theprof (1079) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAR 9, 2016
Cask. Pours dark with ruby lights and thin tan head. Little or no lacing. Aroma of toast and flat coffee. Malty taste with caramel giving way to coffee. Short finish and a thin body. One for the stroll rather than for the future.

tombyars (1724) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - MAY 7, 2014
Tasted this at the Paisley Beer Festival on the 24th April 2014. Cask, gravity dispense. Ruby black in colour with a thin pale buff head. Slight hint of roast malt in the short aroma. Very thin, oily mouthfeel and poor lacing throughout. Dark malts give a soreen fruitloaf base with moist raisin fruit evident. Slight peppery note to the short hop resins in the brief aftertaste. Malt returns in the sweet finish with a dry Ribena like flavour in the mouth. An ok session porter but not as good as Eden Seggie porter though.

Half pint from bar 1 at NWAF, shared with Finn. Deep, rosewood coloured body. Shiny black surface. Aroma of bittersweet malts, hints of anise. Slightly roasted malty taste offset by dark fruity hops. Bitter liquorice to the ending. Easy to drink. Ok porter (Manchester, 24.01.2013).
