3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: NOV 6, 2013 Cask @ Back of Beyond. Dark ruby, fresh fruity hop aroma. Little head. Fruity light hoppy taste, and a very little bit of coffee underneath. What?s the difference between this aromatic porter and a black IPA? Buggered if I know... But it tastes good... (uprated after more of it at Monks Retreat)

Cask. Aroma decidedly fruity, although maybe they changed the recipe since my nose read more berries than pineapples. Nothing to look at. Muddy waters with white film top. The taste is rich with tropical fruits so maybe the olfactory function finally gone. Some porter drinkers will say the fruit is disproportionate for an ale that is un-plummed. I liked it.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Gravity cask at the Drayman’s Son, Ely. Dark brown and only slightly translucent. Small cream-coloured head. The sweet liquorice, pine needles and lime notes so prevalent in good BIPAs are accompanied here by a menacing malty note. Slightly burnt, which charcoal edges. Sweet taste with bittersweet piney hop in the finish, but underlying it all is that roasted malt. Exceptional balance, and a great beer.

Gravicask (PBF2015, Wednesday) (6+:4:6:4:13=3.3+)
Very nice hoppy fruity aroma. Cherry wood brown, small loose head. Tastes closer to an IPA then a porter. Some slightly earthy aspects, but still a nice soft palate. More a dark hoppy beer than a hoppy dark beer. And as such an odd, but perfectly decent, black IPA.

Gravity at Bardfest 2015. Pours mahogany with a fading beige head. Unexpectadly floral aroma with grapefruit too. The taste is grapefruit before a little chocolate. More a black IPA than a porter for my money and that’s no bad thing. Pretty good, though a touch on the thin side.

Cask at the Express Tavern, dark red with a thin head, malty floral aromas, dry and lightly bitter, with a roasty floral body, hints of liquorice and coffee. More like a roasty mild, maybe.

Cask Pint at Wibbas Down (JDW), Wimbledon, London in Oct 2013 during Spoons Festival - Very Dark Reddish Brown in colour; almost Black. Very Malty; roasty malts, coffee, caramel, some chocolate. Fruity; tropical fruits. Hoppy; aromatic piney hops. Slightly Spicy. Nice malt/fruit/hop balance. Sweet roasty malts meet mildly bitter fruity hops. Hoppy Porter or Black IPA? Liked this. Nice Porter!
