Cask @ Spoons, Edinburgh. Spring Beer Festival (Ratings Backlog). Pours black with a tan head. Nose is rich, chocolate, malty, berries. Taste is chocolate, slight coffee and then you do get a little warming port. I’ve had this years before i knew about RB and i don’t think its as good as it used to be that said its till a nice beer.

Gravity at Newtfest 2016. Deep chestnut with a frothy cream head. Malty chocolate aroma. The taste is quite rich with chocolate, coffee and a little vinous note. A bitter tang in the finish. Pretty good.

Cask at The Bishops’ Mill (JDW), Durham, £1.99/pint.
Black with a thick, cream-coloured head. There are dark malts, chocolate and a little smoke in the aroma. The body is disappointingly thin and watery but the flavours are appealing - a pleasant blend of cocoa, cream, caramel and berries, although I couldn’t detect much of the promised port. Okay.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Black beer, brown head. A bit of coffee in the smell, which is pretty dry. Flavour’s dry too... a splash of coffee, earthy malt, bitter chocolate and a healthy hit of the port too. Very drinkable.
