Lovely rich roast aroma. Black, tight tan head. Fullish palate. Good roasty taste, very mellow. An easy drinker. Finish sweet and cakey, some herbal hops. Good one.
Cask @ Calans, Hebden Bridge, as Colchester London Porter. Dark clear copper-brown with a creamy, slightly off-white head. Has a sweetened roasted malt aroma, which is slightly more stated in its taste. MartinT (9880) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 21, 2016
My Bottom Line:Mr_Pink_152 (5005) - Lincoln, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - JAN 9, 2016
This silky Porter shares chocolate, raisins and roasted cereals alongside leafy hop bitterness and dark berry juices.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam laces around the ruby-tinged dark brown.
-The finish is a blend of roasted malt bitterness, leafy hops and mild fruity acidity.
-That dark berry juice character in the finish gets more and more prominent with every sip.
-Again, malt flavors are quite different in this British Porter than they are in most North American examples.
On cask at The Bridge Inn, Conwy.
Tried at the strugglers inn, Lincoln. Deep almost black colour with a beige head. Aroma is deep roasted malt, taste a touch of fruitiness. Nice enough. jjsint (3094) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - JUL 31, 2015
Cask at the Devonshire Arms, Cambridge. Very dark brown and barely translucent. Flat, no head, no lacing. Coffee and vinegar (ok may not be in the best condition) but the taste makes up for it. A gentle espresso bitterness underpins the Malteaser sweetness. Palate is okay (nice body but again too flat). If this had more life to it the rating would be much higher. Still, decent.

Very mild aroma. Strong back of the throat taste. Looks like cola. With a taste just as syrupy.
