Sir John Oldcastle Spoons. Clear dark red-amber beer. Tidy pale tan head. Palate is smooth and semi dry. Very mild carbonation. Sweet tangy powdered chocolate with a good balance of plummy fruits and red berry fruits. Trace of bubblegum ester. Coffee is well buried. Smooth semi dry finish with a light chocolate aftertaste. Pretty good.

Leighton (10969) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 21, 2013
Cask at Penderelís Oak, JDW - London. Pours clear, red-brown with strong, creamy beige head. Lots of cheap cocoa in the nose. Light to medium sweet flavor with lots more of this cheap, quasi artificial chocolate character, light roast, faint earth. Light bodied with fine, creamy carbonation. Sweet finish with more sugary and cheap cocoa. Yeah, lots of this low-quality, fake cocoa. So so.

maeib (8718) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - APR 11, 2013
Cask conditioned handpump Moon On The Square Northampton 05/04/13. A black beer with a beige head. Lots of coffee and chocolate no doubt but actually itís a bit overkill. The nose is very welcoming but the mouth is too heavy. Does what it intends but for me it needs mellowing. Big body, big beer but a little ill directed.

Theydon_Bois (8668) - The íSham, Surrey, ENGLAND - APR 13, 2013
Cask at the Rupert Brooke, JDW, Rugby - 03/04/13. Dark mahogony brown with a thin tan head. Nose is dark malt, chocolate, toffee. Taste comprises toffee, cheap tasting chocolate, sugars, caramel, dose of malt. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Ok fayre and a good few notches better than the bottled version!

leaparsons (8070) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - APR 12, 2013
Cask, William Wygston, Wigston. Very dark brown with a beige foam. Aromas are coffee with smoky notes and raisins. Bready yeast with chocolate and dark cherries and vinous notes. Medicinal with dark chocolate and light nuttiness. Flavours are sweet and a little sour with dark chocolate and plummy fruits. Raisins with tart dark cherry. Roasted malts with a dry, earthy, spicy finish and more fruit. Nice.

Rune (8047) - TromsÝ, NORWAY - APR 14, 2013
Cask by hand pump at the Welkin, served in one-third pint glass at a tray. One patch at the surface of a deep, dark ruby coloured body. Poor lacing. Mocha chocolate to the nose, alright. Gentle mocha taste added by coffee and a little touch of tartness from berries towards the ending. Medium bodied. Enjoying after breakfast drink (Liverpool, 08.04.2013).

berkshirejohn (4527) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - APR 5, 2013
Cask at the Catherine Wheel (JDW), Henley. A great looking beer - a beautiful deep cherry red colour, almost black, and with a tight beige head; the aroma is pure drinking chocolate; in the mouth itís rich and chocolatey, in a chocolate milk sort of way, but unfortunately itís also very sweet; the coffee comes through in the dry finish. Overall itís very easy to drink, but a touch too sweet for me.

DanielBrown (3814) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 11, 2013
Cask at Figure of Eight, Brum. Disappointingly, this is better than I had been promised. As far as Iím concerned, this is better than Samuel Smiths Organic Chocolate Stout. Thanks.

Cask by handpump at Prestwick Pioneer - clear dark red brown, thin creamy beige head, no lacing, dark chocolate aroma, dark chocolate and mint flavour, smooth, sweet, oily feel, chocolatey aftertaste
