Bottle. Pours a clear golden amber with a big beige head. Decent lacing. Dry, floral hoppy aroma with a spicy touch. Caramelized sugar as it warms. An itty bit cloying. Flavour is smoked (!) and malty at first (the smoke had me surprised). As it warms, the smoke gives way for a more spicy and caramelized malt profile. Bitter, malty finish with lingering smoke followed by grassy notes. A bit too much carbonation. Overall pretty okay, but a bit too cloying in the long run. 28.05.11. teorn88 (7682) - Rimini, ITALY - JUL 23, 2011
UPDATED: JUL 26, 2011 Draught at Porterhouse Covent Gardem, London. Red amber color, steady tan creamy head. Bready malty, brown toasted sugar aroma. Toasted, sugary flavor mixed with English hops. Aftertaste is hoppy Hansen (8594) - Assentoft, DENMARK - SEP 22, 2011

February 15, 2011. Shared by garthicus with blankboy and me. 330ml bottle with that weird ring-pull cap on it. Mostly clear light copper with a smallish off-white creamy/frothy head. Slightly vegetal aroma - floral and sweet - quite mild, not bad. Taste is floral and herbal, nowhere near as sweet, moderate alcohol, decent balance. Light body, slick, oddly astringent, weak carbonation, more bitterness than expected, but the vegetal aroma reappears in the finish of the taste .... not one of their best.

Bottle at friends - 27/08/12.
Russet brown with a thin bubbly off-white head. Caramel, fudge and berry fruits on the nose.
Taste as nose sweetish caramel being the dominant flavour.
Light to medium in body, lacking somewhat, slightly watery with prickly carbonation. jackl (8071) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 12, 2013
Keg @ Porterhouse. Brownish red color with a small off-white head. The nose is very faint, and I’d be generous to describe it having notes of caramel, brown sugar, toast, and light singed grass. The taste is amazingly simple - caramel. Not much else. Some light bitterness. Active, swishy carbonation on the tongue. Overall, not bad, just completely forgettable. danlo (3067) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - JUL 22, 2013
330ml bottle. Pours a clear reddish copper colour, frothy off-white head leaving alittle lacing and malty aroma with caramel & dark fruits. Taste of biscuity malt, caramel, fruity plum, berries and slight roasted notes. Smooth mouth feel, medium bodied, medium carbonation, some residual sweetness and earthy spicy bitterness through to the finish. Quite OK. Padchenko (355) - Dublin, IRELAND - AUG 10, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 5, 2016 Nice and creamy with a distinct and pleasant taste at first but slightly chemically and a little sickening if you have a second.
