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.

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.

On cask at Coachmakers Arms, Hanley. Pours black with a caramel head. Smokey start with a sweet fruity linger in the mouth. More of a stout than a bitter. Excellent.

Leighton (10702) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 14, 2011
Dark brown with a soft, tan foam head. Lightly roasted malts on the nose with some dark fruits. Flavor is nice but really one-dimensional. Has some burnt wood, dark cane sugar, mild roast, light earth. Light to medium in body with fine carbonation. Finishes with modest roast, some sugary malts, light syrup and leafy bitters. Decent beer.

BeerViking (2432) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 11, 2011
Cask/gravity at Battersea BF 2011. Auburn-tinged black with a coarse and fast-disappearing beige head. Coffee, treacle and a hint of port on the nose, dry and full bodied with a slight tartness, like a cross between a black bitter and a dark mild.
