[Cask @ Rattle N Hum] Dark brown color with a small, light tan head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malts, some cocoa, nuts, light caramel. Taste of much of the same, was on the sweeter side, with a bit of ginger. Average. greenclansman (975) - Nicosia, CYPRUS - DEC 3, 2011
500ml bottle, shared.
Dark black color.
Aromas of roasted malts and chocolate.
At first you can taste the chocolate and a bit of coffee, but the surprise comes on the after taste. Lots of spices which I cant recognize. Only thing that I could find was the intense taste of mint, like an "after eight" chocolate thing.
Not my style, but very interesting beer. FunkyBrewster (1518) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 23, 2011
On cask at the Map Room Chicago. Pours a deep brown nearly black with a small light tan froth. Aroma heavy on the dark fruits, cocoa and molasses and caramel with some very subtle coffee. Flavor is much fruitier than I expected, almost a sharp fruitiness but nicely rounded with the chocolate and roasty bitterness, a bit of the burnt coffee and a crisp lightly bitter finish. Medium body and a soft carbonation. Very different but enjoyable beer. evergreen0199 (3460) - Northwood, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 9, 2011

[Gravity cask at Chippenham Beer Festival] I enjoyed this in the bottle and was very much looking forward to the cask version. It’s dark brown, rich and fruity, with maybe a bit of Christmas cake and some port. This results in a smooth, rich mouthfeel, which is well balanced against deep roasted malt flavours and a kick of spice in the finish. I was a little tipsy (maybe verging on inebriated) when I wrote this, but it still stood out over the other beers at the festival. A top notch porter.
