Theydon_Bois (14316) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, - JAN 27, 2014
Cask at the Edgar Wallace, 23/01/14. Dark chestnut brown with a thin beige covering that clears to the edge. Nose is dark malt, honey tones, sugars, cocoa. Taste comprises a mellow chocolate vein, light roast, honey roasy peanuts, brown sugars. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, sweetish twang at the curtain call. Ok stout.

Cask. Aroma floral rather than cereal. Dark body tan cream head. The malts come through in the taste in a low key biscuit kind of way. Not sure where the honey went. Soft carbonation and some coating of the palate. But overall unassuming, if not bland.

imdownthepub (11947) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 11, 2015
Cask conditioned at The Bell Inn, Nottingham. Very dark brown with no head. Perfumed, floral, pretty flat beer, there is a tart, soured character. Really not for me this one.

edsspoon (798) - Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - SEP 30, 2015
Cask - black with a foamy yellowy brown head. Aroma of barely anything. A little pine and hints of chocolate maybe. Taste of chocolate, faint roast malts and a hint of grassy hop. Light body, soft carbonation. Very bland.

jamesie1857 (1763) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 8, 2015
On cask on a messy night in Sheffield - Deep black body, decent tan head. Nose is dark chocolate, with a light sugar background. The taste is helped by an excellent body, with the sweetness making this too easy to drink. I know I enjoyed this, but several scenes have been deleted from what followed.

ManVsBeer (6461) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 28, 2014
Cask @ White Lion, Heptonstall. Very dark red with a small creamy off-white head. It’s mainly a porter with the honey very light but providing a small sweetness and small smoothness to the ales texture.

Bree Louise. Cask. Clear deep red amber beer. Few pale tan bubblee for a head. Palate is light and semi dry. Modest fine carbonation. Very mild dark malts, tangy. Whisper of marmite. Light finish. Ho hum!
