ManVsBeer (8678) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 18, 2016
Cask @ Trades Club, Hebden Bridge. A rebadge simply called Conquest, of the 5% version. This is a dark amber, almost mahogany beer with a creamy-frothy head. Crisp, it has a light sweetened malty character.

DruncanVeasey (8012) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAR 12, 2014
Cask handpull, The Crown, Nuneaton, 11/03/14. Mahogany with a loose beige cap. Pleasant soft nutty and milk chocolate character lingering with hazelnut and faint cigar cocoa. Nose sesame and cocoa. Another good brew from Cottage salvaging an otherwise dry trawl around Nuneaton.

davidtjm (1074) - Berlin, GERMANY - JAN 25, 2014
Guest ale at the Phantom, Loughborough. Dark pour, small head. Light floral aroma, taste is watery, some bitterness. A slightly disappointing beer

OwainTurner (425) - Leicester, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 25, 2013
#5 - The beer, bland and uninteresting, a generic pint that tastes like it is over diluted. While easy to drink, it offers little more than an inoffensive carrier of alcohol.

evergreen0199 (3020) - Northwood, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 10, 2012
Cask at City Arms, Wells, Somerset. A dark ruby coloured pour with a medium beige head on top. Roasty, malty, fruity aroma. Tastes malty, dark fruit, caramel, slightly sweet. Incredibly moreish and delicious.

worldbeertaste (1795) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 9, 2012
Deep red brown colour with tan frothy lasting, lacy head. Smells malt and caramel like a good bitter but with toffee, vanilla, and chocolate notes. Nice solid strong ale smell. Medium thin body. Taste of sweet malt and caramel with toffee and vanilla notes. Sweet with an alcohol centre.

Svesse (7849) - Hšsselby, SWEDEN - SEP 2, 2011
(Cask at The Rake, Southwark, London, 21 July 2011) Reddish brown colour with brief, beige head. Malty, fruity nose with dried fruit, caramel and raisins. Malty, fruity taste with notes of dried fruit, caramel, prunes, toasty grain and a mild bitterness in the finish. Medium body, slightly sweet. Nice one.

niquillis (2344) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 21, 2011
On cask at The Congress, Longton. Pours ruby with a beige head. Low carbonation, a very smoky start and finish. Excellent first impressions but it does get a bit much toward the end. Not something you could drink too much of but an excellent pint.
