[cask at the Prestoungrange Gothenburg, Prestonpans] Pours very dark brown, pretty much black. Thick white head. Extremely cold serve - Dave told me they pull it through a line that sits in the python with the lager lines. Little aroma as a result, other than the roasty edge. On the taste, once the smoothflow vibe had reduced, it was a very pleasant, dark, roasty porter. Nice dry aftertaste [26012013]

Cask by air pressure at Gothenburg, Prestonpans - black ale, good tan head, chocolate, toffee, coffee aroma and flavour, hint of burnt toast too, cool and refreshing

Bullit (4801) - Buffalo, New York, USA - OCT 23, 2011
Cask @ Alloa Real Ale Festival 2011. Amber colour, off-white head. Nose is light malted and a bit of roastiness. Flaovur is light malted, bit roastiness, caramel light fruits. Slightly sweet finish. Not really a porter, but well done nonetheless and very well drinkable.
