Ungstrup (34708) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 18, 2011
Cask at GBBF 2010. A brown beer with a yellowish head. The aroma has notes of roasted malt. The flavor is sweet with strong notes of roasted malt, leading to a very dry roasted finish - almonst burnt.

Cask@Akkurat. Very dark ruby red colour, mediumsized brown creamy head. Aroma is chocolate, roasted malts, spices and some smoke. Flavour is quite the same, but a bit thin. Still a very pleasant cask ale.

Cask at Akkurat, Stockholm. Almost black. Coffee aroma. Medium sweet with creamy, filling mouthfeel. Notes of licorice and chocolate. Solid and extremely flavourful for a 3.4% beer. Salty, bitter finish. What a session beer!!

<i>Gravity at The Bree Louise, London</i>
Red-mahogany color. A good mix of (light) malt and caramel, lightly fruity too; luckily there is no roasted malt, unfortunately there is a light metallic touch. The final, well bitter, is also a bit harsh. Enjoyable.

Leighton (18745) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 19, 2010
Cask at the White Horse Pub, London. Pours brown with a modest, off-white head. Lightly roasted malts in the aroma with faint mocha. Flavor is modestly sweet with notes of ash, cocoa and tobacco, along with a fair amount of dry bitterness. Light to medium in body with fine carbonation. Finishes is lightly dry with lingering, dark and roasted malts. Not bad.

harrisoni (17351) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAY 27, 2005
UPDATED: SEP 20, 2005 Cask at Yew and Ewe, Brookland. Black in colour, chocolate malt on nose, almost petroly. Excellent malts with grainey burnt malt finish. Some acidity and goodish length finish. One of my favourite dark milds. Wonderful, can drink it all night as it is only 3.4% Re-rate cask handpull at Yew Tree Inn Barfrestone. Even better than before. Excellent choc/coffee aroma but just gorgeously mild. Body is satisfying and the finish is long and exciting. So much flavour for a beer so weak
