theprof (824) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAR 10, 2017
Tried at the Leicester Beer Festival. Aroma is caramel malts and treacle. Pours brown with ruby lights and a tan top. The taste has more bitterness than I expected but ultimately the roasted malts prevail.

Scopey (14007) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 15, 2016
Cask gravity at Duke of Wellington, Norwich. It pours hazy near black with a bubbly beige head. The aroma is earthy roasted malts, liquorice allsorts, umami and malt loaf. The taste is smooth, toast, liquorice, light ash, mild astringency, dry wood with a drying finish. Medium body and soft carbonation. A fairly ho hum porter. Drinks easy anyhow.

FatPhil (15560) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 15, 2016
Draught (Gallows Bird, Espoo, Real Ale Festival 2016)
Black, small tight head. Very pleasant roasted aroma. Lovely soft palate, maybe a bit watery. Blackcurrant comes out in the nose. Alas just a hint of sourness in the taste, but its not off yet. At times a bit harsh and minerally. Finish beautifully roasty. Ups and downs, but I certainly warmed to it.
