COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Seasonal - December until it runs out. Has appeared at other times of year. Also available bottle conditioned.
Strong, dark and rich, yet surprisingly drinkable for a beer of its strength. A substantial beer that should be treated with caution!

Joeh (2049) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAY 12, 2006
Cask Conditioned at Ealing Beer on Broadway Festival, 2006. We had this and two milds on the table and they all were fairly similar, the alcohol in this was very well hidden and this didn’t seem an awful lot stronger but did have more body. Dark malts and lots of caramel, but not very interesting.

Cask @ Ealing BF 06: Dark dark ruby brown with a short tan head. Nutty malts, lovely dry choc and raisins. Nice darker fruits and warming full bodied feel. Tasty stuff.

Bottle Hazy, deep black bod. Lightly brown, creamy head. Aroma of coffee, liquor, molasses, chocolate: very nice and complex. Moderately bitter, lightly sweet flavour.

ndon (857) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 10, 2011
Cask @ The Harp 7/8/11. Pours a dark brown, with no real head. Quite roasty, toffee, slight bitterness, but quite boozy. Seemed a bit out of season.
