Benjii (3050) - Edinburgh, - NOV 24, 2011
In bottle as Festive Christmas Porter. Pours a slighty hazy, deep ruby colour with a thin tan head. Yeast, apple seed and alcohol nose. Some roasty malt flavour with apple seed and alcohol again. Moderate carbonation and CO2 prickle. Not my thing.

joe19612 (3138) - camberley, Surrey, ENGLAND - DEC 24, 2017
Bottle. Pours a black colour with a fluffy white head, roast malt aroma, the taste is medium bitterness and fruity with a dry bitter finish.

Festive Christmas Porter. Special Thank's for Karol for buying in Southampton. Mikolaj na etykiecie zadowolony niemal jak ja, bylem pod wrazeniem aromatycznym. Czekolada Catburry, kakao z mlekiem, sporo przyprawionego piernika swiatecznego, lukrecja, odrobina anyzu i pieprzowo chmielowe rozgrzanie przelyka. Ciemne, bardzo, lekko metniste, srednia piana, lecz opada szybko. Posmak swiateczny pozostaje sporo w gardle. Genialny Porter

Towey1989 (3437) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 13, 2017
Cask at The Blue Mugge, Leek. A deep brown colour with a medium beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, dried fruits and slight spice. Taste of roasted malts, dried fruits, some red berries and subtle spice. Light bodied and soft carbonation. A dry, dried fruit and roasted bitterness in the finish. A standard, traditional porter. Roasty and fruity.

gripweed57 (2979) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - APR 14, 2017
From old tasting notes. Clear reddish brown color with a brief tan head. Sweet roasted malt aroma redolent of dark molasses. Light sweet roasted malt flavor has a touch of hop bitterness. Salty notes in middle. Bitter hop finish is dry and spicy. Rather light bodied for a porter. Well balanced and interesting.

HenrikSoegaard (14710) - Randers, DENMARK - MAR 31, 2017

BeerViking (5132) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2017
Cask at the Plough & Harrow JDW, black with a lasting fine crema, nose is dark dried fruit, lightly roasty malt, hint of cocoa, faint red fruit tartness, body is creamy-dry with more lightly tangy fruit and a dry burnt cocoa and coffee bitterness. Very nice - it’s in great condition.

Bottle. Dark brown-red in colour. Very malty; roasty/burnt malts, caramel, chocolate, coffee notes. Fruity; dark fruits, berries. Earthy. Sweet malty with a sour fruity edge. Pronounced dry bitter aftertaste. (2008)

mabuzzer (957) - Hamilton, SCOTLAND - JAN 11, 2017
Cask in JDW @ Stansted. Dark reddish brown with a thin tan head. Chocolate malt aroma, flavour is dried fruit and a little chocolate. Ok

The_Osprey (9721) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 11, 2017
Cask handpull at Hamilton Hall London as ’Burton Bridge Burton Porter’, old school pump clip. Dark brown with a ruby hue to light, foamy light brown head. Aroma is demerara, bready malt, some varnish and creosote. Body is light and smooth with soft carbonation. Taste is quite watery, a little spice and dark breads, light vegetal note, papery finish. Quite watery and simple. Just ok - wouldn’t come back to this one.

BlackHaddock (7961) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JAN 10, 2017
Cask at the Crown Inn, Oakengates on 9th Jan 2017. Dark brown pour with a beige topping. Mild chocolate and roasted malts in both the nose and taste: a bit watery for a Porter to be honest.
