COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular.
A Rich Dark Porter brewed with 10 different malts giving a sweet roast richness that is balanced with just enough hop character. This ale has a surprising drinkability for it’s colour and abv. Don’t let the sumptuous roast malt fool you, this porter is seriously potent & has the potential to take you to another place...

Cask at CBC Brixton. Pours a dark coca-cola colour with a red tinge and an off white head. Not much in the way of an aroma at all. Slight breadlines perhaps. Medium body, mild carbonation. Red fruits, a little milk choc and a mild citrus bitter finish. OK. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From a cask. Smooth and slightly sweet porter. The taste is quite complex and has chocolate and coffee.

Roasted, medium body porter. Not too sweet but lacks something more. Some chocolate in aftertaste. Decent traditional porter.

Cask at Gallows bird. Pours near black (clear, deep dark red) with frothy tan head. Slightly oily mouth feel, roasted malt and burnt sugar in taste. Very low carbonation and short aftertaste.

Migmar (255) - Espoo, FINLAND - NOV 26, 2013
As real ale at Kitty’s in Helsinki. Black, big bubbly head. Roasted coffee. Light sweetness and medium bitterness. Very smooth and drinkable. My first real ale in a long time, so probably that raises my points a tad.

foxo82 (919) - Bromsgrove (via Leicester), Worcestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 23, 2013
On tap at Rutland Arms, Sheffield. Black - no real surprise there. Weak coffee aroma and a really smooth feel. Taste is coffee malt but mild and drinkable. Lacks complexity but a nice beer.

jd543 (428) - SCOTLAND - NOV 20, 2013
Black with essentially no head (a little beige foam around the side of the glass). Aroma of roast malt and strong, black coffee. Taste was nice enough, light sweet, bitter finish. A bit thin on the palate, light oily texture, low carbonation. I wish it was a bit thicker & with a bit more body. Pleasant enough, but could have a bit more going on; a little one-dimensional.
