Cask; Regular. Also available bottled.
A dark ale with a bitter-sweet taste complemented by a pleasing hop aroma and aftertaste. Brewed with select English hops, this is a good honest traditional ale.

gegwilson (1939) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 7, 2014
Cask in Durham Wetherspoons. Pours mahogany with a slight layer of froth. Taste is malty with a strong ash-tray finish. Tastes watered down. I didnít detect any off flavours, but this didnít seem right. Perhaps not pulled through properly after a change of barrels. Either awful beer or one that deserves a second chance sometime.

danlo (1597) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - OCT 12, 2013
500ml bottle. Clear very dark brown colour, foamy off-white head that leaves some lacing, and aroma of malt, dark chocolate, caramel. Taste is roasted malty with chocolate, berry fruit notes and an earthy bitterness. Watery mouth feel, light to medium bodied, medium carbonation, dry roasted bitter finish. Quite OK.

ManVsBeer (5671) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 12, 2012
Dark bitter with a slight brown glow to it and the thinnest of heads. It has a more than average bitterness to it which dominates its character.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 26, 2012
On cask at The Paisley Beer Festival. Pours a very dark brown colour with a fair beige head. A lovely aroma of chocolate, roasty malt, liquorice alcohol and caramel. Similar flavours with mild carbonation and an oily mouth-feel. A nice chocolate and roasty malt linger.
