martpez (42) - York, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 22, 2015
Dark beer with a golden ting. A smooth drink despite its alcoholic content which you can clearly taste. A perfect example of a strong yorkshire ale and one of the best of its type. This particular one was poured from a bottle in york. It still retains a distinctive flavour which I keep coming back to.

EdKing (2230) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 26, 2015
Bottle from the Berkhamsted Beer Shop. Pours clear chestnut brown with a bubbly off white head, which disspates to nothing. Nose is nice and chocolatey, nutty, brown sugar, touch of dark dried fruit, prune, slight earthy hop. Taste is nutty, tangy ale, brown sugar, earthy English hop bitterness. Nice robust bitter with nutty, ale fruity flavour and some English hop earthiness. On the finish there’s dark chocolate.

Draught at Craft Beer Tap. Toffee, roasted malt, nuts, bit of raisin, fairly dry finish. Not really my thing, but I guess not too bad for an ESB.

Bottle from Wine & Beer Direct, Halifax. Clear dark-brown with next to no head. Has caramel-sweetened darker malts in both aroma and taste with some small roasted notes that are most prevalent in its nose.

Bottle thanks to allmyvinyl. Appearance - Nose - opaque black with a nice fluffy head. Taste - massive toffee and nuts. Palate - medium bodied with a creamy texture and a balanced dry but generous finish. Overall - you have to invest your time here, but you get some back.
