Cask at Merchants, Rugby. Aroma of chocolate, coffee and vanilla. Taste is smooth, pretty alcoholic with a chocolate vanilla taste throughout. Pretty sweet finish. Nice stuff.

Not really to my taste. Overly strong flavoured, like Guinness original x100. Very alcoholic. Very thick and cloying couldn't drink more than one in an evening ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Near-black red beer with a thin beige head. Chocolate, fruit and malt in the scent. Flavour is tangy berries, light chocolate and a toasted malt flavour which comes through stronger in the finish. Rather nice.

500ml bottle from Home Bargains (uh?) at just over a quid - Dark Brown with slight tan head. Heavy nose with deep rich malty notes whilst being reasonably fruity, molasses and treacle, sticky sweet palate with chocolate and vanilla. Quite impressed with this for its price.

edsspoon (624) - Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAR 21, 2014
Pours dark red with a big reddish brown head which gradually fades to a ring. Fairly good lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate and oats. Taste of roasted malt, bitter cocoa, some sweetness and a hint of vanilla. A bit grainy and a dry finish.

McWorta (754) - LUXEMBOURG - MAR 14, 2014
Black deep ruby brown red in colour with a medium light tan fading head. Noses of soy, chocolate light tobacco aromas and hints of vanilla and earthy leather notes. Slight fizz offering a watery slick texture. Rather full bodied with a light sweet medium bitter chocolate taste. The finish is leaving a bitter cocoa light soy note on the palate, lasting medium long.

Bottle at home from B&M Watford. Dark red chestnut brown colour with cream head. Aroma is initially choc, earthy and berry fruits. Later some mud / earth comes through in the nose. Flavour is rounded chocolate, some caramel and an earthy roast. Quite sweet caramel and coco. Medium full rounded body, Fairly sweet finish.
