[Gravity cask at Chippenham Beer Festival] Black with a loose off-white head. Sweet and smoky with lots of toffee. I appear to have liked it but I was quite drunk by this stage and the remainder of my notes are indecipherable!

larsga (6276) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 3, 2010
Biggish beige-brown coarseish head. Dark red barely translucent body. Burnt milky aroma with cocoa and cedar wood notes. Dry (and faintly acidic) burnt minty resiny taste with coffee notes. Light body. Fizzy mouthfeel. Dry pine needle and earth aftertaste with burnt notes. Later still it goes grainy and strawy. Nice, drinkable, and very clear and vivid. Lovely complexity.

joe19612 (1906) - camberley, Surrey, ENGLAND - DEC 28, 2009
Bottle Conditioned. Pours a very deep red brown colour with a good size beige head. The aroma has plenty of coffee,and malts, the taste is full of winter berries and hops, however the coffee flavour really comes through in the finish. To much coffee for my liking, but not a bad beer.

500 ml bottle conditioned. From CAMRA Real Ale Club. Poured a very dark brown/almost black with quite a deep white head. Not a lot on the nose, but lots of bitterness, liqourice and coffee in the mouth, Overall a most pleasant example of this type of beer.
