COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
"The always superb Old Freddie Walker dark ale serves as the base for this cask matured ale. Matured in Royal Somerset Brandy Casks, this beer is an absolute dream. Full, malty and with biterness superbly balanced by deep caramel and spiced apple flavours. As with all the Moor beers, generous hopping creates a long, lingering finish. This is a must for the beer connoisseurs amongst you. Itís expensive for sure but excellence comes at a price and we feel that itís worth every penny."

Quack-Duck (7777) - Down South, GERMANY - SEP 26, 2010
bottle from Dartís Farm. Deep black colour, some beige froth. Compley nose of chocolate, caramel, roasted malts, cider and brandy. Very full-bodied, huge flavours going on: caramel, chocolate, brandy, cider, oak, and more caramel. Incredibly smooth on the palate with a lingering complex finish. A beer to savour slowly on a cold autumn evening. Sensational - should have bought more.

planky84 (1930) - , Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 3, 2010
Bottle from Beermerchants.com. Pours black with a beige long lasting head. Very nice nose. Aromas of apples, chocolate, wood, spices, very vinous. Flavours of dark chocolate, toffee, caramel, baked apples, coffee, malts. Smoky, sweet mouthfeel. Finishes malty, fruity, slightly bitter with a gentle alcohol burn. Good stuff.

Beershine (5212) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - SEP 10, 2010
Bottle bought in beer store in Cheddar. Thick, pitch black with small tight tan head. Crazy aroma. Chocolate-layered wood barrels. Bourbon-drenched black forest cake. Dark chocolate flour. Very soft creamy palate. Deceptively drinkable. At no point does it seem hot or heavy. Rich, compacted chocolate and bittersweet cocoa. Some orange zest. Finishes chocolatey with some wood astringency. Absolutely delightful.

DruncanVeasey (7112) - NUNEATON, Top 13, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - APR 4, 2010
UPDATED: APR 8, 2010 660ml bottle from Darts Farm, ceremonially cracked open back at The Penguin with Octo, Helen and Keith. As good as pitch with a slim tan swirl. Some Hubba Bubba on the nostril over creamy oak, orange rind, burnt toast, Allsorts, lovely deep cocoa-dusted peardrop; Black Jacks once you get down to the warm dregs. Dusty, plummy and well-roasted with the comforting twang of apple bubblegum right through it. Zero alcohol heat, waft of peardrop esters, well-watered solvent and charcoal to finish; burnt pistachio for dessert. Sumptuous and fully-formed like itís been brewed like this for a hundred years. Right up there with Old Chimneys and Beowulf in my top 5 of strong English beers; the class, creamy oak and underplayed fruitiness imparted by the cider brandy barrel make total sense, harmonising perfectly with the plummy, appley fruit often found swimming around in an English stout or porter. Complex, sexy, expensive English effortlessly (but unexpectedly) eclipsing Pannepot Grand Reserva 2005 to earn the honour of being my 3K rate. Precisely the kind of beer that drives you to drink 3,000 of the bloody things in the hope that maybe, just maybe, 1 of the next 10, 100 or 1000 will be just as good, or even better....

Dark brown with a small tan head. Big aroma of chocolate, coffe and wood, with a touch of apple peel and cider. Sweet chocolate and caramel malty flavour with fruit and oak adding complexity. Slightly bitter finish. Wow.

Phil (177) - Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 31, 2010
Easy drinking, moderate body, slightly apple-y, vinous/sherry flor notes. Black/ruby hues, amber/tan head, with soft carbonation. Slight woodsiness from the oak barrels. very balanced. Not thick monster barrely beer, and great to see use of local casks.
