Cask The Brewery Tap. Cierna farba, hnedá pena. Vona pražené slady, čokoláda, jemne káva, prezreté slivky. Chuť trošku prázdnejšia. Karamelové a pražené slady, kyselkavosť, trpkosť na jazyku. V pozadí kyselkavosť kávy. Vona je super, škoda tej chute.

GBBF Day 3. Cask. Almost clear dark brown beer, tidy pale tan head. Palate is light, semi dry and has modest fine carbonation. Earthy dark malts, mild roast. Mild dark chocolate. Tangy dark fruits. Light dry earthy finish. I wasn’t stunned.

jjsint (3100) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - JUN 12, 2016
Handpull cask at Silk Mill Ale & Cider House, Derby. Black with a slight purplish hue and a soft tan head. Smells overwhelmingly of blueberry but there a touch of liquorice too. Simply gorgeous. My fear is that it will be overly sweet but I needn’t have worried. The initial sweetness fades to a dogged bitterness shot through with sour berry and coffee grounds. Silky if slightly watery palate. Cracking little porter.

3.3
Towey1989 (2826) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 25, 2016
Cask at The Fountain, Leek. A deep brown to black colour with a medium beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, some chocolate, slight coffee, a little toffee and subtle liquorice. Taste of roasted malts, chocolate, some coffee, slight nuttiness and subtle liquorice. Light bodied and soft carbonation. A dry, roasted, chocolatey bitterness in the finish. Nothing exciting, but overall, a well rounded, decent porter.
