downender (6134) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - APR 11, 2010
Cask-conditioned at Penderel’s Oak (JDW), High Holborn 9/04/10. Near black with a decent, off-white head. Sweet chocolate, light roastiness, marred by something vegetal in the background. Ok.

DonMagi (5596) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 10, 2008
Cask in Counting House. Aroma is roasty and burnt malt, hints of dark fruit also. Taste is similar very burnt notes however not too bitter so not completly ruined, but not my scene.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 29, 2006
UPDATED: OCT 31, 2006 Cask@JDW, Hammersmith, W London. Was a little dissapointed and i’m hoping that maybe this wasn’t in the best condition. Aroma is roasty and sweet, with some light sourness. Palate was a little sour, but with some underlying roasty sweetness, which was quite pleasant. I will look to try this again at another Wetherspoons, just to make sure it wasn’t the condition of the beer at this pub.

SilkTork (5163) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - APR 19, 2010
JDW Spring fest - Rochester. Creamy chocolate with a nice burnt toast nip. Body is a bit flat despite the cappuccino head. Some coffee lingering in the finish. OK.

berkshirejohn (4381) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - APR 22, 2010
Cask at the Monks Retreat (JDW), Reading. Black with a reddish glow and ring of tan head; aniseed aroma; thinly bodied, the flavour blends aniseed and fruit with a light waft of smoke. Very drinkable.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 4, 2006
UPDATED: FEB 27, 2008 Cask at Banker’s Draft (JDW), Bedford. Very dark brown with a slight film of a head. Sweet and sour aroma. The taste is sour, lemony, smokey and cheesy with a little sweetness. Full of flavours, though the overall impression is odd and muddled. 27.2.08 at ’Spoons, Milton Keynes. Tasted like a coffee milkshake made with sour milk. Hated it. Rated 6,3,2,1,5:1.7

Bullit (3961) - Burgos, SPAIN - APR 26, 2010
Cask @ Edward Wylie, JDW. Dark brown - red colour, tan lacings. Aroma is toasted malts, sweet licorice. Flavour of sweet licorice, roasted malts, some fruits. A bit watery. Agree on the aniseed mention. A bit smoky. Lots of things going on in this beer, but its a bit on the sweet side.

Mungo (2472) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - OCT 23, 2006
Cask conditioned @ Standing ORder (JDW), Soton. Dark colour. Some chocolate nice tasty malts and some fruitiness. Some sweetness in body with light lactic tartness. Well balanced and some pleasing flavours. Perhaps slightly thin in the mouth.

BeerViking (2294) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 16, 2010
Cask at the Moon under Water (JDW) in Hounslow. Poured a deep black-brown with a medium-thin head, and a plummy yet drying nose. It’s dry-sweet with dark chocolate, with hints of dry plums and raisins. Similar to a mild but with a slightly bitter finish.

weaselkenievil (1608) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAR 3, 2008
Black as the blackie the black cat from next door in the middle the night. Minus the bright eyes. Thin brown, quickly fading head. Treacle toffee like for me, a good beer for the witches and wizards amongst my fellow rate beer freaks. One of those beers I neither liked nor disliked.
