imdownthepub (11396) - 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.

jmgreenuk (5804) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - APR 4, 2013
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.

On tap at Craft Beer. Clear dark red - amber beer. Tidy suddy pale tan head. Light palate, low carbonation. Mild minerally dark malt with a very slight roast. Ok but somewhat insipid.
