Cask Conditioned at The Pump House, Bristol. Dark brown red with virtually no head. in the early days of Porter the beer was a mix of three others, some London Brewers managed to brew in one barrel, which took a year to mature and became known as Full Butt and eventually Porter from those who drank it. This I doubt is very similar to those soured beers as it is quite smooth an underflavoured, it has got a burnt chocolate malt flavour though whic was the new development with Porters, interesting, but not great.
