Cask; Seasonal - March to May.
A smooth, dark, mild bitter with a biscuity aftertaste. Despite the colour, it’s light enough to drink as a session beer.

worldbeertaste (1693) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUN 18, 2012
Deep brown almost black with a tan hazy light thin head. Light roast and soft barries on the nose, with grape and malt. Memium oily body. Tastes of licorish, sweet malt with a light roast. Feels like the dark malt was added for colour and just a bit of taste. Simple.
