UPDATED: SEP 15, 2017 Tried on keg at Square Chapel Halifax. Good nose, slight stone fruit like plum coming through. Nice head which hangs around. Alcohol balance isn't great with the alcohol sticking at the back of the pallet with some bitterness. blackisle (2758) - Amsterdam IJburg, NETHERLANDS - AUG 12, 2017

Pure silk in a glass. It has a fruity taste and chocolate in there. Quite strong so don’t have too many ( for a disclaimer ;)). Really this is one of two best porters that I have ever had and is certainly worth a try. This is up there for one of the best ales out there.

Hunters. Opaque brown color, small steady beige head. Toasted caramelly aroma. Medium-bodied. Toasted, chocolaty with hints of tobacco. Bitterness in the aftertaste. Decent cask porter.
Cask. Aroma richly malty. Pours dark brown with thin lace. Taste is roasted, toasted caramelized malts that play beautiful off pale malt and hops for the bittersweet effect that has earned this so many accolades. Tide (4211) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 29, 2017
