Keg tap at Cambridge Brew House. Very dark brown, but a little bit of light gets through. Some tan head and lots of lacing. Slight chocolate and latte overtones in the aroma, with a surprising dose of vinegar. taste is sweet and chocolatey but without much depth. Medium short finish, a touch of chocolate malt and fruity hop in the aftertaste. Too cold to fully appreciate the silky mouthfeel. This would be better in cask (in good cask condition of course).

0.5l bottle from lot 331. A gift from my kind girlfriend this one! Pours a dark deep dark amber ruby colored body with a huge really fluffy almost cloudy off-white lacing head on top. On the nose this is somewhat mild, but I get traces of nice mild milk chocolate and a faint roasted element in the back. Some dark sweetness also detected here. A faint but pleasant acidity, like coffee acidity also. I like. Tastes quite decent also I have to say. Lots of chocolate and coffee tones here. It’s not directly roasted but it has a dark malty element all the way. In the mouth it’s really gliding and almost a little slick while it’s soft on the bubbles. Yeah, it’s really lightdrinkable this. Some traces of dark cardboard all the way in the back but it’s not disturbing. I actually quite enjoyed this one. 30.08.2014 ferit (180) - Schleswig-Holstein, GERMANY - AUG 26, 2014
Weinig geur, iets van chocolade. Waterig, Ligt. Ik had wat meer verwacht. Alles zit er wel in Chocolade en koffie maar het is allemaal erg aan de ligt kant. Ik heb hem helaas niet heel erg koud gedronken maar deze Porter moet je volgens mij erg koud drinken. De fles is erg groot dus je kan gerust lekker doordrinken. chrisv10 (18599) - DENMARK - AUG 20, 2014

Bottle. Smells of lightly roasted malt, coffee, some smoke. Taste is very thin, faint malt and a bit of spice, dry airy finish. Frothy light body. Nice aroma but taste and palate are too frothy/thin. Vighals (4500) - SÃ¸rumsand, NORWAY - JUN 27, 2014
