On cask at the portcullis Clifton village

Pours black with a small head and a bit of lacing

smell is a lot of smokiness and not much else - a little astringent in the nose

taste is a nice balance between coffee bitterness, smoke and malts

ok overall but not an amazing favourite - an interesting take but is too subtle to be amazing

It pours dark brown, almost black, with a thick creamy tan head and very light carbonation. The nose has lots of roasted malts, mild chocolate, some very earthy notes and a hints of dark grapes, which are almost metallic red wine-like. The taste is not as strong as the nose suggested. It's earthy with a lot of peat as expected, lots of roasted smokiness, nuts and weak coffee. It has a medium body and a silky feel. Overall it is a very drinkable, well rounded and smooth porter

On cask at the Northern Ireland CAMRA fest

Pours with a a jet black body, almost grey in some areas, fairly creamy head, some bubbly lacing

Smell, lots of dark strong coffee aromas, very earthy, hints of soil and grass

Taste, dry and earthy, malty chocolaty body, some sweetness, slight hop bitterness on the palette, finish has some farmyard hints, earthy once again

This was recommended by one of the CAMRA staff, and it truly is a fantastic beer

Sampled on gravity dispense straight from the cask at FAB Fest, Miami Beach (notes taken).

Almost black but not quite, little head due to the dispense method. Mildly fruity aroma. Flavour is quite complex, vine fruits blend in with roast malt and balancing hops; a slight fruit sweetness complements these notes and lasts through the aftertaste. A very easy-drinking, delicious dark ale.

Deservedly voted no.2 out of 37 cask ales at the festival's blind tasting.
