harrisoni (14020) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 31, 2007
Cask handpull at White Horse, Parson’s Green. Very deep ruby, with lasting beige head. Adnams yeasty aroma. Some dark malts, but the dark fruits are the stand out things here. Nice tingly hop finish. Not bad toffee too. The pump clip kept being turned around and then it was back on again.

yngwie (13945) - 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

Bottled 330ml (2009, Tuulensuu)
Dark nut brown color, small beige head. Rye bready, malt vinegardish aroma. Medium to full bodied. Flavor is also very rye bready, liquid HP sauce. Sweetish caramell in the finish. This traditional dark ale has some similarities to Traquair brews.

Leighton (11644) - 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.
