Pours a deep ruby-copper with thin head. Chocolate, coffee, and toasted grains all come out. Great taste; currents, caramel and a nice bitter finish. Delicious ale from Wales and something I would love to see more American brewers doing. I hate to see reviews that call this "weak" just because of low alcohol.

Bottle from Morrisons, pours a coppery red amber colour with thick frothy tan head which lingers. Aroma of mild coffee and chocolate with dark fruits and molasses plus slightly woody. Taste is medium sweet and bitter and slightly sour, long lasting and rather good. A bit watery in the mouth feel but also quite lively carbonation. Decent mild ale

Cask conditioned at a Wetherspoons. Dark chestnut with cream head. There is a roasty, toasty element to this from the off. Rich, dark malts to the fore, hints of chocolate bitterness alongside a plummy fruitiness. Good stuff.
