Dark brown colour. Has a light caramel malty sweetness. A shame that this is so watery and thin.

Beese (2570) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 9, 2013
Cask at the Watford Beer Festival 2013. Poured a dark ruby colour with a scummy beige head. Aroma of caramel, roasted malts and leather. Dark fruit flavours with maple and malty sweetness. Palate was quite light with some raisins, burnt toast and sugary syrup.

Leighton (18668) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 11, 2013
Gravity cask at the Wandsworth Common Halloween Beer Festival - Le Gothique, London. Pours clear brown with alight, beige foam head. The nose holds well toasted bread, light chocolate and dark fruits. Mellow sweetness in the flavor with dark berries, wet leaves and mild dry chocolate. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Simple finish, more leaves, dried and semi-dark fruits. OK.

jjsint (2372) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - AUG 18, 2013
Dark brown. Faint aroma of chocolate malt, like an alcoholic Milo. Bitter for a mild. Sweetness then kicks in, but bitterness dominates. Unusual. Holt’s best pint in my opinion. Grateful for the reacquaintance.

Gravity at Battersea Beer Festival 2013. Thin looking brown colour. Light caramel and nuts background with a moreish earthy bitterness. Not the most complex beer ever but would be decent on a session (though I’d rather the bitter).

AshtonMcCobb (5358) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 11, 2012
On tap @ the Old Monkey, Manchester. Pours dark chestnut to black with quite a lot of glints of light coming through. The nose is not as chocolate as expected, and I would say this was somewhere between a bitter and a mild in reality. The taste is pretty much the same, some chocolate notes, but a lot of biscuity-ness. The palate is medium bodied and textured but the finish lacks elegance being a bit astringent. Overall, it’s ok but unlikely to revisit.
