Bottle shared at Garbage Night II - London. Picked up from the Royal Oak. Pours clear, light rd-brown with a frothy tan head. Toasty brown bread in the nose, aged berries, earth. Light-medium sweet flavor with dry, toasted brown bread, mellow bitter earth, dry toffee. Light bodied with average carbonation. Sweet, simple toasty malt finish, some toasty caramel, minimal bitterness. Very basic but drinkable enough.

Bottle at home - 09/09/12.
Dark mahogony brown with a very thin tan head that soon clears to the edge of the glass and forms a thin pond atop.
Lightly roasted malt nose backed up with treacle toffee, grain, a little vanilla and some nuttiness.
Taste matched the nose very well, a real treacle toffee flavour unlike any other I can recall in a porter, reminds me of Thorntons treacle toffee on bonfire night as a kid!!!
Medium bodied, a little thickness in the mouthfeel as you swallow, moderate carbonation with a dry finish.
I enjoyed this, a slightly different take on a porter! harrisoni (18436) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUN 22, 2007
275ml bottle from brewery shop. Black with faint ruby edges, thick tan head. Excellent almost peaty malt aroma. This is thick and unctious. Thick heavy tarry roasted malt aromas. Seriously this beats a lot of porters/stouts and impy stouts with bigger reputations. All the intense flavours, but no ridiculous massive hops on finish. This is awesome. Menthol, eucalyptus. Drank at room temperature on Lewes to Ashford train with the Inspiral Carpets. saxo (18208) - Højbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - OCT 8, 2013
