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.

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.

Cask at Birmingham Beer Festival 2012. Black. Not much aroma. Lacking flavour too - some sweet malt, some Babybel, some sprouts. Lacking anything interesting. Theydon_Bois (20450) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - SEP 16, 2012
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. sic1314 (4775) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - SEP 1, 2012
Very dark brown pour, aroma of fruit and chocolate. Flavour of milk chocolate and coffee, full bodyfeel. Ends with a fruity bitter aftertaste.

Bottled @ home. Brown color, medium frothy brown head. Aroma of chocolat, bit fruity. Bit bitter taste, bit sweet, hint of sourness. Slight sticky on the palate. Average brew. Pudding (266) - Birmingham, West Midlands, ENGLAND - FEB 12, 2012
500ml bottle. Disappointed in this. Low flavour and watery mouthfeel. Slight sulphury taste the only redeeming factor. Preferred Bramble Stout by the same brewery.
