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.

UPDATED: MAY 2, 2015 550ml: A nice winter warmer ,considering its early spring .-this should be redundant ,but its cold . Dark malt nose , raisins , coffee,chocolate . Deep brown beer , beige head . Flavours and palates suggesting chocolate notes, dark malt flava , caramel , red wine , raisins ... I bet this would lift from cask in the middle of winter .. From the bottle in May its decent stuff !

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.
