Finn (4208) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 24, 2014
Fra cask på Flying Horse (JDW), Gatwick 28 Jan 13. Dyp mørkebrun. Lavt tett skum. Brukbar lacing. Tiltalende aroma av bær. Smaken er for det meste malt. Litt syrlig. Myk munnfølelse. Har et underliggende preg av mandler. Blir vel tørr i avslutninga.

Had this at the high cross (JDW) Leicester- cask. This is a very good beer. Very dark brown with thin lacing. Aroma is herbal sweets/liquorice. Taste is very nice- malty but herbal liquorice with nice hoppy bitterness. Mouthfeel is oily. Very good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cask conditioned handpump Eastgate Northampton 23/01/14 A dark brown coloured beer with a whitish head and lace. A very interesting beer for sure. Citrussy fruits and herbal notes. Lamon and lime. Some licorice. Menthol. Liked this and it’s very tasty but it’s a bit strange.

BlackHaddock (3772) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JAN 27, 2014
Hand-pulled pint at Liverpool’s John Lennon Airport on 16th Jan 2014. Dark mahogany / teak like body with a full off-white head that gave some good lacing. This beer leads with semi-sweet malty molasses, demerara sugar, rum, raisins, plums and mixed spices: very impressed to be honest, hit my sweet tooth right on the head. Good body depth and the flavours just about hid the alcohol, a real pleasure to drink and I’d have had another if my flight hadn’t been called.

Pours a hazy copper with basically no head. Sweet, burnt caramel notes on the nose. Light carbonation with a light-medium body. Drinks sweet and smooth with caramel notes. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

marquisalex (167) - Surrey, ENGLAND - JAN 22, 2014
Cask, JDW. Rich red brown, v. light brown head. Aroma is malty, toffee, raisins, dark red fruits. Maybe a little licorice. Taste is similar, malt sweet, dark. Bitter influence is licoricy. Full bodied, thick, syrupy, bit of a struggle for an ale. Very nice, for a JDW effort.

tombyars (1357) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - JAN 20, 2014
Tasted this in the Salt Cot, Saltcoats (JDW) on 19th January 2014. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear garnet red in colour with a thin white head. Strong aroma of syrupy Del Monte fruit, long on the nose. Full bodied creamy mouthfeel and good lacing. Mixed malts give a robust maltloaf base laden with big tropical fruit flavours of papaya, mango, pineapple and cherry all in the mouth. Strong hop resins give a solid range of flavours with pine resins, fresh grass, dried hop flowers and juicy pineapple fruit in there. Big whack of malt returns in the finish with burnt toffee and ripe strawberry notes evident. This beer was in top form in the Salt Cot and for me by far the best Craft US beer from the JDW portfolio. Highly recommended.
