Gravity pour: third of a pint. 9th April 2015, Isle of Man beer festival. Good looking dark brown brew, almost black in fact: on top a full off-white creamy textured head. Not a lot of aroma, some malts maybe. The malts do show heavily in the taste with a semi-sweetness that needs the hops to calm them down (which they do) a bit. Decent and worth trying.

kwik-lime (1495) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 17, 2014

Pizd (433) - Merseyside, ENGLAND - NOV 16, 2013
(Cask): Black with a small off white head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate, liquorice and lactose. Mild coffee flavour with quite a sweet, fruity finish. Not bad for a single pint but the sweet finish would put me off sessioning it.

downender (6954) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 13, 2012
Cask-conditioned at the Black & Gold beer festival, the Gryphon, Bristol 2/9/2012. Near black with a slight tan head. Dark chocolate and black coffee aroma with a touch of berry sweetness. Full bodied mouth feel, with more chocolate and fruit flavours, leading to a soft finish. Good.

Cask at Cloisters. Dark brown with a reddish tinge, thick off-white head. Coffee, raisin nose. Fig and coffee flavours on the palate, some sort of soapy flavour. Bit thin-bodied too, but not bad.

UPDATED: AUG 1, 2012 Cask at Cloisters. Pours a dark brown colour with a reddish tinge and a thin light tan head. Aroma of caramel, coffee and dark malts. Similar flavours with a dry finish. Alcohol is fairly present with a lingering raisin quality.
