Cask in The Corn Mill Llangollen. Ciemna barwa z delikatna rubinowa poswiata. Piana mala bezowa. Piwo niezle palone z posmakiem lukrecji kawy i czekolady. Dosc slodkie. Przyjemne i delikatne w teksturze jednak jak dla mnie dosc wodniste. Jednak po prawie 20km chodzenia po gorach wybrzydzac nie bede.

imdownthepub (13391) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 9, 2015
Cask conditioned at The White Horse, Banbury, Oxon. Very dark brown with cream head. This proved to be a sweet, malty beer with a liquorice flavour, hints of chocolate perhaps and a vague boiled vegetable note. Reasonable enough.

Cask conditioned handpump Criterion Leicester 13/03/14. A black beer with a little beige head. A fruity and roasty nose. Fruity with dry coffee in the mouth. A lingering finish. A tasty beer which I had down as a stout.

Cask at The Wellington, Birmingham. Poured a dark mahogany with a big frothy tan head. The aroma is dry and peaty leading to a medium bitter flavour with lots of roasted malt, coffee and dark chocolate. The palate is smooth but packed full of chewy flavours. The rating should be higher than it is IMO.

Black colour. Aroma of burnt malts. Flavour has some quite sweet roasted malts and a touch of coffee. Quite light for a stout.
