Crosse Keys Spoons. Cask. Opaque dark brown beer, small pale tan head. Palate is softish and semi dry. Good fine carbonation. Smooth and mild dark malts, trace of roast. Some tang and an odd dark malt sweetness. Smooth finish. Fine.

jjsint (839) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 25, 2014
Cask @ Bankers Draft, Bedford. Verydark brown with a light brown head. Looks gorgeous. Not much aroma: a bit of caramel but that’s about all. There’s a savoury bitterness to it. Unbalanced but pleasant nonetheless. Aftertaste is too acrid, reminuscent of mid-afternoon diner coffee. It is a trifle artificial. The mouthfeel is slight but silky. A mixed bag but I enjoyed it all in all.

niquillis (969) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 23, 2014
On cask at Wheatsheaf (JDW), Stoke. Pours black with a tan head. I remember this being quite nice in a bottle. This was thin and rather bland, disappointed.

Beese (1996) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 23, 2014
Cask at The Moon Under Water (JDW), Watford on 22 Oct. Poured black, with a dense tan head. Aroma was very light, with some saltiness and burnt sugar. Mouthfeel was fairly watery. Some brown sugar in the flavour, with dark malt and very light coffee. Finish was smooth, but with very little lingering flavours; a little maltiness and some dried fruit.
