Mr_Pink_152 (700) - Lincoln, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - AUG 24, 2014
500ml bottle. Clear, dark mahogany body with a medium sized beige head. Aroma of roasted malt and liquorice. Flavour is sweet, roasted malt, liquorice and nutty. Thin body.

MichaelAwesome (4053) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - AUG 22, 2014
Can shared with McTapps offering a black look, some roasted malt and maybe a few nuts in the aroma. Due to its watery taste its a bit passionless and offers not really that what I would call a deep body. Like a golden Pilsner which was filtered to death.

McTapps (4053) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - AUG 22, 2014
Pours out of the can in a deep dark brown colour with low steady head and medium body. Aroma of malt, roast, torf, leaves, oak, wood, barley and wheat. Mild finish. Nothing special.

Can from 7-11 Taipei. Mellow dark bitter. Nut , malt and bittersweet taste. Not a bad mild at all and at 3.2% can be drunk all day.

SilverfoX (266) - Norfolk, ENGLAND - JUN 13, 2014
incredibly gassy bottle, powdered chocolate aroma, massive head that thankfully vanishes so you can see a (nutty) black body that tastes sweet and rich, fizzy and watery though still enjoyable.

Cantabrian (816) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - APR 4, 2014
Bottle. Too cold to start, witjh some chocolate, old wood shavings, butter and hazelnuts on the aroma and flavour. When warmer it did not improve much. Watery, not a mild out of this world.

mighty_meadow (202) - Kilwinning, SCOTLAND - FEB 18, 2014
At first I served this a bit too cold which had a negative impact on the beer. As it warmed slightly the beer improved considerably and started to give off all sorts of flavours, nuts, dark fruits, raisins, toffee all tickled the tastebuds while a slight hoppiness waited in the wings to give a subtle, bitter finish. All in all a nice beer if you do as it says on the label, serve cool NOT chilled.

s_hartshorne (1345) - wakefield, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 19, 2014
Bottle quality save. Black red colour shortlived tan head. Aroma is nutty and malty. Taste is v good bittersweet nutty strong sweet malt finish. Good silky medium body low carbonation. A cracker.
