zacgillbanks (4454) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JUN 7, 2015
Bottles from Fenwick Newcastle and Booths, Keswick. A very dark brown, almost black beer with ruby red highlights, pouring with a white creamy head. It has a burnt toffee, currants and malty flavour, roasted notes and a nutty, smooth and honey finish.

Leighton (18527) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 12, 2015
Bottle at home in London - sourced from Ales by Mail. Pours clear brown with a creamy tan head. The aroma holds toasty brown bread, caramel and burnt leaves. Medium sweet flavor with simple, sugary chocolate, toasted caramel, dates, very mild leafy and earthy bitterness. Light bodied with average carbonation. Finishes sweet with some pleasant dark berry notes, some dusty cocoa, caramel, mellow hop presence. Very simple but also quite drinkable.

Pours black with a nice thick white foamy head. A full chocolatey aroma. Sharp taste with some nutty undertones and alcohol. Not great but OK.

gegwilson (3205) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 16, 2014
Cask in the Bon Accord, Glasgow as Skye Black. Pours mahogany with a thin cream head. A little sharpness to begin with before some roasty flavour. May have been past its best.
