Leighton (17230) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 24, 2010
Gravity cask at the Old Fountain. Pours clear, dark maroon-brown with a light film. Lightly sour, dark fruits in the nose, faint medicine, with toasted malts. Flavor pretty sweet, with caramel and toffee, toasty, rich malts, some light fruits, faint citrus bitters. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Finishes sweet and malty, with brown sugar and toffee, and mild warmth. Quite good.

yngwie (16248) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 13, 2010
Bottle at Cardinal. A clear, dark amber beer with a small, dense, beige head. The aroma has a lot of salty beef stock, with caramel and some prunes. Quite nice, but nothing more. The flavor is better and more complex, with caramel, beef stock, dark sugars, prunes, coffee notes and a fine chocolate touch. Full body and pleasant carbonation. Bitter finish with chocolate and coffee. A very nice one, although the aroma was a bit strange. 101113

Fin (9175) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 27, 2010
Bottle from Beers of Europe at some ridiculously cheap price like £1.51 or similar. Consumed 25.09.10 Pours dark brown with a light beige head, looks glorious. Nicely bitter with toffee and dark demerara sugars showing mostly. Nice warmth coming through and dark toffeeness again showing. Top stuff, fed up of rating just want to drink it now.

DruncanVeasey (7999) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JUN 21, 2010
Bottle. Deep ruby with a fine beige collar. Seductive melding of figgy dark fruit, milk chocolate, oak and mocha on the nose, but beneath that- oily, resinous English hopcone. Creamy and decadent with a milk chocolate-coated raisin smoothness not a million miles from the DFH I had last night. Sweetish but balanced; faint, well-smothered, minty hop and a solid roasted malt base underpinning a wash of stone fruit, liquorice, milk choc and Xmas pud. Wasn’t expecting this to hear myself saying this: top drawer English sipper.

Sigmund (6236) - Tau, NORWAY - MAY 4, 2010
330 ml bottle, courtesy of Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. Bottle conditioned, ABV is 7.2%. Mahogany coloured beer, big beige head. Vinous aroma, notes of raisins and other dark dried fruits, also hints of caramel. The flavour is fairly malty and moderately sweet (but not as sweet as I expected), with hints of dark dried fruits and caramel again, while the finish is biscuity dry with noticeable hops. Fairly bitter aftertaste.
