chriso (7396) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 4, 2005
Copper colour with a red tinge. Malty aroma, with touches of smoky tobacco. Dry and fairly bitter. Decent enough, but there’s nothing out of the ordinary to grab the attention. Cask (gravity dispense), Reading Beer Festival 2005.

DanielBrown (3848) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 2, 2005
Gravity at Reading Beer Fest, with Kook, Duff, Chris_o and Joeh. Strongly bitter, peppery even. Some fruity malt, but generally just very bitter. Good stuff, to put hairs on your chest.

Gazza (726) - Worcester, Worcestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 29, 2004
Sulphury, dryish, thin and overtly malty dark amber ale - you can tell they’re a new brewery! (Cask at Brunswick, Derby)

DeepBlack (386) - Derby, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - OCT 28, 2004
On hand pump from the Cask in The Brunswick Inn in Derby. The 1st thing about this beer was the look, beautiful, deep redish dark brown. Taste-wise, pretty nice too, good head all the way down as well.
