Christmas Day 2012 ( ten past midnight and Iíve just finished preparing for later): I need a beer. 500ml bottle conditioned: poured slowly into an íOld Speckled Hení badged pint vase. Nice looking brew: an off-white foaming head sat on top of reddy/brown coloured beer, sadly some of the sediment got out of the bottle so it had a slight hazy hue within the body. Malts rule the roost: caramel nose and taste but not overly sweet. Pleasant blend of ingrediants with a bitter hop backbone running through the maltiness of the main flavours. An OK beer rather than a great brew: would happily try a cask version given the chance though.

UPDATED: AUG 22, 2013 Bottled. A dark brown coloured beer with an off-white ring of head. Sour and fruity in the nose with chocolate malts. Seems a bit boozy. Sherry and oxidized notes too. The sourness isnít really welcome and itís a bit odd, but I quite enjoyed it. Score 3.1
Subsequent rating scored 1.9. Average becomes 2.5

Dark copper colour, not as dark as a "dark ale" but described as suxh. Creamy head. Aromas malty, slightly fruity. Not quite as dark or intense in flavour as expected but a reasonable bitter.

Cask conditioned at a Wetherspoons. Brown to copper with no head. Tart, fruity with hints of sour cherry. Flat and poor. This is supposedly in one of the better Spoons.

(pasterurised bottle.) I only bought this because it claimed to be a "dark ale" on the bottle label , my cynical eye assumed this would just be a dull bitter; a plesant one but theyírte usully plesant but dull as anything. Some sweet butterscotch...dry estery aplle acidity...faint and dry .

Cask (gravity dispense) at Reading Beer Festival, 30 April 2009. Dark copper colour. Moderate condition. Loose beige head. Slightly clammy malt aroma. Better flavour. Dry and malty with some late bitterness. Touches of fruit. A bit smoky. Pleasant firm mouthfeel. Decent balance.
