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.

Bottle. Black beer with a strong head. The aroma is mildly roasted, and the flavour is pretty deeply roasted with a deeply bitter and fortified body and finish. Overall a really flavoursome beer.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 4, 2010
Cask at Wellington Arms, Bedford. Dark brown with a small off white head. Ashy log fire aroma. Sweet, thick leathery taste with dates and prunes, thick, rich... I almost want to say meaty, like a cup of Bovril. Mid bitter finish. Full of character. Almost like a Hopshackle beer.

Cask in the Tilley Shilling, Farnborough. A mahogany coloured ale with a good cream head. Bittersweet flavour with toffee, pear drop and some pine notes on the finish. Quite full flavoured. Drinkable and quite refreshing for a darker ale.
