Benjii (3049) - 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.

gripweed57 (1792) - 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.

The_Osprey (7731) - 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 - wouldnt come back to this one.

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.

BeardedAvenger (599) - Addlestone, Surrey, ENGLAND - OCT 14, 2016
PoW Beer Fest, Farnborough. A vague aroma, malty. Deep an dark, with a ruby tint. Large bubbles, but unimpressive off-white head. A session porter. Medium sweet and malty. Smooth. Brown sugar.

theprof (830) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAR 21, 2016
Cask. Pours chestnut with speckled flecked top. Aroma yeasty, biscuit malts. Tastes of both hop fruits and malts so well balanced in a way some porters fail to be. Sweet at the front malts in the core and a growing bitterness in the languor So more to this than one might suspect or expect.

Cask at the Wellington; clear mahogany brown pour with a bubbly light tan head, dark fruits and a hint of roast on the aroma, taste has some nuts, dark fruits, a hint of chocolate, ok.
