I found Old Moor from Acorn Brewery in The Leopard which is one of the best bars in Doncaster. The brewery is based in Barnsley which makes this a local beer and it's also a multi award winning beer so I had high hopes for Old Moor. Acorn Brewery are just heading towards their 20th birthday at the time of writing so they're pretty well established now. Old Moor Porter is a 4.4% beer which I guess puts it in the sessionable category. The beer pours about as close to black as you could ask for with a pretty generous just off white head that lasts until you're done drinking. It's a good looking pint.
Old Moor Porter has a really good chocolate and roasted coffee malts aroma which actually make it smell more like a good stout that a porter. The texture is thick and smooth just like a proper top class porter should be and the taste is really good. You'll find the roast coffee malts just about come out on top over the chocolate tastes but they're blended together really well, there's also a very slight smoke taste towards the end which I always appreciate. I'm going to give Old Moor Porter a very impressive 8 out of 10. It's an excellent beer that's well worth trying if you're a dark beer lover like me.
