reggiedunlop (3632) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 18, 2013
pours an opaque brown with a thick creamy tan head...nice lacing and retention. aroma has chocolate...like tootsie rolls...and earthy dry leaves...just a light touch of hops. flavor follows suit...nice balance...leaning just a bit to the hoppy side but not excessively bitter. true to style. mouthfeel is medium/full and the finish is earthy/hoppy with a touch of chocolate...dries and lingers with hoppy/roastiness.

beervis (243) - Taylor’s Country, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 7, 2013
Dark with ruby hints and a good creamy head diminishing to suds.Liquorice in the aroma and on the tongue, followed by roast and coffee flavours. Light body, slips smoothly down leaving a velvety chocolate finish. Really very good.

ianwelby (985) - SCOTLAND - JUN 1, 2013
Clear very dark brown beer with a frothy beige head. A light, malty aroma. There’s a bit hit of malt on the tongue and a slight chocolatey hint to it with a hoppy edge as well. The aftertaste is a sort of hoppy, coffee blend. It’s lighter than I was expecting too, both in terms of strength and body.

MaltMan88 (10) - Bury, Lancashire, ENGLAND - MAY 13, 2013
Small head, attactive deep red against light. Aromas of chocolate and granary toast with malteasers. Palate very well balanced with more chocolate and malt with a bit of coffee but also some hoppy undertones a great all rounder.

Pizd (433) - Merseyside, ENGLAND - APR 30, 2013
(Bottle): Pours a black with brown tinges, small white head. Aroma of chocolate, roasted malts, nuts and some coffee. A great roasted flavour with subtle bursts of chocolate, coffee and nuts. Little bit of sweetness on the finish in a good balance with some mild bitterness. Was a nice surprise this, not bad at all!

SarkyNorthener (3830) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 26, 2013
Bottle. Almost black ale with a medium frothy mocha head. Aroma of cocoa and coffee. Taste is chocolate, roasted malts, dark fruits and coffee. All of which have blended fell with no one taste overpowering the other. Well balanced. Medium bodied. A very good mild, I imagine the cask would be better and reaching towards a 4.0.

Bif (1908) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAR 14, 2013
Pours a dark mahogany color with a thick tan head that fades to traces of lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate and a bit nutty. Taste of roasted malt and chocolate with a bit of nuts trown in. Mild bitterness and a dry finish. Medium body, smooth and creamy and a nice balance. Enjoyable and flavorful beer for the style.

Scipio (808) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - FEB 18, 2013
Pours a very dark brown, almost black, with a medium beige head. Aroma is malty, has mostly chocolate, some caramel, along with raisin notes. Upon tasting, I still get a dominant chocolate flavor as well as the caramel. I also get some fruity tartness as well. I believe apple and a little bit of cherry. It is a little sweet. The aftertaste is mostly those fruity impressions. Light to medium in body, much more than you would expect for such a light beer. More thin texture. This is balance well. There is a lot more here than I would expect for something this week. Its definitely worth a try.
