sayravai (4667) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 27, 2006
(Cask@Angleterre, Helsinki) Very dark brown, almost black color with a smallish, but creamy and lasting, lacy head. Roasted-malty, slightly sweet, salty and licoricey aroma. Burned-malty, very licoricey flavor with some rubbery earthiness and a burned, sweet-sourish, quickly fading finish. No bitterness to speak of. Slicky and oily, light to medium-bodied palate with low carbonation. Definitely not bad for a real ale.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 14, 2006
Cask at Wellington Arms, Bedford. Very dark brown with a small off-white head. Faint fruit aroma gives no hint of what is to follow: ashy, roasted coffee malt and a smooth dry finish. Excellent.

TheGrandMaster (2334) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - APR 6, 2006
Pint pulled at JDW The Railway in Putney (London), a beautifully dark black with a bubbly, but thick, tan head. The aroma is a slight mix of roasted caramal and coffee. Tangy roasted coffee with some chocolate notes and a short finish.
