Mar 2012 - Draught at the Ship Richmond - decent and drinkable porter.
Dec 2012 - draught on Fleet St. Tastes like sweet filter coffee or a floater coffee. Quite nice.
Dark black color, decent head, surprised I haven’t reviewed this before. Maybe I’ve never had it? Aroma was malty, decent. Flavor was malty with slight bits of cocoa and coffee as promised by the label. Overall, a decent porter and something I might pick up if the price happened to be right.

Cask at The Antelope, Sloane Sq. It pours very dark brown with a small beige head. The nose is coffee, light roast, caramel and cooking chocolate. The taste is roasted malt, coffee, nut, toast, plain chocolate, touch of dark fruit with a dry, roasty finish. Medium body and soft carbonation. A solid porter, but nothing particularly special. mR_fr0g (13475) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 1, 2013
Cask at the moon under water JDW. Dark ruby red brown small beige head. Big choc dry coffee aroma. Soft coronation and full bodied. Flavour is more choc and coffee. Some earthy hop bitterness in the finish. Nice lingering coffee flavour. Very good porter. sic1314 (4967) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - JAN 12, 2013
Poured dark black with no head. Aroma of dark chocolate malt. Medium body, flavour similar to the aroma with a lingering dry, roasted aftertaste. Possibly a bit on the cold side for all the flavours to develop
