Lovely beer, had it a few times and each time it surprises me and how moreish it is. Fantastic fruity aroma when you first open the bottle, tastes of coffee and toffee and medium carbonation with a nice bitter aftertaste. Lovely balanced beer.

Bottle. Toffee malt and straw aroma. Amber with moderate head. Sweet toffee malt and moderately bitter herbal hay flavor. Decent body. This is the first "ruby porter" Ive come across - not really much difference from a regular bitter.

Cask (backlog). Ambery brown colour with a small off-white head. Aroma is caramel, some mild nutty notes with mild honey and some bready and biscuity maltiness as well. Flavour is crisp maltiness, ripe fruits, some mild nutty and mild toasted and ashy notes.

500ml bottle from Sainsburys. Good, old fashioned sort of ale. Pours deep amber with good carbonation and off-white head. Malty like a brown, wholewheat bap maybe and a kind of raisin or prune to the sniff. Nice, malty, slightly roasty flavour and rich mouth feel. Dry bitter-sweet finish. Really like it.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Max place. Thanks a lot Tom L.Clear brown with white film. Sweet and nutty aroma, a little chocolate as well. Nutty taste, slightly bitter and toasty, then sweet. Lightish body, chocolate and nutty finish. Nothing new but tasty and balanced.

DSG (12552) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JUN 14, 2015
Bottle sample at a tasting at Maxs place. Thanks Tom L. Clear brown with a beige head. Aroma of malt, toast, nutty notes, a bit of caramel, a bit of fruitiness. Sweetish flavor with malt, toast, caramel, some nuts, a chocolate hint and a drier finish, slightly bitterish. Medium-bodied. OK. Not really a Porter.

Color rojizo, un dedo de espuma. Aroma neutro, ligeramente frutal a cereza. Carbonatacion justa y cuerpo moderado. Sabrosa en boca, bastante lupulada, con rica malta tostada y con un final bien amargo.
