Rune (8044) - Tromsø, NORWAY - SEP 17, 2009
I finished off my drinking sessions at GBBF 09 with two ales from the Mid East England Bar. The cask version of this one was dark as the polar night (excluding the Northern Lights) and got a naked surface. Smell of different kinds of dark malts added by weak moments of roastiness. Bready malts with bitter coffee malts in flavour blended with anise sweetness. Medium bodied. A good mild with porter qualities (Earls Court, 07.08.2009).

More than a mild it tasted to me like a combination of stout an porter but it was extremelly good.

Cask - The Duke of Wellington, Norwich. Practically pitch black with perhaps and slight brown edging and a fine, loose bubbly tan head on top. Dark, fruity malts, coffee and roasted malts on the nose. Roasty, chocolatey coffee malt flavours, some liquorice on the finish. A dry end, oily palate texture and a medium length finish.

ladnewton (1413) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 20, 2009
Cask via handpump at the Pembury Tavern, London on 15th July 2009 during their festival. Dark red/black with rapidly dispersing off-white head. A sweetish mild with some roasted malt aromas alongside caramel and biscuit (cookie) notes. Initially sweet but this mellows out towards a dryish finish of average duration, delivered on a smooth, rather flat mouthfeel afforded by somewhat lacking condition. The mark of three awarded for palate allows for the fact this was a festival beer.

berkshirejohn (4526) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 14, 2009
500ml bottle from Waitrose Towcester. Flat when opened, poured blackish brown without any head; aroma has some chocolate and lots of farmyard; thin with toasted malt flavours and some chocolate; and a sour bready finish. Different, and not entirely pleasant. Perhaps it was just a duff bottle.

UPDATED: FEB 20, 2010 Cask at GBBF08. Almost black colour, red shine. Roasted aroma, hint of urine. Good roasted flavour, slightly sweet to balance. Hint of bread and urine. 5 3 5 3 11

Bottle, 4.4%. Plastic aroma, like the Star Wars figures of my childhood. Dark brown colour. Frothy head, very small. The flavour is mildly roasted. A lot better than the aroma. 3 3 6 3 10
