On caskat the flying horse rochdale. Dark the dark fruits dominate this quite a light porter low carbonation. ManVsBeer (11168) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 28, 2016
Bradford Beer Festival 2016. Dark clear copper with a slightly sweetened roasted malt aroma and taste. It’s more stated with its sweetness in its nose. oh6gdx (26485) - Vasa, FINLAND - FEB 8, 2015
Bottled. Brownish black colour iwth a small beige head. Aroma is toasted, mild coffee and some leathery notes. Flavour is leathery, toasted, some dark dry fruity notes with mild ashes as well. Surprisingly bitter in the finish. worldbeertaste (1819) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAR 25, 2012
Bottle - Filtered. Caramel brown with a thick quick disappearing tan bubbly head. A bit of a red tint. Smell of sweet malt, toffee and light roast. Medium thin smooth body. Sweet berry and dark fruit start with a dry bitter roast and biscuit finish. Nutty and earthy with a vanilla edge. No way is this a Porter!!! More of a Brown Ale or a Premium Bitter. Not sure what they are talking about calling this a Porter. Some light roast elements. Very smooth and drinkable. imdownthepub (15524) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 12, 2012
Cask conditioned at Fleetwood Beer Fest ’12. Copper with slight head. Fruity, malty beer, reasonably full with good malt depth, some caramel, some roastiness. It’s ok.

Quoth Phil: Slightly almondy sweet malts, sticky esters. Finish mellower, but somet mushrooms. A touch of liver later. Drinkable, but missing something (or with baggage). (6:4:6:4:11=3.1)
Quoth Anna: Dark copper. Not much aroma. Tastes stronger than the percentage. Slightly sharp, dark fruit. Sense of alcohol too. (6:4:6:3+:13=3.2)
Bottle from Carringtons, Chorlton. Clear reddish brown pour with a thin tan head. Roasted malt, milk choc and nuts showed up in the nose. Flavour was sweetish and somewhat similar to the aroma. All a bit thin and lacking body and fizzled out rather limply. Not sure its especially porteresque. Ungstrup (38941) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 12, 2011
