kwik-lime (1800) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 6, 2016
Dark pour. The sort of flavours youd expect from a porter with a chocolate and roasted malt, plus a slightly fruity (plum?) finish. Nice.

Bottled BBE August 2017. Poured flat, lifeless, reddy-brown colour. Taste very bitter & sour, something not quite right here.

ForlornHope (455) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - JAN 9, 2016
Cask at the Wheatsheaf, Shedfield. Pours almost black with hints of red when held to the light. Thin off-white head. Aroma of roast malt and coffee, but not pronounced. A hint of sweetness in the taste, then a huge bitterness. Crisp, roasted maltiness, some hints of chocolate and fruit and a long, dry bitter finish. Very much on the dry end of the spectrum, this is a good example of a porter.

Lovely roast araom, milky. Quite burnt in the taste - fairly dry, but not ashy. In fact its very easy to drink. Hints of bitter chocolate. A nice roast finish with some gently sweet hops poking through too - good one!
