[cask at the Caley Sample Room, Edinburgh] Black pour with a large beige head that reduces pretty quickly to a dusky brown lacing. Lovely soft aroma of dark stone fruits, leather, chocolate. Really smooth on the palate, thereís hardly any alcohol in evidence Ė the aging has mellowed everything out into a gentle balance of plummy fruit and spiced chocolate. Lovely [14072012]

stravale (2258) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - JUL 16, 2012
Cask @ The Caley, Edinburgh 140712
Jet black, thin tan head, touch of lacing
Aroma - fruity dark malts, dark caramel, soft spices, really mellow, alcohol less noticeable than OFW
Taste as main aroma, bit less spicy than OFW, more fruity, soft chocolate, dark rich fruity malts, alcohol very well hidden, mellow, smooth, complex, what a great flavour
Palate - soft carb, medium to full body. Wonderful smoothness. Finish as main flavour, nice lingering dark fruity malts
Overall - This is a shade better than Old Freddy - itís a fantastic hybrid porter / winter warmer ale

Leighton (11841) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 15, 2011
Cask at CPK. Pours almost black with a sturdy, beige head. Aroma holds some roast, baking cocoa and ripe fruits. Flavor isnít too sweet and has lots of bitter chocolate, mild roast, dried fruit and light alcohol. Medium to full in body with soft carbonation. Finishes with hard, bitter chocolate maltiness and some roasty wood. Very decent.

chriso (7428) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 13, 2011
Cask (handpump) at the Cask Pub & Kitchen, Pimlico on 5 February 2011. Very dark - almost black. Not a huge amount of condition. Very rich on the palate with chewy fruit and lots of chocolate. A touch vinous. Presumably based on the Old Freddy Walker with additions? Some almost rum & raisin-like qualities. Maybe port. Some residual sweet notes. Excellent stuff.

evergreen0199 (2135) - Northwood, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 11, 2011
Cask at Cask Pub and Kitchen, Pimlico, London. A black coloured pour with a healthy beige head. Nice dark fruit, chocolate aroma. Tastes of dark chocolate, dark fruit, Quite Christmasey and rather similar to Old Freddy Walker. Rich warming and delicious.

harrisoni (14104) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 8, 2011
Handpull cask condition at CP&K. Black as hell lasting tan head. That is a tasty dark beer lots of bitter dark chocolate. Its probably has some port quite chocolate liquer like. Impressive. Lovely aftertaste

downender (6521) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 30, 2010
UPDATED: FEB 13, 2011 Cask-conditioned at the Seven Stars, Bristol 30/01/10. Dark brown with hints of red and a decent tan head. Aroma of chocolate, dried fruit and nuts. Flavour had more chocolate, with a rum edge and caramel that made me think of Thorntonís truffles, before some fruit cake and a decent bitter finish. Presumably related to Old Freddy Walker and very enjoyable.
