COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular. Also available bottled.
A rich red to black beer carefully crafted from the finest crystal and chocolate malts. Chewy juicy fruit flavours give way to a deep lingering bitterness provided by an abundance of Styrian Goldings, Millenium and Nugget hops.

Towey1989 (393) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 4, 2015
Cask at The Green Dragon, Leek (JDW) A clear deep ruby brown colour with a foamy off white head. Aroma of chocolate, blackcurrant jam, plum, smoke and nuts. Taste of chocolate, plum, raisin, some nuttiness and a hint of coffee. Medium bodied and soft carbonation. A spicy, fruity malt finish with some roasted bitterness . A fruity beer with good amount of flavour. I’ve had this in a better condition elsewhere and really enjoyed this more.

MrBlueSky93 (401) - Sutton Coldfield, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 22, 2015
Bottle from Hops in a Bottle. Pours dark brown with creamy-tan coloured head. Aroma of caramel, loads of it, bread, light malts, dark fruits, plums, chocolate. Taste of initial dark chocolate, then coffee, dark fruits, touch of caramel, then some fizz, really viscous and thick, coffee and choc then comes back and mingles with the fruity flavours. Lovely!

MichaelAwesome (5287) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JAN 14, 2015
Indeed it offers some malt and plums. Very easy to go, slightly sweetish piwo with some juicy fruits in the back. Quaffy and silky piwo - not bad.

stravale (2420) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - NOV 16, 2014
Bottle from Carringtons, Chorlton [131114]
Very dark brown, frothy tan head, good lacing
Aroma of very fruity dark malts, jammy tart dark fruits, no roast, plummy
Taste of jammy dark fruits, sweet sticky fruity dark malts, some bitter dark chocolate, getting some bitter spicy hop in there, quite complex
Palate - Soft carb, medium body, sticky quite sweet, some tart jammy fruits, liquorice. Finish of roasted malts, some bitter roast, soft dark chocolate
Overall - Very fruity malts in this, sort of a cross between an old ale and stout. Unusually over fruity malts, maybe a tad too much.
