Oakes (11874) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 10, 2014
Very dark. Sweet character, little bit of butter, some nuttiness but gotta get that diacetyl out of there.

wimpyjoe (2986) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 10, 2014
Cask @ Master Mariner, New Brighton. Very dark with a creamy off-white head. Lovely and smooth in texture with assorted aromas including a light roast, it has a milky aftertaste.

kwik-lime (1177) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 8, 2014
Cask at JDWs in Surbiton. Enjoyable roasted malt and coffee, hint of licquorice but I seemed to go off it as I got through the pint as milk chocolate came through a lot more. Should probably try it again earlier in the night...

Cask at the William Robert Loosley (JDW), High Wycombe. Black with a thick beige head. Pleasant sweet smooth chocolate with a hint of blackcurrant is rudely interrupted by some cheap black coffee and sour creosote. Nice at first but rather went off it by the end of the pint.
