GBBF. Cask. Clear dark brown beer. Softish and dry palate. Slightly odd flavour profile. Soft cocoa chocolate and a tiny streak of smoke. There is also a whiff of sulphur around the hops that detracts a fair bit. Finishes dry with more cocoa and some orangey hop.

On tap at GBBF ’11. Brown, with hardly any head. Smooth tasty and full - Porter-like. Very pleasant, soft, creamy choc, with a nice smell too.

Cask (GBBF2011, Wed)
Dark, and with a tight beige head - beautiful. Super chocolatey aroma, mellow rich roast. Ditto the taste. Very full and succulent palate. Chocolatey roast is delicious, the roast has no harsh aspects at all. Perfect strong mind.

oh6gdx (25472) - Vasa, FINLAND - APR 21, 2011
Bottled. Hazy deep brown colour, close to black, with a mediumsized beige head, that leaves some slight lace. Aroma is coffee, mild roasted notes as well as dark dry fruits an some toffee. Flavour is coffee, roasted malts, some chocolaty and cocoa notes with some mild bitter finish. Pleasant roasted finish with some chocolate as well as some mild toffeeish notes.

Cask at the Magpie & Crown, deep dark brown with a beige head, aromas of coffee and some dark chocolate, lots more roast malt, smoke and coffee in the palate along with hints of dark fruit cake and a light hoppiness.

thebeertourist (5187) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 21, 2010
Bottle from GBBF. Pours very dark brown with a small tan head. Roasted coffee aroma. In the mouth hints of smoked meats flavours blend with coffee and chocolate. Well-made.

RichardW (1813) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - AUG 7, 2010
Bottle, Houghton Hall, Carlisle. A rich chocolate and malt aroma greets you immediately, with some coffee also lurking around. Smoky, roasted malt on the tongue and in the finish. Some hop resin for balance, but overwhelmingly a very fine, deep ruby-black strong mild, with a nice alcoholic kick, reminiscent of blackcurrant cough mixture. Good stuff.
