Cask @ CAMRA NWAF ’14. Pours a dark ruby brown. Scent of mulled spice and savoury herbs. Malty sweet taste, heavy on the herbiness. Not great, started out ok but got very sickly very quickly.

Theydon_Bois (7944) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - APR 18, 2013
Cask at the Rupert Brooke, Rugby, 17/04/13. Mahogony brown with a good sized beige head that retains well. Good lacing ensues. Nose is dark malt, very light roast, toffee, touch of smoke. Taste is malt forward, dark toffee fudge, sugars, mineral notes, barley, dark fruits, biscuit. Medium bodied with soft carbonation, smooth and plesant on the palate. Decent enough fayre, but coming over as more of an ESB to me than a stout.

Cask Handpump at The Venue, Miles Platting 19/01/2011 Fruity aroma. Small white head. Mid brown coloured a little rich and sweet on the palate with a hint of spiciness in a peppery malt finish.

planky84 (1930) - , Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 24, 2011
Cask at NWAF, 2011. Brown pour with a beige head. Raisins, pear, red apples and peach in the nose. Very fruity. Crisp apple bite in the flavour, definitely an orchard fruit feel to it. Unsurprisingly a fruity finish.

UPDATED: JUN 21, 2013 Cask Conditioned Handpump Bold Dragoon Weston Favell. A dark ruby coloured beer with a whitish head. The aroma has fruit cream and caramel. The taste is nice and malty with chocolate caramel and fruit. Nice and thick in the mouth. Very much like an old ale in its profile. Score 3.7
Subsequent ratings scored 3.6, 3.6 and 3.6. Average becomes 3.6.
