewed at Shepherd Neame. Pours like cola to form an opaque black beer with a dense creamy brown head that endures permanently and leaves thick lacing. Aroma is bourbon biscuits and chocolate truffles, ashy notes. Smells pretty inviting. Body is smooth with soft carbonation. Taste is a little thin and metallic up front, then some soft toffee and liquorice notes, ashy earthy finish. Not far away from being pretty accomplished. Looks and smells like the real deal and then falls away. Really grows on you though. (6-4-6-4-14=3.4)

Cybion (194) - Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 21, 2017
Bottle, 500 ml. Pours clear dark brown with a large amount of dense but lively tan head. Lots of visible carb, small bubbles. Patchy lacing. Aroma is light, not too bitter cocoa or chocolate with light caramel and a slight hint of roasted malt. Bit of a damp carboard edge, developing into something similar to swimming pool chlorine later, which is a definite negative. Taste is sweet with a heftier caramel, molasses, and a hint of coffee and a more bitter/roasted malt at the back. Body is light, texture is watery as is the finish, which isn’t really suited to this style. No carbonation either. Taste isn’t unpleasant but nothing to write home about

Pours a very deep ruby. Aroma is coffee and chocolate with a light caramel. Taste is mainly coffee with a light chocolate and caramel character, a little bitterness. OK.
