DruncanVeasey (7309) - NUNEATON, Top 23, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - OCT 20, 2014
500ml bottle from Teign Cellars, Newton Abbot. Dark ruby with a rocky beige foam piled with yeasty effervescence. Aroma of clove-like esters, sahti, biscuit and chocolate. Fizzy Bovril, roasted nut, milk chocolate and beefy malt flavour finished with smoke. Blackberry and rhubarb suggestions. Not bad but a bit mad with yeast.

maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - JUN 25, 2014
Bottled 14/06/14. A black beer with is ridiculously overcarbonated forming a volcanic expanding rocky whitish head. A smoky mild with hints of sweet fruitiness. A bit thin for its ABV but drinkable.

Bottle from the Hogsback Brewery shop. Pours mahogany with a tan head. Some good flavours going on with coffee, some biscuit notes and some red fruits too. Tasty stuff.

allmyvinyl (4006) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 7, 2013
In order to get more ratings done recently, I’ve been drinking a fair bit of pasteurised, force- carbonated, heavily-filtered supermarket beers. They’re mostly awful. So it’s nice to have a good bottle-conditioned British beer. And this is lovely! Big roasted aromas and flavours. Reddish brown pour, long lasting off-white head. Clean but bitter finish.

Leighton (11649) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 20, 2013
Bottle at home in London. Pours clear brown with a fine, tan cream head. Dry brown bread in the nose, suggestions of cocoa. Light to medium sweet flavor, some sweet chocolate, a bit of leather, dirt, dried fruits. Light to medium bodied with fine carbonation. Some tangy, dried out fruits to finish, further leathery notes, leafy and earthy bitterness, dry cocoa. Nice.

BlackHaddock (4042) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - DEC 27, 2012
500ml bottle conditioned: shared with my father on Christmas Eve 2012. Dark ruby red body with a good solid head of tan coloured foam on both half pint glasses. Malty molasses rule the nose and taste: you can choose the flavours from caramel to toffee via chocolate and coffee with some peat bog notes thrown in for good measure. Interesting and a fine Mild to boot. The alcohol level is high for a Mild, which might have helped with the body depth and richness of flavours.

prawlie (1175) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 30, 2012
500 mL bottle from Beers of Europe into a pint glass. Small bubbly head over dark red/brown, almost black beer. Light roast and chocolate aroma, very nice. Tastes of roasted malt, with a hint of chocolate and sweetness, followed by a dry aftertaste.

worldbeertaste (1676) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUN 2, 2012
A little disbalanced. Deep dark red with a tan light thin lacy head. Sweet smell of chocolate, roasted malt, dust, and a fruity cherry berry. Prickly mild oily medium body. Oily vinigry, start with a bitter roast dark chocolate finish.
