Cask @ The Raven, Wigan. Very dark with a creamy head. This has nut heavy roasted malts in both its aroma and taste. Fairly dry tasting.

Beese (1526) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 27, 2013
Cask at the Le Gothique’s Halloween Beer Festival 2013. Poured a dark ruby colour with a scummy beige head. Aroma was Oxo-like with roasted malt and grass. Dark fruit flavours with some straw and an odd hint of salt beef. Finish was prunes, molasses and resin.

Leighton (10512) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2013
Gravity cask at the Wandsworth Common Halloween Beer Festival - Le Gothique, London. Pours clear brown with a bubbly tan head. The aroma has light roasted malts, coffee and dry chocolate. Light to medium sweet is the flavor with faint tangy dark fruits, moderate chocolate. Light to medium bodied with fine carbonation. Dirty chocolate finish with mellow earth. Good one.

maeib (8598) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - MAY 14, 2013
Cask conditioned gravity dispense Banbury Beer Festival 10/05/13. A black beer with a little whitish wisp of head. A dry smoky beer. Some bitter roast. A veggy edge. Quite pleasant but not over burdened with flavour.
