foolberry (56) - New Malden, Surrey, - JAN 25, 2013
Aroma of heavy malt, chocolate, slightly dirty, slightly pub carpet. Taste is complex and smoky, marmalade. Lingering hoppy bitterness on the finish. Lovely finish actually. Very nice.

Bottle of Morrisons Ringwood Dark Ale from Byker, Newcastle. Copper coloured with a thin white head of foam. It has a slight burnt toffee, currant and marzipan flavour with malt and a roasted nutty finish. Pretty good.

Pyobon (1222) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - OCT 2, 2015
Clear deep amber brown with good off-white head. Pleasant aroma - mainly caramel / toffee with some herbal notes. Light body, rather fizzy. Taste starts with toffee with some rather lemony tang, dry herbal tea-like notes develop with some modest bitterness in finish. Pleasant enough.
