Pint at The Schooner Gateshead. Dark Brown, tan head, robust looking beer. Caramel & farmyard in the aroma. Yeasty bread and fruit&nut dark chocolate flavour. Palate was a bit claggy. I had to rush a bit, and I think thatís coloured my view. This is a lingering sipper.

Cask @ Mile Castle JDW, Newcastle 090912
Caramel brown, dense off white head with some lacing
Aroma - soft caramel malts, not much on the aroma
Taste - soft caramel malts. toffee malts, hint of chocolate, good flavour, alcohol well hidden, would like more flavour though - I remember it beingt a tad more intense than this
Palate - thinnish body. Finish as main flavour witha bit of soft lingering toasted malts with a bit of cocoa
Overall - Seems to be not as good when Iíve had it before - will re-rate next time I see it

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dont know why this is labled as a Best bitter its clearly closer to porter or mild due to the roast and dark malt, with berries. Dark brown with a thin tan lasting head. Smells of licorish, nut and dark roasted malt. Medium oily body. Taste of licorish, dark malt with some light roast elements. Stared really nice bu then got borring.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
500 ml bottle, from The Cheese & Wine Shop, Darlington. Copper colour, large to moderate off-white head. Strong and pleasant aroma of malts, caramel, raisins, dark dried fruits, blackcurrants, a hint of tobacco. Fruity flavour, notes of raisins and blackcurrants, also notes of caramel malts, but the beer is not too sweet. Moderate but sufficient hops in the finish. Very drinkable.
