niquillis (812) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 25, 2011
On cask at Agricultural Hotel, Penrith. My friends always raved about this, but I’d tried it before and wasn’t keen. Tried it again yesterday and it was good. A smoky, dark ale with complex flavours. Good stuff.

yngwie (13106) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 6, 2011
Cask at The Wharf. A clear copper colored beer with a small off-white head. The aroma has a roasted coffee-like chocolate domination and some pleasant fruity hops. Dry in the mouth, full body. The flavor has roasted malts and dark chocolate, both hoppy and roasted bitterness. Some fruits. Bitter, roasted finish with some fruits. Quite pleasant and tasteful. 101020

Leighton (10419) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 4, 2011
Cask at the Crosse Key, JDW. Pours a dark auburn with a fading, mostly white head. Aroma holds quite a bit of roasted malts and caramel. Nice flavor, roasty with mild mocha, caramel and faint, earthy bitterness. Medium bodied with fine to avertage carbonation. Nice hit of mocha and espresso in the finish, some toffee and ripe fruit, light, dry roast and just subtle, leaf and earth bitters. Not at all what I expected. Could do with a bit more sugar but I did enjoy this.

This is quite dark and malty bitter, I found it a little too malty for my taste, but others may appreciate this more than I did
