COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular.
A dark ale with a sophisticated blend of malts combined with a distinctive hop character. A balance of caramel and chocolate flavours from the malt and a great aroma of pine and citrus from whole hop flowers makes this a memorable beer. Itís a session beer to savour.

BeerViking (3171) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 29, 2015
Cask at the Express, deep red-black with a tight tan head and a coffee and dark fruit nose. Smooth, dry-sweet and lightly roasty, a faint plummy tartness counterpointing note of milk chocolate, blackberries and a dry bitterness. Very nice.

UPDATED: JUN 14, 2015

Feb 2015 - Gravity cask at Bree Louise. Dark cola brown, small bubbly brown head doesnít endure. Aroma is soft coffee, some berry fruit. Body is medium to light, watery and smooth, no carbonation. Taste is watery but has some ash, toffee, a little coffee. Listed on Ratebeer as a bitter, but there is no bitterness whatsoever here. This is a mild in my book. Drinkable, but a little insipid. (2.9)

June 2015 - Cask handpull at the Wibbas Down. Thought this sounded familiar! I wonít bother with all my notes, but the taste this time was toffee, molasses and twig. I got a better impression this time round - better condition I guess. (3.2)

Scopey (9033) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2015
Cask at CASK. It pours deep brown with a decent beige head. The nose is smooth roast, earthy, wood, toasty, liquorice, umami and coffee grounds. The taste is smooth, earthy, toasty, ashy, dark fruits, coffee grounds and wood with a dry finish. Light-medium body. More of mild than a bitter. Well-rounded and rather drinkable.

Cask gravity at Reading BF 2014. Canít believe I have never had this before. Clear very dark brown lasting beige head. Chocolate coffee yeast aroma. Some malt some wateryness itís probably not in the best condition. Distinctly average.

Theydon_Bois (12736) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 12, 2012
Gravity dispense at the 1st Runnymede Beer Festival - 08/09/12. Dark chestnut brown resembling still cola in appearance. A thin off-white head soon thins to nothing. Toffee, caramel, licquorice and a little roast malts on the nose. Tastes of roasted malts, chocolate and nuts. Medium bodied with very little carbonation lending to a bitter dry finish.

jmgreenuk (5804) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - AUG 25, 2012
Cask at the Row Barge, Guildford. Poured a dark mahogany with a minimal frothy head, but lots of lace. A hint of maltiness in the aroma leading to a citrus peppery bitterness in the flavour. Quite an unusual beer and well worth tasting. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
