Cask at the Maypole, Cambridge. Dark reddish brown pour with a glass hugging head. Not a lot of life. Lovely rich malty fruit bitter flavour. This beer has everything. It's probably not really a porter. It's much more than that! madmitch76 (24807) - , Essex, ENGLAND - JUN 13, 2012

Kings Head, Norwich. Clear dark brown beer. Semi dry palate. No real head. Sweet orange makes a brief appearance but then it’s very nutty with a little milk chocolate and a traces of coffee, chicory and red fruits. A light but very tasty porter.

Cask, handpull at Far From the Madding Crowd, Oxford 08.01.11 Pours dark brown, creamy, nutty and roasty but very smooth and very drinkable, some light chocolate touches, damn good beer. A7 A4 T8 P4 Ov15 3.8 imdownthepub (14557) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 8, 2011
Cask conditioned at Far From the Madding Crowd, Oxford. Virtually black with cream head. Quite a fruity, slightly sweet Porter, a touch of strawberry in the background. then a roasty, husky note giving a little bitterness and depth, there is some tartness in the fruity element and finishes with an earthy character. Pretty reasonable. maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - NOV 20, 2010
UPDATED: MAR 22, 2011 Cask Conditioned handpump Wig & Pen Northampton. A very dark brown beer with a ruby hue and a whitish head and lacing. Good creamy coffee in the mouth with roasted malts. The aroma is thin but the malty flavours include good bitterness in additon to the coffee. A noted lack of chocolate. Score 3.6sm89walt (2065) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JAN 3, 2010

Cask - The Fat Cat, Norwich. Pours a very ruddy ruby with marginally lighter edges. Atop sits a bubbly, doming but short beige head. Dark roasted, chocolatey malt aromas with lighter notes of coffee. On the tongue, more roastiness and bitter chocolate with a touch of dark tobacco, a mild smokiness and a dry, lingering semi-sweet bitter finish. Great, soft palate with just a touch of carbonation on a medium body. DruncanVeasey (8226) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JAN 4, 2009
UPDATED: JAN 6, 2009 Cask, Swan and Rushes Winter Fest. Headless pitch wafting with coal smoke. Dusty choc, espresso and smoke. Solid, sulphurous, nicely burnt porter. Too much for Nav.
