AshtonMcCobb (2574) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 9, 2014
On cask at the Cafe Royal. Appearance - dark toffee with some red chinks on the sides. Lovely fawn head. Nose - gentle chocolate biscuits. Taste - lovely chocolate digestive and then cream. Actually honeycomb too. It’s that Crunchie feeling. Palate - medium bodied with a creamy texture and a fairly fresh finish. Overall - hallelujah the first tasty beer of the day.

Svesse (6157) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - DEC 15, 2013
(Cask at White Horse, Parson’s Green, London, 24 Nov 2013) Dark brown colour with frothy, beige head. Malty nose with dark fruit, coffee, chocolate and prunes. Malty, toasty taste with notes of dark fruit, prunes, raisins, chocolate, coffee and a certain spicy bitterness in the finish. Quite complex and very tasty. Nice one.

Scopey (6865) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 24, 2013
Cask at White Horse. It pours deep brown with a thick off-white head. The nose is wood, earth, toast, light smoke, spice and umami notes. The taste is wood, earth, toast, dark fruit, berry, spice, varnish, tang, earth and varnish with a dry finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Pretty tasty and well-balanced. Nice example of an old ale. Rather enjoyable stuff.

Gravicask (CWAF2013, Thurs)
Darkish reddy brown. Immediate "yum" from the aroma - slathered with cappuccino. There’s coffee all over the place in the taste too, but has some acidity that reminds me of the burn you get from vomitting. Still, gotta love the smooth and rich coffee roast. [cue beanshake action]

imdownthepub (10243) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 19, 2013
Cask conditioned at Cambridge Winter Ales Festival ’13. Chestnut with no head. This started off with a nutty chocolate flavour, a touch of tartness follows though, becoming fruity. Reasonable depth, reasonable beer.

tombyars (1357) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - FEB 2, 2012
First tasted this in Chestnuts Hotel, Ayr in January 2004. Cask, handpump dispense. Ruby black in colour with a thick creamy buff head and resembles Orkney Dark Island in looks. Rich roast coffee and caramel notes in the long seductive sweet aroma. Thick creamy mouthfeel in texture (like Dark Island) and superb lacing throughout. Dark malts give a rich moist and heavy fruit loaf base with dates, damsons, sultanas, molasses and caramel. Slight prickle of spicy hops but short lived in the aftertaste. Finish is thick and powerful with the malt as vinous port, treacle toffee and oak cask come through. This is a cracking Scottish Old Ale and highly recommended.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 29, 2012
On cask at The Bow Bar. Pours a dark brown colour with a thick, light tan head. Aroma of roasty malt, coffee and chocolate. Similar roasty flavour with chocolate again and a creamy mouth-feel. Nice.
