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

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.

Cask conditioned at a Wetherspoons.. Black with tan head. Overly sweet beer on the sicky side, this is after a quite pleasant nose. Chalky between the saccharine sweetness and touches of tobacco.

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.

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.
