The_Osprey (3443) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 21, 2015
Cask at GBBF. Did I just order a cherry cola? It’s cola black with a small off-white head. Smells like cherry cola, with some sweet bbq sauce as well. Body is medium, smooth, low carbonation. Taste is … more cherry cola, smooth malts, no real bitterness. I only shared a third of this so not sure what the drinkability is like, but I liked what I had.

Scopey (9349) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 12, 2015
Cask at GBBF 2015. It pours cloudy dark red-brown with a thick beige head. The nose is soft, sweet cherry, candy, fruit cake, light spice, bakewell tart and plum. The taste is smooth, toasty, earthy, wood, earthy roast, leather, cocoa, sweet cherry and bakewell tart with a short, dry finish. Light body and fine carbonation. A touch sweet. Simple stuff. So - so.

Bottle. Very dark reddish brown, almost black. Lots of yeast sediment. Large light tan head, big bubbles. Aromas of roast, dark chocolate. Not picking up cherry in the aroma, but its strong in the taste. Sweet with a bitter aftertaste. Aftertaste lingers and leaves the mouth feeling very dry and claggy.Drinkable, but distinctly average.

Thank you Meghan for bringing back a bottle from your overseas trip. This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a semi-dark red color with a one finger white to off white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute and then leaving a decent amount of speckled lacing. The smell had a super sweet cherry in front of some dried dark chocolate. The taste took the sweet cherry and dark chocolate to combine and added a slight tart element to it. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium with a decent sessionability about it. There was a mild soft carbonation about it to allow a smooth texture about it. Overall, good mild ale that I could down again, nothing over the top.

Cask conditioned at Birmingham Beer Fest ’13. Dark copper with white head. Overbearingly sweet with a bubblegum type cherry flavour. I really struggled with this one, finished off by Sandra who enjoyed it.

August 28, 2013 - hand-pull cask at Bree Louise. Clear ruby with a tiny beige head. Medicinal fake cherry aroma, some roast. Yay mate less unpleasant but ugly aftertaste. Light, still, slick, quick finishing with That ugly aftertaste. Pass.
