imdownthepub (10125) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 28, 2006
Bottled, 500ml, pasteurised. Good looking Brown beer with holding off white head. This is a decent bottled ale, malty with a touch of toffee caramel. Enough flavour, with a waft of dark roast and a distant hop. A touch thin maybe, but drinkable all the same.

FatPhil (9260) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 14, 2011
500ml bottle (ChrisO’s, post RBESG2011 Sunday) BB200904, drunk 201108
Sweet malty aroma, dull. Dark, but in a clear bottle. Naughty naughty, 4 becomes 3. Toffee and caramel dominate the taste. Super dry despite that. This has aged past its BB very well. Was probably quite a different beer when younger though. Finish is more toffee.

Bottled 02/10/13. A dark brown coloured beer with a white fluffy head. A dry ashy slightly burnt cardboard aroma with some fruitiness. Pretty nasty in places in the mouth. Ashy, fruity and thin.

Bottle. Bronze with a small off-white foam. Aromas are light tofffee malts with fruit followed by metallic, nutty hops. Flavours are burnt toffee malts with moreish bitter, metallic, hops. Has a nice dry aftertaste. A little thin in character but has a nice lively sparkle. Decent.

chriso (7347) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 27, 2005
500ml bottle from Asda. Coppery bronze colour, with a red tinge. Very bready, toasty malt aroma. Dry malt flavour. Very dry, in fact. Flinty, mineral mouthfeel. Nutty nuances. Not bad but doesn’t deliver a knockout punch.
