Ethereal (2471) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JAN 1, 2009
Cask at the Eastbourne Beer Festival, 9th Oct 2008. Deep brown with a foam line of head. Dark resinous fruit aroma. Rich malty taste with an "oldness" about it. Chocolate flavours manifest after the initial sip. Lovely bittersweet finish. Good stuff, despite the name. Rune (13760) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 18, 2008
Half pint, cask by handpump dispense at Guildford Arms in Edinburgh. Mahogany coloured body with a skinny strip of bubbly foam at the surface. Inviting smell of sweet dark caramel. Liquorice and dark caramel malts in taste mixed with tart fruits. Good stuff, perhaps a bit too sweet [11.11.2008]. bembelembe (219) - Zagreb, CROATIA - DEC 12, 2008
Roasted malt, sweetish but balanced with fine bitterness. Citric fruits, spicy, bits of herbal notes and wood, caramel and chocolate. Even little sour. Muddy deep brown, dark orange body. Medium carbonated. Bitter, spicy and roasted aftertaste. yespr (48931) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - NOV 27, 2008

Bottle. dark copper colour with a dense, creamy yellowish head. Complex chocolate aroma with hints of fruit and spices.

A Mes rate: Gravicask at Ealing Beer Festival.bobinlondon (1297) - Harrow, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 8, 2008
Dark brown with a thin off white head. Good prickly hops, massively fruity malt and some spice and liquorice. Interesting stuff. Good malty and herbacious finish. Enjoyable.
Gravity cask at Ealing beer fest. Dark brown with an off-white head. Smells of good coffee but tastes of liquid chocalate! Good spicy bitter finish. Excellent! wheresthepath (2424) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAY 16, 2008
UPDATED: JUN 14, 2008 [500ml bottle direct from brewery] Relabelled as "WheresThePath Peat Bog Porter" for my brother’s 30th Birthday under the brewery’s superb bottle personalisation service. Slight carbonation, very sweet, lots of malt, an over-riding taste of treacle, some stewed plums, a large dash of coca-cola and a hint of chocolate. A beautiful beer in small quantities, feer it may become rather cloying in larger amounts.
