tombyars (1776) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - OCT 17, 2017
Tasted this at the Troon BF on the 6th October 2017. Cask, gravity dispense. Dull black in colour with a thin white head. Malty aroma with notes of roast coffee and grain. Thin oily mouthfeel and good lacing. Dark malts give a short maltloaf base with strong notes of roast malt, dark chocolate and burnt toast. Slight hop prickle from the damp earthy hop resins imparts a light bitterness to the quick aftertaste. Finish is malty but starts to fade towards the end unfortunately with weakening dry notes of instant coffee granules and subtle hints of dark chocolate in the mouth. Appears lighter in body complexity and mouthfeel than the OG suggests but an ok session Porter though.

Tried at the Horse and jockey. Deep brown to black colour with a tan head. Aroma chocolate and roasted malt. Taste light chocolate sweet to roasted bitter. Rich velvety body.

Dark black with dark head. Smells like chocolate. Flavor is predominantly bitter, and rather harsh. Full bodied.

Pours black, small tan head. Aroma is ashes and cocoa. Medium-heavy body. Flavor is just like the aroma, not a bad thing. Bittersweet.

On cask at Barrels Ale House in Berwick upon Tweed - deep red black body off white head. Nose is toasty and roasted malts with coffee there but all is a bit muted. Taste is a bit livelier with a nice finish. Solid oily mouthfeel is the champ with this one though.

This is about as generic and bog-standard a porter as you could find. Which is okay, I like porters, but it’s beers like this that have me using Ratebeer because the chances of me remembering anything about it seem pretty slim.

BlackHaddock (7763) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2015
6th Feb 2015: shared bottle in De Bierboom (Brugge) during a beer exchange. Black body with a ruby hue, lightly tanned head. Roasted maltiness all the way here: the nose had coffee and dark chocolate notes. The taste followed along in the same way, smooth body feel: slight bitterness in the finish, otherwise a semi-sweet malty Porter with plenty going on in the flavours.

beeebon (495) - Cornwall, ENGLAND - SEP 6, 2014
Bottle gifted to me a month or two back, remindded me more of a stout. Very smooth roasted malt, creamy coffee and chocolate and pleasingly bitter on the finish. Delicious!
