A satisfying dark brown bitter with a malt and roast richness complemented by a smooth fruit and hop flavour.

dogbomb (917) - ENGLAND - MAY 3, 2014
Bottle. Poured a rich reddish brown with a thinnish light tan head. Nose is chestnuts and toffee. Taste is nice roasted nuts, with more caramellic notes. Perhaps a touch of tropical fruit in there. Very full mouthfeel, really filling the mouth with warmth and flavour. A decent pint this!

dynamiteninja (1467) - Richmond, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 26, 2012
Bottle. Ludicrously described as "dark brown" on the bottle label, this pours a dark orange, with a thin white head that very quickly dissipates. Aroma is hops and fruit, chocolate. Bitter. Dry, dusty, dirty finish. Summer quaffing.

ralphdot (982) - Billingham, Durham, ENGLAND - FEB 26, 2012

rauchbier (3592) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - FEB 15, 2012
Bottle, from Rhythm & Booze Barton-upon-Humber. Deep copper gold, thin shortlived white head and low condition. Gentle sweet caramel and toffee in the nose, slightly thin and tinny in the mouth initially but some caramel sweetness returns, short finish with some gentle roasted barley bitterness.

ComradeK (978) - The Vale of Dundas, AUSTRALIA - JAN 9, 2012
500ml bottle (this is definitely not cask only). Pours a clear chestnut brown, with a small off-white head, which fades fairly quickly, but does leave some lace behind. The aroma is quite simple, but fairly appealing, offering a mix of toffee and light floral notes. It is not an especially hoppy bitter, although it does have some mild spice and floral hops up front. These give way to toffee and caramel malt notes in the body. A touch of citrus does come in towards the finish, joining the malt flavours. This is quite a straightforward bitter. It has all the typical hallmarks of the style, and does everything one would expect, and it is a passable beer. What it fails to do is go that little bit further to make it a really interesting bitter. Instead, it is a fairly simplistic example.
