Rune (11120) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 3, 2012
Served in a mug from cask at Southampton Arms, half-pint shared with Finn. Deep, amber brown body under a bright naked surface. Smell of resin and caramel malts. Semi-sweet malts added by resinous bitterness in the flavour that continues throughout the drink. On the average level (London, 06.11.2012).

FatPhil (13867) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 5, 2011
Cask (Southampton Arms, RBESG2011 Saturday)
Chocolatey aroma, nice and roasty. Dark, but flat. Simple roast, a touch of appley retronasals. Flat palate, finish has little more than the roast. Went downhill after the aroma, probably a little tired.

Leighton (18527) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 29, 2011
Cask at the Euston Tap, London. Pours a clear, golden-brown with a creamy, white cap. Plenty of nuts in the nose, some coffee and toasted malts, interestingly enough. Light sweet flavor, lots of straight nuts, some hazelnut and almond more specifically, bit of brown sugar and mild earth. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Light roast to finish, yet more nuttiness, mild sugar, some dry roast bitterness, light earthy and herbal hops. Nice.
