Cask, handpump at The Old Green Tree, Bath, Saturday 25th January 2014 Pours dark brown a little chestnut in colour I guess, not much in the way of a head. More of a fruity stout than a rich stout in my opinion, in fact until I just read the description I wouldnít have even guessed it was a stout. One of those beers that you just drink without giving it too much thought. A bit boring but overall ok. A6 A3 T6 P3 Ov12 3.0

Cask conditioned at The Lamb & Flag, Oxford. Dark brown with ruby hue and slight cream head. This begins with a sweet, grainy flavour, not really the richly roasted notes that were expected. Some plum and strawberry hints in the flavour, sweet biscuit, a touch earthy. Ok.

Cask at the Belle Vue, High Wycombe. Dark brown with a moderate creamy head. Sweet from the start; brown sugar is dominant, with some chocolate too. Roasted malts make an appearance late in the day and donít quite balance it. Maybe a little thin too. Pleasant enough but rather on the sweet side for me.

Cask-conditioned at the Commercial Rooms (JDW), Bristol 26/11/2012. Dark brown with red undertones and a decent, off-white head. Sweet, berry fruits and caramel aroma with some milk chocolate. Flavour had more chocolate and fruit, with a sweet edge leading to a dryish, slightly roasty finish. Good.
