An unusual combination of fruity hoppyness with a dark, malty side. This beer is distinctly difficult to categorise – is it sort of a porter or maybe a mild? You decide!

danlo (3409) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - NOV 30, 2017
500ml bottle. Dark brown colour with a reddish tinge, tan foam head leaving lacing and chocolatey malty aroma. Taste is sweetish, roast malty, earthy smokey, chocolate, with dark fruits and tangy bitterness. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, dry roasty mild bitter finish. Quite drinkable.

Bottle @ Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. Nice head with good duration. Color is brown. Aroma and taste are caramel, chocolate, fruits and hops.

PMgep (297) - Lund, SWEDEN - JUN 27, 2017
Old transferred rating. Mild porter is a good description I guess. You could drink a few.

MrTipple (7282) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 18, 2016
Toasted malts, dark grain malts, light earthy, fruity. Clear, dark brown, small, frothy, off-white head. Light bitter. Grain and light bread malts, lightly toasted malts, a touch of chocolate and coffee, flat carbonation. OK Porter, not quite typical, yet not bad. Cask at CASK Pub & Kitchen, Pimlico.

Rune (14045) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAR 20, 2016
Cask, half-pint at Organ Grinder in Nottingham. Solid lacing from a stable fawn-coloured head. Red-brown coloured body. Smell of chocolate and mild caramel. Slightly roasted flavours of black and brown malts. Hints of malty bitterness towards the ending. Quite alright (shared with Finn 20.02.2016).

Finn (8535) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAR 4, 2016
Fra fat på Organ Grinder i Nottingham 20 Feb 16. Delt med Rune. Ultramørk amber. Lavt litt tett skum med farge. Tett teppelacing. Spor av bær i aromaen. Smaken er plommer. Litt kjedelig.

Svesse (9124) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - JAN 21, 2016
(Cask at Craft Beer Co Islington, London, 25 Nov 2015) Dark reddish brown colour with dense, beige head. Malty, fruity nose with red fruit, caramel and chocolate. Malty, fruity taste with notes of caramel, red fruit, orange peel and a balanced citric bitterness in the finish. Medium body, with a touch of sweetness. Tasty and well balanced. Nice one.

SilverfoX (879) - Norfolk, ENGLAND - NOV 9, 2015
licorice aroma, looks like cola with a frothy tan head, thin fizzy dry licorice flavour. revolting
