FatPhil (15800) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 9, 2017
Gravicask (StABF2016) at 5.0%
Good roasty aroma, chocolate malts, softly sweet. Roastier taste, dryish bitter hops. A touch dusty, fairly burnt - a nice stout porter, and at a sensible ABV. Drinkability is good. Balance between sweet and burnt aspects well achieved.

Biroholik (1295) - Sosnowiec, Poland, POLAND - AUG 12, 2016
Cask @ The Boot, St Albans
Piłem to piwo w UK wiele razy i za każdym razem smakuje tak samo dobrze. Kolor praktycznie czarny z wysoką, drobnoziarnistą i średnioziarnistą pianą. Lacing książkowy. Można każdy krążek policzyć na szkle. W aromacie podobnie jak w smaku kompleksowo, bardzo solidnie, złożony profil. Wysoka paloność, ogromna porcja gorzkiej czekolady, kawa z mlekiem, tosty, zboże, przypieczony chleb, lekka dymiona nuta, cieme owoce i karmel. JEDWABISTA i SUPER kremowa tekstura! Tej gładkości nie da się opisać. Piwo jest tak kremowe, rozciąga się po całej długości ten smak, rozchodzi się po ustach i podniebieniu. Goryczka niewielka, krtka. Umiarkowane ciało. Super-pijalne. Bardzo dobre!

mabuzzer (755) - Hamilton, SCOTLAND - APR 20, 2016
Cask in Grain and Hop Store. Dark brown with a thin but bubbly tan head. Slight aroma of chocolate and leather. Taste is similar with added berry fruit. Went very flat, despite having a decent body. Mixed bag

Cask at Nags Head Reading. Little in the way of aroma but great body and taste. Creamy like a stout but not complaining.

Vladivostok (483) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - DEC 10, 2015
Medium dark with a loose, lasting head. Aroma is of roast malts and coffee although the advertised chocolate failed to deliver. A little thin bodied but not as bad as many. Long restrained finish. A nice porter but not a great one.
