The mirror image of Rock Bitter, smooth and dark with a biscuity flavour. Back in the pre-war days this beer would have been on sale in virtually every one of the brewery's jug and bottle counters throughout the county and beyond.

An uninspiring mild rescued somewhat by a half decent aroma, but overall a weak texture.

Bitter finish, not too overpowering. Not much on the nose. Good head like that looks like an espresso in colour, and lasted to the bottom of the glass. Roasted taste like burnt toast, with a certain sweetness.
