3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

On cask at The Bow Bar. Pours a very dark ruby colour with a thick, light tan head. Aroma of coffee caramel, chocolate and alcohol. Similar flavours of roast malt, coffee and chocolate. Very tasty and just a little dry to finish. Mild carbonation and an oily mouth-feel.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Carringtons, Chorlton 
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.
