jackl (5209) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - OCT 29, 2012
Gravity @ Wandsworth Common Halloween Beer Festival. The pour’s deep red with a small white head. The nose is plenty of roasted grains, sweet red berry fruits, hints of earthy cocoa. The taste is more sweet red berry jam, twig and roasted grain. Smooth malt flavors, a bit of bitter chocolate. The finish has a hint of bitter leaf and grass. Smooth, medium body. Quite flavorful.

Keg @ Knott Bar, Manchester. Slightly cloudy darker (towards ruby) red with a small slightly off-white head. Includes dry pale malts with a small darker and dryer fruitiness in its flavour with a decent nose in this respect.

BlackHaddock (4388) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - OCT 31, 2014
Cask: hand-pulled pint on 24th Oct 2014 in the lovely Abbotsford, Edinburgh. Deep reddy brown, clear with a full lasting head. Aroma was both fruity and dry malty molasses. The taste was like the nose: fruity, malty and fairly dry in nature, I also found some rye bread type flavours and a mild hop bitterness in the finish. Decent.
