mighty_meadow (300) - Kilwinning, SCOTLAND - MAR 3, 2015
On cask at Wheatsheaf Inn (JDW) Kilmarnock. Dark colour, thin head. Tastes of chocolate covered coffee beans with a hint of aniseed. Only had a half pint, think a full pint would have let me appreciate this more. Will try again.

AshtonMcCobb (3591) - 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 (6757) - 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 (8371) - 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.

FatPhil (10085) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 28, 2013
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 (11135) - 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.
