UPDATED: JUL 17, 2016 On tap. Nose a bit on the winy side, smells like old barrel. Heavy and musty aroma. Lots of basement notes in the taste, musty and winy.

Bright bottled at Reading Beer Festival. When I tasted this at the festival on Friday it made a deep impression on me, and I can easily see why it won Supreme Champion at the CAMRA Winter Beers Festival. My notes: "Dark, very tangy, sweet, delicious. Wow! Score 4.0 " Sampling it again now I can only echo my thoughts at the time. Each mouthfull seems to bring forward new dark flavours - chocolate, coffee, tobacco. Though dark and warm and gently tangy, nothing is overdone - there is a balanced about everything, and a long slow ride into the lingering, oh so lingering, finish. Red fruits come through - hard to pin down exactly, but with just enough fruit to balance the dark tobacco and peppery spice. An absolute sensation! My beer of the month!

Bottle. Another from Moor, how exciting - they have impressed me with their DIPA (English style) before, lets see how this porter fares. Pours a pitch black body with a medium creamy beige head. Aroma is licorice, coffee, leather, sweet fusel-like fruit esters, caramel and hints of dark berries. Taste is dark berries, chocolate, licorice, leather, hints of cocoa and vanilla. Creamy thick body, medium carbonation. A very nice and smooth English-style porter in the stronger end the spectrum. Moor does it again! :-)

DonMagi (5593) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 8, 2006
This gives a complex but well mixed of everything that is good about beer in one pint excellent! Aroma is rich fruit cake vinous blueberrys some kind of hops that i cant find but good. Taste is outstanding, vinous coats the mouth soo rich and yes but yet refreshing. One to hunt down for again.

UPDATED: OCT 25, 2004 [email protected] BF. Caramel and butterscotch to start, subtle roasted malt flavour/chocolate/coffee, slightly lactic acidity. Dry finish, not very convincing, but some interesting flavors in there(3.1). Re-rate: [email protected] BF. Quite smoky, slight bacon flavour. roasty, rich and quite bitter, a fair amount of coffee, with a winey acidity.

Inbreak (5362) - Loddefjord, NORWAY - OCT 30, 2013
UPDATED: FEB 22, 2014 30.10.2013, 0,66l bottle @ home:
Big slightly brown and fizzy/creamy longlasting head. Aroma is slightly rich and sweet, dark malts, some strange grassy fusel-like esters, licorice, coffee, roasted grain, hints of unripe banana. Taste is slightly watery and burnt, dark malts, burnt coffee, hay, burnt caramel, strange woody fusel-like esters, ashtray, hints of unripe banana. Medium bitterness, slightly dry mouthfeel, very thin body. Boring!!
