330ml bottle (2 North Parade, Oxford)

Dark red to black, tan head. Nice roast aroma, gentle fruity esters too. Medium full palate, carbonation a little high for a porter, but acceptable. Quite a bitter burntness in the taste, but also quite sweet. Finish has some fresh hopping, which makes it nicely bitter. Pretty decent porter, perhaps just a bit too burnt to be yummy. Is it too black? black! BLACK!!!

sound67 (784) - Offenbach, GERMANY - OCT 14, 2015
[Robin Hood Beer Festival, Nottingham Castle, 2015] - Loose Cannon, Abingdon, Robust British Porter, 5%. Almost black, no head. Sweetish aroma of nuts, toffee, sweet chocolate. Medium body, still watery, mild carnonation. Licorice and roasted malts at the start, sweetish and bitter. Roasted malt is more prominent in the bitter middle, the finish being dry, a mix of coffee and hoppy notes. Aftertaste is wee sweet again, with nuts and vanilla set against roasted malt.

Cask conditioned gravity dispense Banbury BF 2014 09/05/14. A pitch black coloured beer with a grey head. A typical porter with chocolate notes but also a decent fruity hoppiness. A good hoppy finish. Tasty and easy to drink.

imdownthepub (15426) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 9, 2014
Cask conditioned at Banbury Beer Fest ’14. Dark brown with cream head. Quite a sweetish, fruity porter with a moderate liquorice character, hints of coal tar, some sweet plum. There is a decent depth for the abv, it lasts on the palate. Overall a pretty decent beer.
