GBBF, Trade Day, 2008 Gravity cask. A decent sweet stout. Doesn’t finish clean or tasty. Some alcohol warmth. OK.

Marheb (5617) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 10, 2015
Un nez de mlasse et de noix de coco assez intense pour le taux dalcool, jaurais mis plus haut juste avec les arme. En bouche il y a une belle onctuosit mais une lgret la fois, une souplesse je dirais. Les saveurs sont comme les armes avec un ct lact encore plus prsent. Une bonne amertume torrfi vient calmer les sucres brivement alors que ceux-ci refont surface chaque gorge. Belle surprise.

TimE (5608) - Tokyo, JAPAN - OCT 6, 2004
Stylistically challenged, pitch black and overhopped Porter had no head, but the nose gave off a deceptively huge citrusy aroma and the malts were barely present. The mouth was smooth with citrusy fruit, nuts and a hint of chocolate prancing around. The ending was smooth, but lacked real depth. An interesting beer that just gets a slightly lower mark because of it is not really within a style guideline.

Cask in the sir john moore. Aroma is roasty and chocolate malts, hints of over stewed cooffee and grassy hop, but thankfully the chocolate helps it. Taste is similar nice and drinkable chocolaty stuff, but could do without the roasty bitterness.
