Cask, GBBF Deep brown beer, powerful aromas of tinned fruit and boiled puddings. Excessively sweet flavour ruins otherwise attractive taste. Ultimately though, this cloying, overpowering sickliness spoilt it for me.

660ml bottle. Pours black-brown in colour, thin beige head and aroma of malt, treacle, raisins, dark fruits. Taste is sweet malty with chocolate, raisins, fruitcake, plum & berry fruity, and roast coffee bitterness. Slightly oily mouthfeel, medium bodied, soft carbonation, dry roasted bitter finish. Nicely drinkable.

adster (453) - HUNGARY - SEP 16, 2014
Sűrű, fekete teste komoly és méltóságteljes, idővel mégis ezerszínű illatokat áraszt, a kezdeti mokkás, tölgyfahordós karaktert később ugyanis varázslatos módon egészíti ki egy melaszos, égetett cukros és tejszínesen krémes, kávékülönlegességes aromapár, ami egyre inkább átvált egy megfejthetetlen és bohókás, egyszerre karcosan kesernyés és légiesen édes illattüneménybe. Kész aromabomba, ennyire komoly sörben ilyen szertelenül sokrétű illathalmazt még nem éreztem. Nyugodt, kiegyensúlyozott ízvilág következik aztán, melyben a főszerepet az intenzíven pörkölt, rendkívül telt, whisky-szerű jelleget öltő maláta képviseli az égetett faháncsos jegyek és a marcona komló elidőző jelenlétével. Tejszínesen, vajasan lágy, ugyanakkor fajsúlyos alapjai, likőrben ázó gyümölcsökkel teletűzdelt, izgalmas képe ideális kísérője lehet az év végi múltidéző, elmerengő hangulatoknak.

wedgie9 (2100) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 2, 2014
Tasted on 2/8/14 from a bottle at the RBWG Grand Tasting. Pours nearly opaque dark brown with a thin tan head that leaves a thin collar of lace. The nose is dark roast, a bit nutty, with a touch of vanilla and some baking spice. The flavor is very dry and a bit more baking spice with the vanilla taking a back seat. The body is medium with average carbonation and a long, baking spice finish.

wyzzywyz22 (2037) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - AUG 10, 2014
Bottle, Chester Beer & Wine. Very dark brown pour with not much head to speak of. Nose had notes of chocolate, malts and dark fruits. The flavour ploughed a similar furrow. with some berry fruit present alongside some warming booze. Smooth and characterful. Definitely an enjoyable winter brew.

allmyvinyl (4247) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 28, 2014
Cask at the Hanging Bat. Dark red brown pour, thin, short-lived head. Rich aromas of spice and fruitcake, light booze bite, almonds maybe. Taste is sweet, nutty. Finishes sticky. Good.

Garrold (1724) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 27, 2014
Bottle, ages ago, from Beer Central, Sheffield. Clear, ruby red. Halo of tan head. Dried vine fruit. Light cocoa. Some bitter nuttiness. Taste is dry fruit sweet. Plenty of plummy dryness, too. Smooth, creamy soft palate. Finish is light dry, and light bitter. Very easy drinking.

oliodnb (390) - ITALY - JUL 13, 2014
66cl bottle. Very dark brown, almost black, with a creamy beige head that disappears quite fast. Smell is roasted malts, lignt coffee and some fruit sweetness as the beers warms up. Taste is a huge lot of coffee, chocolate and roasted malts. Milky sweetness and a very thick consistency really makes it like a liquid dessert. Some fruity notes again (peach, banana). Very light final roasted bitterness. Delicious!

Bottle sample from RBWG Grand Tasting notes. Pours a dark cola brown color with reddish highlights and a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have roasted malt, sweeter caramel, molasses, dark fruit, figs, raisins, some earthy character, not bad, smooth.
