Really nice, balanced stout. Tasty with a fantastic palate. Could drink and drink and drink!

Called Mr. George’s Ruby Porter here in the States. To me, I’m finding this a pretty good Porter.
I poured this into a pint glass as respected.
The appearance was a nice dark brown close to black color with a one finger white foamy head that quickly dies to barely nothing. Lacing is nowhere to be found,
The smell makes up for the look as there’s a nice roasty yet somewhat dark fruity/mostly plum-like aroma overcoming some slight sweet malts that try to come through.
The taste was mainly sweet and roasty with a nice leading dry roasty aftertaste that ends up leading to a semi-decent dry finish.
On the palate, this one sits about a light to medium on the body with a semi-decent sessionability trying to run about it and end up leading to a fairly decent carbonation somewhat good for the style.
Overall, this was a good English Porter and for the most part nothing to be reckoned with since this is from England. Good job to anyone who really wants to say this is crap as this is pretty much the standard for an absolutely stellar English Porter that no real beer person can really argue with. This is the standard! davidm (2081) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - DEC 15, 2011
Bottle 500ml. Great malty porter from King&Godfree. Aromas chocolate, port, and cola. Taste is sweet, with light bitterness, and long length. Palate is oily, and medium bodied. Black, with a frothy head. willt23 (4) - Saltburn, ENGLAND - MAR 3, 2014 does not count
Very nice dark beer. Nice body, plenty of flavour. Would defiantly have again. Bought from Morrisons, Lal (1) - Durham, ENGLAND - AUG 18, 2012 does not count
500ml bottle. Dark brown with beige frothy head. A dark malty aroma with burnt / bitter hoppiness. A slightly tart bitter taste which gives this beer real bite. A most enjoyable experience and one to be repeated

Very dark brown to black with a moderate tan head which falls to a thin layer. rich chocolatey malty aroma. Full body, not at all cloying or challenging to drink. Nicely balanced with a dry hoppy finish. would make for a great session. johndoughty (5606) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAR 15, 2005
This beer celebrates the activities of Black Tom a valiant knight who fought at the battle of Wincerby in 1643. My history knowledge is not that brilliant but what but what I do know isa supeb dark beer.First impressions are of a deep roasted flavour with a strong hint of citrus. After that complex flavours swirl around making this a very pleasant beer to drink.
