[email protected] Drum, London. Deep amber colour, smalll beige head. Aroma is nutty, dark fruity, floral and also some mild herbal and malty notes. Flavour is similar, but has the dark fruits and nuttyness coming in stronger than in the aroma.

omhper (25093) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - DEC 20, 2011
Cask at The Drum, Leyton, London. Hazy chocolate brown. Mid sweet with medium body and rounded mouthfeel. Chocolate aromas spill over into flavour. Mild and pleasant with caramelly malt and fairly low bitterness.

imdownthepub (14546) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 12, 2007
Cask conditioned at The Woolpack, Banbury. Dark toffee with white head. Fruity, full beer, certainly within a mild character, sweetish malt flavours then a hint of hops on the finish which adds a little body. Good beer.

3.6
maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - DEC 11, 2004
Cask conditioned - handpump - Market Porter Borough London (RB London Xmas Crawl 2004). A dark ruby coloured beer with a caramel burnt sugar aroma. The taste is Christmassy with spicy cake and raisins. Quite warming alcohol.

3.2
downender (8657) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 1, 2008
Cask-conditioned at the Kings Arms, Didmarton Gloucs, 30/4/08. Pale chestnut with a slight off-white head. Red fruit and caramel aromas followed by slightly sweet, fruity malt flavours. Some bitterness in the finish which brought balance. A good beer.

DruncanVeasey (8226) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAR 12, 2014
Cask handpull, The Crown, Nuneaton, 11/03/14. Ruby with a bone hued crown. Aroma souring rhubarb and red wine vinous. Dried fruit plum and figgy sweetness lightly puffed with roast. Hints of chocolate yoghurt and nectarine fruit. Decent.

3.4
chriso (7533) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 21, 2004
Deep ruby brown colour. Aroma is spicy and fruity, with a solid malt background. Much the same on the palate, with distinct raisin notes. A sweetish beer. Cask (handpump), Market Porter, London SE1.

Market Porter, Xmas London Crawl. Dark. Sweet. Winter Warmer. Liquid sugar with a little touch of hops bitterness. Lovely.

3.1
DanielBrown (4502) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 24, 2004
Gravity at the Rail Ale Beer Festival, Barrow Roundhouse, Chesterfield. I think the GWR stands for Great Western Real (or something like that). Very dark bitter, no head. Horsey aroma, with some Belgian bun. Spicy, slightly tart beer. Almost hints of balsamic vinegar, with some dark choc. Tasty and broodingly powerful.
