COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A complex combination of three different types of grain give a gorgeous brown ale with a slightly spicy aroma from the abundance of German hops.

leaparsons (7995) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 31, 2013
Bottle. Copper with a thin foam. Aromas are burnt toffee and berries with vinous notes and hints of shit. Gritty cocoa with spices. Flavours are chocolate and fudge with pepper and lemon. Nutty with hints of smoke and a light fruit bitter finish. Itís OK.

Theydon_Bois (7948) - The íSham, Surrey, ENGLAND - JUL 11, 2013
Bottle split at Cotteridge Wines on the RBBCBB 06/07/13 - thanks to Bladdock (Jeremy). Clear dark amber with a thin off white head. Nose is light fart, grain, bready malt, toffee. Taste pretty much follows - no further comments! Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, light bitterness in the finish. Pretty average affair - did little for moi!

Fin (7278) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 28, 2009
UPDATED: FEB 13, 2011 Bottle that dad picked up from Congleton area (cheers dad), consumed Dinmore, Herefordshire 27-12-09 Pours light chestnut in colour with a good clarity, there is an off-white head atop. Spicy Christmas nose which whilst fine is possibly a tad overspiced over enthusiasm with the cinammon perhaps? Spicy in mouth, but also a little sweet, tangy and fruity also. Not fantastic but the best of this Barnsley bunch that Iíve tried today A6 A4 F6 P3 Ov12 3.1 Had this again at FFTMC it was cask conditoned on handpump 11.02.11 Reddy brown in appearance with sparkling white head. Some toffee, touch warm, bit sweet and chewy, a little late hoppiness slightly better than the bottled version hence the re-rate. A6 A5 T6 P3 Ov12 3.2

DruncanVeasey (7112) - NUNEATON, Top 13, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - OCT 23, 2009
Bottle. Big disappointment on top of a Bobby Dazzler; squashy chestnut with a swirl of beige, obvious malt loaf, muscovado and aniseed aroma like Highgate blended with Kasteel Donker. Faint shrubby hop behind the sugar; blackcurrant rub of hop cone, Demerara sweetness, chocolate coated caramel and raisin, liquorice and soap. Bitterness like swallowed seawater, digestives aftertaste. Kasteel shandy. Won me over a bit.

downender (6164) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 14, 2014
Bottle from B&M. Copper in colour with next to no head and little by way of carbonation. Sweet caramel, doughy malts, a trace of leafy hop and gentle, brown sugar finish. Inoffensive drinking.
