This rich and complex, chestnut coloured beer has a warming, dry finish to follow its unusual combination of sweet and bitter flavours. A coffee aroma, with hints of fruit, precedes chocolate malt, dried fruit and hops, which vie for attention in the taste.

Bottle thanks to allmyvinyl. Appearance - amber red with a decent lacy head. Nose - burnt toffee and molasses. A bit earthy. Taste - more burnt toffee, some red fruits. Palate - light to medium bodied with a tangy texture and a long tangy yet sweet finish. A bit thin. Overall - it’s a solid ale.

Bottle at ash’s. Pours deep amber, nose is quite foul, like a farm, burnt dung, sour, taste is sweet, cereal, toffee. I understand the name now.

500ml bottle shared with Ashton McCobb and Stuu666. Pours clear dark amber with a thin white head. Aromas of burnt dung, treacle, something sour. Appropriately named so far. Taste is marginally better, sweet finish.

500ml bottle from Booths, Windermere - Deep ruby red body, no head - shame. Nose comes through as strong cake fruits, lots of robust malts and a slight nuttiness there too. Taste is rather sweet at first, but pans out to a bitterness at the end. Fruity, bit of a kick of sharp citrus, and possibly a bit of burnt toast in there as well.

Chelmsford Beer Festival. Cask. Lightly hazy amber beer, small pale cream colour head. Palate is smooth with decent fine carbonation. Nice condition. Pretty sweet malts, mild cream and mild toffee. Tangy but sweetish dried fruits. Little candy fruits. Light semi dry finish. Pretty sweet but okay. And 4.5% is strong? Hello it’s not 1940 any more!

Bottle, White Hart Inn, Hawes, North Yorkshire. From 2008 notes. Pour deep dark brown. Malty aroma. Quite sour. I remember the disappointment. I had wanted to like this beer.

gegwilson (3278) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 9, 2014
Cask in the George and Dragon, Dent. Not sure how this is a strong ale at 4.5%. Pours chestnut with a small cream head. Aroma is raisin. Strong raisin notes and quite sweet. A little coffee too. A bit different, but not great.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - MAY 12, 2013
Bottled 05/05/13. A classic brown coloured beer with an off-white ring of head. Malty with lots of fruit. A bit sweet and sour. The sourness is probably not deliberate. An old fashioned bitter slightly tainted.

ManVsBeer (8765) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 29, 2013
Clear brown coloured ale with a small head. It has a lovely soft coffee aroma and similarly gentle smooth taste.
