Cask: Seasonal - Winter.
Still deep in the grip of Winter this sumptuous warming beer is sufficiently well hopped to provide balance, which can come in handy when there’s black ice around!

ladnewton (1579) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 4, 2009
Cask at the Pembury Tavern, London on 3rd October 2009. Dark ruby, almost black body with thin brown head that dissipates to something very small. Richly flavoursome; hint of coriander in the initial aroma. Strong sharp malts and citric/herby hoppiness combine with a little smoke to provide an exquisite blend of flavours in the main climax of this beer. A long bitter finish.

Cask @ Freshie Formby. Looks like a dark lager, Wouldn’t have called it mild or porter. Taste was full of tart hoppy bitterness backed with some malt, Very typical of the beers from this excellent brewery, which also brew the house bitter & mild for the Freshie. I really enjoyed this beer.

albertane (377) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAR 8, 2008
Cask at the Newshouse, Nottingham. This mild has a wonderful richness of character, with lots of fruity and roasted malt as expected; however, there’s more going on here than just that. The barman at the pub described it not as a mild but as a porter, and it definitely has the best qualities of that style as well. Very good.

Finn (4711) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 16, 2008
Cask at The White Horse Parsons Green 4 Feb 08. Dark mahogany brown colored. A tiny disappearing head. Yummy aroma of fruit and candy. A bit disappointing paperish flavor. Dry fruity flavor.

Ungstrup (29992) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 15, 2008
Cask at GBBF 2007. A deep red - almost brown beer with a thin brown head. The aroma is sweet with notes of caramel and malt, and so is the flavor, leading to a slightly bitter finish.

dnas2 (705) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - OCT 31, 2007
Cask at The Briar Rose, Birmingham. Dark ruby-brown with an of-white short head. Sugar and roasted malts in the scent. Slight bitterness, a dry end, moderately hopped and slightly nutty with some flowers also present. A bit watery at the end, but good.

Christian (11628) - Odense, DENMARK - OCT 23, 2007
Very dark ruby beer with a medium sized, lasting off-white head. Malt, bread and toffee in the aroma, and a note of Munich malt. Rich and malty flavour with a bitter finish

Rastacouere (6154) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 3, 2007
Excellent off-white foam covers the dark brown body and stays there until the end. The nose is hugely grainy, but with dark grains like pumpernickel rather than plain pale ones. This is followed by a caramel earthiness that work quite well with the pumpernickel, but the finish appears roughly sweet and begs for more than these timid earthy hops. Medium bodied, fair carbonation.

FatPhil (10318) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 24, 2007
Cask (Peterborough BF 2007) Almost black. Fairly hoppy aroma. Alas it’s tinned veg. Once tasted, the veg aroma breaks thru’. Obviously a nice beer trying to break out. Alas, it’s failing. Didn’t finish it :-( Must rerate if possible.
