500ml bottle from Beer Hawk - A nice deep brown body, lasting white head. Nose is smoky coffee and liquorice with a similar tasting after. The finish is a little dry, with the coffee hanging on. Pleasant surprise and quite a nice one.

dogbomb (943) - ENGLAND - AUG 11, 2013
Bottle. Dark brown ale with a decent mid-tan head. Nose of charcoal and a little chocolate. Some roast coffee. Taste is light, but has a little licorice and coffee with some citrus. Light, for a dark... interesting and quaffable.

Dark ruby copper red. Texture medium. Flavour some liquorice, some cereal grainyness, some malts. Quite fine.

BlackHaddock (3772) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - AUG 16, 2012
11th May 2012 saw me on a mini pub crawl of Wellington: my local Wetherspoons had this on hand pull, so I had a pint. Dark ruby red body with a thin head of off-white, which stayed the distance. Malty nose giving off esters of black coffee and hints of dark berries. The taste was almost all maltiness, very little hop bitterness or presence felt. I thought the body weak and watery to be honest.

A dark brownish red with no head has a slight toasty aroma and tastes of toasted malt. Nice.

berkshirejohn (4528) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 20, 2012
Cask at the Old Gaolhouse (JDW), Winchester. Copper with a cheery red glow and a thin beige head; fruity aroma; a rather thin grainy body, with a light, fruity flavour; dry, fruity finish, with a hint of smoke and some residual biscuit. A pleasant, easy drink.

tombyars (1356) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - JUN 14, 2012
Tasted this in the Salt Cot, Saltcoats (JDW) in May 2012. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear ruby red in colour with an obvious purple tint present. Thin creamy white head. Short malty aroma with a hint of dark plum. Thin dilute mouthfeel and superb lacing. Dark malt base delivers moist plump raisins, dark berry fruit and a moist fruit loaf base but the combination is way too thin though. A prickle of citric hop flowers present in the brief aftertaste. Finish is malty and sweet with tart citric notes but this does fade fast. Ok for a quick session. Well recommended.

wheresthepath (1532) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAY 30, 2012
[Cask from the Falcon (JDW), High Wycombe] Deep ruby, negligible cream head. A little plummy fruit, some wood, some mild roast. Pleasant enough, easy drinking mild, but fairly forgettable.

Nice malty and easy drinking mild. Didn’t get much liquorice in this, but very much a quenching beer, and moreish.
