Cask at GBBF 2011. Black color. Sweet and roasty with chocolate, ginger and toffee. Full bodied for a 4 % abv beer. Surprisingly gingery which makes this a bit cola like.

On tap at GBBF 2011. Silky in the mouth. Very dark. Sweet cereal flavour, with a long lasting berry, vinuous and slightly oversweetened/tart end - which goes on and on.
