Cask at The New Oxford, Manchester. A nut-brown beer with a thin tan head. The aroma has strong notes of caramel as well as medium notes of malt and light notes of roasted malt.

30th June 2010. On taop at the Kings Head freehouse Tollesbury, Essex. Clear brown beer. Not much head. Soft smooth palate. Sweet hazlenuts, red fruit in the undertone. Mellow chocolatey coffee. Some coconut as well. Finishes soft with some sweeter red fruit coming to the fore. An outstanding English draft beer - best I have had in a very very long time.

Theydon_Bois (16423) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 5, 2012
Cask at the Sussex Arms, Twickenham Green - 30/09/12. Dark mahogony brown with a thin han head. Nose was a little disappointing and muted. Roast malts and nuts. Tasted much better with dark roast malt prominent, hazelnut and light coffee tones. Medium to light in a body a little too thin and watery, another let down on this beer. Drinkable but could have been a few notches better!

FatPhil (13289) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 21, 2012
500ml bottle (Drink Shop, Tallinn)
Super-nice hazelnut aroma. Some cocoa powder too. Sweet, sticky, cocao powder body. Taste also cocao powdery. Nice and drinkable, but the powdery nature of this is perhaps a bit too much.
