Beese (1802) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 30, 2013
Cask at the Milton Keynes Beer Festival 2013. Poured a clear, dark amber colour with a thin off white head. Malty aroma with some dark fruit and treacle. Good thick mouth feel. Flavour of prunes, sponge cake and dark malts. Finishes with port, molasses and some dry rye bread. Nice old ale.

Cask@the imperial, walsall. Dark amber with medium head and some lacing. Aroma of malts and a little toffee. Taste is malts, toffee and some sweet dark fruity flavours. As john says quite chewy. Very nice.

jmgreenuk (4361) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - OCT 26, 2012
Cask at the Theatre Bar, Birmingham. Dark ruby red pour with a big frothy head. Not so much in the aroma but the flavour makes up for that. The malty flavour really dominates this beer and there is little else, but the flavour is so good that I have few complaints. You could almost chew this beer! There is a hint of bitterness on the palate, but who cares!
