TheBeerUnited (47) - - AUG 3, 2016
Poured from 500ml bottle. Small tasty Co2 head. Ok retention. Some lacing. Carbonic for a minute or so then pretty much goes flat. Slight coffee and vanilla aroma. Dark roast notes. some liqourish.Taste is pretty IPA style hoppy with traces of chocolate and vanilla on the palate. Watery mouthfeel. Overall a decent beer brewed in my city but nothing special and possibly best as a session drink.

Dark mild beer with coffee and roasted chestnut aroma. Coffee and cocoa flavour, summer fruits (maybe blueberry) and liquorice. Flavour doesn’t linger left a little dry on the finish

Mjp12 (1391) - York, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 27, 2016
Rather sweet and malty aroma and flavour, and as other beers from this pub/ brewery chain has had, a rather unpleasant finish

theprof (483) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - JAN 14, 2016
Tap. Pours reddish chestnut rather than black. Aroma has chocolate but something else that has kipper in it. Tastes sweet almost bubble gum. This is strongest n the finish. An interesting mild. Worth a second visit.

Hippoman (646) - Durham, ENGLAND - JAN 11, 2016
500ml Bottle from Lidl, Langley Moor, Durham. Dark reddish brown with a large but loose and diminishing, frothy, tan head. There’s dark malts and cocoa in an unassuming aroma. The taste is reasonably sweet and very rich with chocolate brownie, toffee and doughy flavours on a thick, smooth palate. It’s marred however by a plasticy, chemical aftertaste that means it’s not one I’ll want to revisit.
