500ml bottle - Dark brown, frothy tan head. Nice colour. Roasted grains, bitter-sweet chocolate, cocoa powder. Straightforward, simple, a bit too grainy. Medium to medium/light body, just a bit smoother than balanced. Not bad.

AshtonMcCobb (5893) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 10, 2012
50cl bottle. Pours a muddy chocolate brown with very little head. Nose of raisins, dried malt bread. Taste of malt loaf, very dry raisins. Palate is medium bodied with a tangy middle and a drying finish. Overall, slightly disappointing when you consider it to be a Christmas beer but maybe alright on cask..

DandyLion (518) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 30, 2012
On cask at the Clarendon, Leicester. Very dark brown with off white head. Aroma quite subtle but nice sweet roasty smell. Nice and smooth with subtle taste at first but nice bitter fruit on aftertaste. I like this. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

snzcujo (282) - RUSSIA - NOV 7, 2012
Pours in beautiful dark brown, slightly reddish color with 1cm beige head. Aroma is just slightly roasty, not much to smell. Taste is smooth and mild, mostly reminds me a common pale ale from the same brewery. There are all similar notes - caramel sweets, lolipops and herbs. So the only difference is the slightly roasty aftertaste. Well, it's definitely a good ale, could recommend it, but just have in mind that it wont taste like a common porter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cask at Birmingham Beer Festival 2012. Black. Not much aroma. Lacking flavour too - some sweet malt, some Babybel, some sprouts. Lacking anything interesting.

Cask at the Sussex Arms, Twickenham Green - 15/09/12. Dark mahogony brown with a thin tan head that soon cleared to the edge. Malty nose, a little chocolate and coffee. Taste as nose, a touch of liquorice and dark fruit. Medium bodied, a little on the wet side.
