imdownthepub (12595) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 16, 2015
Cask conditioned at Leicester beer festival ’15. Dark brown with white head. Really quite thin on the palate right from the start, some fruitiness perhaps with a touch of bitterness but overall very low impact for me.

zacgillbanks (4028) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - OCT 6, 2014
Bottle from Robbs, Hexham. A very dark brown beer with ruby red highlights. It has a sweet whisky-like flavour, currants, vanilla and plum followed by oak and a creamy red fruity finish. Excellent for a pretty low ABV beer.

McNeillR (2140) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 8, 2014
Dark ruby. No head. Soft cough syrup cinnamon. Flat initial taste, very little roast. Light bitterness. Mostly vanilla and minty. Not too thin but fairly dessert vibes. Finishes a cinnamon burn and clean tea bitterness. Pretty odd.

Cask, Blue Blazer

sic1314 (4775) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - SEP 7, 2014
Poured reddish brown with a frothy tan head. Aroma of sweet roast malt, dark chocolate, liquorice. Light to medium body, flavour of the aroma, light latte, quite a dry, smokey finish.
