Leighton (10544) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 23, 2011
Cask at the Crosse Keys. Dark, dark brown pour with a tight, foamy beige head. Roasted cocoa and malts in the nose. Oh yes, this tastes damn good. Has just the right sweetness, lots of mocha, restrained roastiness, a little milk chocolate and just a faint bitterness. Light to medium in body with fine carbonation. Great condition. Sweet chocolate finish, mild roast and leaves. Very well done.

dnas2 (705) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - MAY 23, 2009
Gravity at Cambridge Beer Festival 2009. Almost black with a slight scum on the top. Hint of smoke in the nose. Quite thin. Rather sweet and watery. Lots of straw in the mouth, a hint of berries and a nasty metallic-sulphuric end, which spoilt it.
