Light brown rocky head stayed on a near black still body - Looks great!
Dry malty aroma - roasted.
Medium bodied, airy, smooth - feels fluffy on the palate.
Milky sweet & malty to the fore followed by bitter back of coffee, bitter fruit & long tangy finish.
Excellent Porter tombyars (1702) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - MAR 8, 2017
Tasted this in Hollyrood 9A, Edinburgh on the 11th February 2017. Keg dispense. Black ruby in colour with a thin white head. Good malty aroma with sweet molasses on the nose. Thin oily mouthfeel and good lacing. Dark malt complex gives a rich moist maltloaf base with roast grain and dates full in the mouth. Good refreshing hop aftertaste adds a citrus bite of pink grapefruit which adds another pleasant dimension to this Porter? as it reminds me more of a Black IPA in style. Finish is malty with black molasses and dry roast grain still present on the palate. This is a decent Porter, curious now to see the difference in taste on cask though.

UPDATED: JAN 5, 2017 Nera con sottile ed evanescente schiuma marroncina. Al naso bella morbida di tostatura, caffè, cioccolato. Molto beverina manca un pelo di cremosita e corpo. Positiva la nota di malto, cioccolato e nota di liquirizia. Carbonazione medio bassa. LazyPyro (1212) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 1, 2016

Cask and Andrew Usher’s. Dark opaque cola body, medium mocha head with great retention. Aroma of light smokiness, roasted malt, dark chocolate and oak barrel. Taste of roasted malt, rye bread, licorice, hints of coffee and lots of herbs. A tad boozy but still very nice.
