UPDATED: APR 13, 2010 Cask @ 3 Judges. Black colour, short brown head. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate and oats, hint of glue. Flavour of roasted malts, fruity, chocolate. Medium bodied. This is good stuff.
Again cask @ 3 Judges. Long smooth roastiness. Very sessionable. One of the best drinkable porters I’ve had. +.4 wetherel (1888) - Cupertino, California, USA - SEP 2, 2009
OK Craig. Here it is. You are no longer alone in the world of ratings of Deeside beers. Huge thanks for taking me Cloisters to try this. Thanks! Nice grainy flavor, like chewing on roasted barley. A bit of roastiness that blends in well some barley sweetness. Good and easy to drink. fonefan (50669) - VestJylland, DENMARK - SEP 7, 2010

Cask (handpump) @ Cloisters, 26 Brougham St, Edinburgh, Scotland EH3 9JH.
Clear dark black brown color with a average, creamy, good lacing, fully lasting, beige head. Aroma is light heavy malty, roasted, burnt, coffee. Flavor is heavy sweet and bitter with a long duration, chocolate sweet. Body is medium to full, texture is oily - creamy and smooth, carbonation is soft. 
Handpull at SRAF 2012. Deep black brown, thin beige head. Nice chocolatey nose, chocolate milkshake!? Sweet coffee, big liquorice, some milk sugars. Thick viscous mouthfeel, lots of rich dark chocolate, liquorice again, some subtle roasted barley, some light vanilla. Light milk sugars. Soft roasty finish. Very nice.

Cask at SRAF. Pours black, nose is coffee, chocolate, taste is sweet chocolate, coffee, bitter. BeerCast_Rich (1906) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 17, 2011
[cask at SRAF’11] Black beer with a beige head that reduces pretty quickly. Lovely roasty, smoky aromas of burnt malt and damp straw (in a good way). The mouthfeel is also impressive, very smooth and really well-balanced. Long bitter roast finish with again that slight edge of smoke. Excellent stuff  maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - AUG 31, 2010
Cask Conditioned gravity dispense Peterborough BF 2010. A black beer with a lovely bubbly beige head. The aroma is roasty and smoky. Very bitter in the mouth with roasty flavours and a milky texture. A good body and a nice beer. Blairgus (4613) - California, USA - JUN 16, 2011
16 June 2011, tap at SRAF. black and thin. no bubbles, bit of bubbly lacing. neat nose! reminds me of old oyster shells. a bit salty and oysters, some dried twigs. very nice. thin and a tad syrupy, almost flat. tastes of a coffee stout w/ some dried twigs. a really nice stout! a tad sweet and a bitter finish.
