TimE (5036) - Tokyo, JAPAN - SEP 24, 2014
med dark brown color. Molasses citrusy hops, wood dark chocolate. Very lovely nose. Decent smooth malty backbone with fairly aggressive hopping but found this beer would work better on keg than cask. Moderate bitter finish without much flavor .

HogTownHarry (6375) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - AUG 19, 2013
August 19, 2013 - handpull cask at Southampton Arms. Pretty much opaque ruby-black with a small but nice bubbly tan head. Interesting aroma - treacle and molasses, but mild, a little ropey tar for funkiness, no real alcohol or bitterness. Taste follows, just a hint of prune - really nice stuff, quite toasty and not all that sweet. Light and slick and a little still - finishes fast. I like it!

Theydon_Bois (16865) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - AUG 17, 2013
Cask at EBF XV, 08/08/13. Light black with a mahoosive creamy light tan head. Nose is a little thin, light roast malts, dark fruit tang, paper. Taste comprises toffee, biscuit, light roast, dark fruits. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, smooth on the palate. An Ok mild more so in look and feel than flavour as I’d have expected a little more depth and taste from a 4.7% example of this style.

berkshirejohn (5988) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 11, 2013
Cask at the 15th Egham Beer Festival. Chestnut with a thick cream head; the aroma has a touch of smoke; it’s malty and soft in the mouth with a good grapefruity bitterness. Complex and satisfying.
