TBone (13536) - Pori, FINLAND - APR 11, 2015
Cask at The Pembury Tavern. Opaque black color, tiny beige head. Licorice in the nose. Medium-bodied. Sweetish in the front, the licorice all over. Good but one-dimensional.

Leighton (13271) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 11, 2015
Cask at the Pembury Tavern - London. Pours oily black with a foamy, khaki head. Lots of dark fruits in the nose, some chocolate, minimal roast. Medium sweet flavor with further dark fruits, grapes, berries, raisins, slight molasses, gooey chocolate. Medium to full bodied with fine carbonation; good condition. Nicely balanced finish with more ripe, dark and dried fruits, raisin and berry, some prune, fig, mellow cocoa and roast, slight earthy bitterness. Good stuff overall. Very drinkable.

Theydon_Bois (11543) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 4, 2015
Cask at the Pembury Tavern, 03/01/15. Black with a moderate tan swirl and edgeing. Nose is dark fruits, charr, raisens, biscuit, spice, chocolate. Taste comprises rich roast, liqourice, tar, big dark fruits and cake mix, molasses, light chocolate notes. Medium + body, slightly viscous but not too cloying, light booze in the close. Decent enough cask impy but surprised its so high up in the list of beers from England, things have moved on for the better!

The_Osprey (2785) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 27, 2014
Cask at the Pembury Tavern, Hackney. Black, no head - looks like oil. Aroma of liquorice, shoe polish. Body is medium, smooth, low carbonation. Taste is more liquorice, apple, bubblegum, tacky burnt rubber, slightly astringent. Sickly - too sweet for me.

jamesie1857 (1557) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2014
On cask at Kelham Island Tavern, Sheffield - BOOM! This was good. All the qualities of a good Imperial Stout, lots of coffee, liquorice, roasted malts etc on the nose, thick oily body with a silky vanilla ice-cream taste at the back end. Quality.

ladnewton (1560) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 6, 2014
Cask at the Pembury Tavern on 23rd December 2013. Deep red-black with thin tan head and no lacing. Richly spicy roasty aroma. Aniseed, spice, coffee and Christmas pudding in-mouth, very solid flavours continuing into a roasty, spicy and fruity finish. A curious sweet apple note develops if drunk in larger sips; I was unsure if this note was intentional. Velvet mouthfeel; body suprisingly light for strength. Works well as a Christmas ale although I was advised it is available outside this period.

DanielBrown (4034) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - NOV 27, 2013
Cask at Pembury Tavern, Hackney. Flat as a pancake. Sticky and very sweet. A bit lifeless. The licorice left me a little nonplussed. Will try again.

Beese (2560) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 30, 2013
Cask at the Milton Keynes Beer Festival 2013. Poured a dark ruby with a scummy tan head. Aroma of molasses, dark rum and Oxo saltiness. Smooth mouth feel. Smoked flavours with some port and prunes. Finishes with roast malt, dark fruit and booze.
