A traditional dark beer, which uses 4 different malts to achieve the intense flavour with a hint of bitterness derived from roast barley and chocolate malt. A London yeast is normally used for the relatively warm fermentation, which adds a slight fruitiness to the beer.

JohnRMurdoch (3407) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - JUL 6, 2014
500ml bottle shared with mr_h. Very dark brown, not much head. Grain chocolate malt aroma. Toffee coffee flavour, bitter sweet aftertaste. Bit strong for a mild but tastes OK.

Scopey (7413) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 22, 2014
Bottle at home. It pours darkest brown with a medium beige head. The nose is toast, light roast, chocolate and dark fruit. The taste is smooth, bitter-sweet, cocoa, toast, some stewed berry, mild acidity and liquorice with a dry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Nice fruitiness going on in the background. Well rounded and very drinkable. Nice work.

allmyvinyl (4231) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 19, 2013
500ml bottle at home. Deep dark brown with little to no head. Aromas of coffee, plum pudding, chocolate cake. Taste has a fruity sweetness and light roast bitterness. Creamy smooth texture, veering towards oily - in a good way - clean finish. Very nice.

zimbo (611) - SCOTLAND - OCT 5, 2013
Cask at a local cask festival. Rich dark brown in colour with some sparkle. Rich-ish flavour of chocolate, malt and earth matches the smooth medium body. Complex and on the luxurious side. Very good.

mr_h (3087) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - SEP 8, 2012
Cask by handpump at Cloisters, Edinburgh - clear brown ale, creamy tan head, sweet malt aroma, caramel, liquorice, good body, oily feel, good temperature, slight sour aftertaste

jamestulloch (1570) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 7, 2012
Aroma: Restrained aroma of coffee and milk chocolate.

Appearance: Dark brown body with a huge, dense tan head. Gorgeous lacing.

Taste: Malty and sweet, but with a tangy, sour finish. Flavours of milky coffee, stewed fruit and light pepper notes. Not very moreish.

Palate: Full body with a thick, creamy mouthfeel. Very soft carbonation.

Overall: Quite an unusual beer. Would score higher if is wasn’t for the unpleasant sour taste.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 17, 2012
On draught at The Southern Bar Opening. A black beer with a fair light tan head. Aroma of liquorice, caramel and chocolate. Similar flavours with lingering dark chocolate. Mild carbonation and an oily mouth-feel.

Beersiveknown (3246) - NORTHERN IRELAND - MAR 13, 2012
Bottle at home courtesy of dantheman278. Thanks! This one’s a gusher! I perhaps didn’t let it settle after travelling but even so... a bit too much yeast in there methinks. Pours a ruby tinged black with big fluffy cola head. Faint chocolate and milk on the nose. More prevalent in body, quite thick, almost creamy in an oatmeal stout way with some roastiness in the finish

tombyars (1411) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - FEB 8, 2012
Tasted this at the Troon Beer Festival in October 2010. Cask, gravity dispense. Dull black in colour with no head. Plain chocolate present in the short aroma. Thin oily mouthfeel and no lacing at all. Dark malts deliver sweet mocha chocolate and plump juicy raisins full in the mouth. Slight prickle of dusty hops comes through in the short aftertaste. Finish is malty and slightly dry but flavours start to drop out at the end rather weakly though for a 5%. An ok mild and maybe off form on the night.

Nightfall (1307) - Hamburg, GERMANY - NOV 7, 2011
RBESG Sheffield 2009 Grand Tasting @ the Harlequin. Chestnut color, small light brownish head. Malty, caramel, some hops in the aroma. Taste is sweeter than expected. Caramel, earthy notes, soem hops in the background.
