prawlie (1546) - East Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 19, 2017
Cask at the Nags Head in Sunningdale. Very dry and tangy and to be honest it tasted a bit like one of my early home brew kit efforts. Dry and plain, with notes of chocolate, bitterness and roasted malt. Very ordinary.

The taste is rich roast, bitter - sweet, toast, coffee grounds, liquorice, dark fruits, touch of acidity and dull smoke with a dry, roasted finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Great condition. A pretty good cask porter.

EdKing (2504) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 19, 2016
Cask pint in Royal Oak, Borough. Pours opaque black with dark brown and reddish tinges. Off white/ beige light thin foam head. Nose is the Harveys house yeast aroma of fruit, rhubarb, mushroom, menthol, and then dark malts, roasted malt, black coffee, dark chocolate. Taste is nice combination of the Harveys fruity yeast and dark and roasted malt, dark chocolate, black coffee, bit of menthol. Finish is a lingering dry and burnt malts on the back of the tongue. Body is quite full.
