DruncanVeasey (6950) - NUNEATON, Top 24, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - SEP 6, 2008
UPDATED: SEP 14, 2008 Leicester ’Spoons. Tempting ruby with a VERY stable thick beige collar and clinging lace. Faint choc, yeasty apple and cereal aroma deadened by that collar. Flavour another matter. Luscious dusty choc malt, sultana apple fruit (strudle), lovely faint smoke and choc clinging to the palate. The best English beer at over 5% I’ve had in a long, long while. Clean, rounded, beautifully fresh and packed with gently roasty malt chocolate goodness. Milky still. Can’t really fault this beer. Drinks smooth but deep and tasty like a really full mild, not a stout. HAIL THE BEAST. Glad I popped in.

A Mes rate: Cask from the Wenlock Arms. Malt and caramel nose. Red brown body. Plenty of lace. Nice and sweet with lots of toffee. Good beer.

RichardGretton (4175) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 26, 2006
Cask@Leicester Festival 2006. Dark reddish black beer with a lightly hopped aroma and a rich flavour with a bitter finish. Overall a nice rich roasted beer.

fiulijn (13533) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 18, 2005
Cask at Bishop’s Arms, Malmö
Mahogany color; frothy head. Light caramel aroma, very light herbs. Soft mouthfeel, some malt, caramel, some chocolate, correct bitterness (long, getting stronger). When it’s warmer, it’s a pleasant and soft Winter Warmer.

anders37 (15493) - Malmö, SWEDEN - DEC 15, 2005
Cask @ Bishop’s Arms, Malmö. Dark brown colour. Small creamy head. Malty and hints of toffee and caramel in the aroma. Malty flavour with chocolate and caramel. Malty aftertaste, some hints of roasted malts in the aftertaste too. Very nice.

MrWalker (926) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - NOV 24, 2005
Cask @ Oliver Twist, Stockholm
Dark ruby. Mellow malty. Medium sweet. Touch of salmiak, dark bread (limpa in Swedish) and coffee. Roasted aftertaste. Not too bitter. Nice. (Stout? No, to me this is more of a Scot ale)

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - NOV 19, 2005
Cask at Oliver Twist, Stockholm. Clear dark brown with red edges. Large creamy head. Roasted grains, toffee and almond in aroma. Rich and slightly oily flavour of black chocolate and toffee with undertones of almond and smoke. Long aftertaste of roasted malts and toffee-like hops. Pleasant stout.

DanielBrown (3625) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 25, 2005
Hand pulled at the Wellington, Birmingham. This to me, is a dry Stout, with moments of Guinness style flavour. Real tart, ashy and medicinal dryness on the finish. Very smooth and milky in the mouth. Nice, hard.

leaparsons (7794) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 30, 2002
Dark purple-red in colour. This is a fruity vineous beer with a light dry finish. The fruit flavours are almost juicy in the mouth.
