Leighton (18522) - London, Greater London, - OCT 12, 2012
Cask at CBC Clerkenwell, London. Pours clear, dark gold with a fine, beige cream head. Aroma holds some modest lactic sugars, modest roast, some leather, dirt and wet wood. Medium sweet flavor with mellow chocolate, dirt, background dark fruits, mild earthy bitterness. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Finishes with a bit more bitterness, plenty of dirt, earth and burnt leaves, along with toasty malts, milk chocolate and fruit skins. Quite a nice sweet stout.

HogTownHarry (6375) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - NOV 15, 2015
October 20, 2013 - gravity cask at Cask Days 2013. Murky brown with a decent frothy beige/tan head. Smells like a cocoa-y bitter - sweet and floral, not all that much roast - don’t get the cranberry at all. Taste - again, a bitter; floral, light roast, not much alcohol or tartness ... thick, astringent, a little still - unmemorable finish.

Bottle @ home, a year past best before. Pours a dark red liquid with a small tan head and sticky lacing. Aroma is malty and somewhat fruity with notes of dark fruits, dark bread, caramel. Taste has bitterness throughout, and notes of dark fruits, caramel, burnt sugar, red fruits, resin, biscuits and dark bread. Sticky carbonation and lingering dark chocolate (!) and sour apple.

Beer5000 (5900) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 7, 2015
500 ml bottle. Clear, dark amber body with a thin tan head. Light aroma of dark malt, bread and a faint hint of toast. Flavor is medium sweet malt and slightly harsh bitterness. Medium body and average in aftertaste. Pretty one-dimensional and boring.

Bottle from archer road beer stop, sheffield. Dark red with small off white head. Roasted malt and tart fruit. Sweet and tart with lasting bitterness. A little over carbonated for me. Ok.
