Cask at the moon under water watford. Dark copper colour with a persistent blotchey cream head. Aroma is rye bread and choc with hints of nuts. Flavour is malt forward, nutty choc. But there are some higher alcohols. Raisin berry fruity notes as well.

This stuff is consistently underrated. Marvellous stuff! It has a caramel/chocolatey zing.

Cask, full pint at Minster Inn. Creamy, tan-coloured head that stays well leaving spotty lacing down the glass. Bright mahogany coloured body – very nice, indeed. Semi-sweet caramel nose. Dark caramel taste added by a touch of chocolate. Smooth roasted bitter finish. Medium bodied. Tasty (York, 26.01.2013).

Guest Cask at the Clarendon, Leicester. Dark ruby red colour with off white creamy head. Big malty aroma. Surprisingly drinkable. Malty taste with slightly sweet finish and bitter aftertaste. Nice- certainly rather have this than a hobgoblin.

Had this at a pub in the midlands. Its a low abv old ale that is lacking in the palate and flavor departments. I would give this tap a miss.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask conditioned at tge Ralph (jdw), Richmond. Medium off white head. Mahogany body. Grainy malt, oak, red fruits, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, toffee, must be some black malt in there, coca coka and some coffee. Pretty bitter. Dry finish. Soft mouthfeel. Not as good or as complex as it once was.

Cask. Dark brown with a slight haze, ruby hints and a thick tan head. Deep malt and straw nose. First wave in mouth is malty then a whole swathe of Licorice. Really rich Licorice flavours which then fade back to a pleasant bitter finish with woods and a little malt sweetness.
