SilkTork (5217) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 20, 2012
William IV: Brodies Birthday Bash Sept 2011. Fruity mild with a hoppy tang in the finish. Good black fruit flavours - blackcurrant with pink grapefruit. Nice.

BeerViking (2445) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 4, 2010
UPDATED: OCT 22, 2011 Beautiful pour - black with a fine beige head. The initial taste is intensely dark chocolate with a hint of raspberry, the body is dry and malty, then a dry aftertaste with hints of smoke. Astoundingly good for the ABV. Re-rate on 22-10-11, lots of grass and citrus hops on the nose, light roasty body with hints of tart red fruit and cocoa, clean hoppy finish, quite excellent but reminiscent more of a black IPA than a stout.

Ethereal (2417) - Los Angeles, California, USA - DEC 29, 2010
Cask at the William IV (Brodies Autumn Fest), 4th Sept 2010. Black with no head. Malty, burnt notes on the nose. Slightly watery palate (it is sub-3% after all). Good light stout with lots of roasted malt. A nice dark beer for quaffing.

ladnewton (1413) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 3, 2010
Cask at the Jolly Butchers, Stoke Newington on 28th August 2010. Brown to black with a pale brown ring of foam. Spice and apricot fruits in the initial aroma. The main taste in-mouth is strongly bitter with some berry fruits in the background. A very bitter finish that builds on each sip. Zingy mouthfeel. Excellent for such a low strength - a well crafted beer and very well-kept in the pub.
