yngwie (13106) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 1, 2014
Bottle. Itís a clear, dark amber colored beer topped by a finger-thick off-white head. Itís pretty toffee-ish and bready on the nose, with some caramel and grass notes. Pine cones. Itís full to medium bodied and quite dry, with dried fruits and toffee in the flavor. Lasting roasted finish with toffee. Well, itís actually quite nice this one, but I find it too dry and one dimensional. 140301

Leighton (10419) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 5, 2012
Cask at the Crosse Keys, JDW, London. Pours perfectly clear, red-gold with a fine, white foam head. Rich roasted bread aroma, some toasty sugars, hints of berries and dirt. Light to medium sweet flavour with a surprising amount of sturdy roasted malts, hints of cocoa, toasted brown bread, mild earthy bitterness. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Moderately sweet finish with nice toasted malts, some semi-dark berries, rich bread. Quite a good bit of character packed into this fella.

imdownthepub (9954) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 6, 2012
Bottled, filtered, 500ml from Millets Farm Shop, Frilford, Oxon. Reddish chestnut with white head. Good fruity aroma leading to a sweetish, fruity, nutty flavour from a rich malt body. Hints of redcurrant and strawberry in the body, some bitterness too. Quite reasonable.

Cask, Lord Keeper of the Great Seal, Oadby. Brown with an off white foam. Aromas are weetabix, berries and light chocolate with stewed apple. Herbal with some yeasty, musty notes. Fairly floral with light nuttiness and spiced tea. Flavours are toffee malts with slightly tart lemon and berries. Chocolate with hints of lactose and barnyard yeast. Fruity and dry, spicy on the finish. A bit different.
