Still deep in the grip of Winter this sumptuous warming beer is sufficiently well hopped to provide balance, which can come in handy when thereís black ice around!

FatPhil (11511) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 24, 2007
Cask (Peterborough BF 2007) Almost black. Fairly hoppy aroma. Alas itís tinned veg. Once tasted, the veg aroma breaks thruí. Obviously a nice beer trying to break out. Alas, itís failing. Didnít finish it :-( Must rerate if possible.

Cask @ GBBF 2007, London. Dark black color with a average, frothy, good lacing, fully lasting, light brown head. Aroma is moderate malty, dark roasted, dark berries, moderate hoppy, orange, citrus. Flavor is moderate sweet and bitter with a long duration. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is flat. ;o))

Cask@GBBF2007. Dark ruby red colour, mediumsized beige creamy head. Aroma is sweet fruits and berries. Flavour is sweet nectary wood along with some caramel. Leaves a long and dry aftertaste of wood.

Cask, GBBF 2007. Very dark brown, thick tan head. Malty with roasted tints, some hoppy fruit to end the sniff. Mouth is malty roasted and some refreshing berry fruit. Quite nice

TheGrandMaster (2335) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - MAR 22, 2007
Pint pulled at the JDW Railway in Putney (London), black with a brown bubbly head. A roasted malt aroma, slightly woody with a bit of hoppiness. A smooth and light mouthfeel with a tannin roasted malt flavour. Bitterness in the finish.

MesandSim (7118) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 9, 2007
A Mes rate: Cask at The Gatehouse íSpoons. Nice black red colour that is just about translucent. Odd, spotty head with a tonne of bubbly lace. Aroma is barely there. Once in the mouth I am greeted with a totally unexpected full-on hit of citric hops. Itís actually rather nice. Bitter grapefruit finish. Much more hoppy than I would expect from a mild but an enjoyable drink.

leaparsons (8975) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 8, 2007
Cask, The Highcross, Leicester. Almost black with some red tints and a beige head. Aromas are roast malts with citrus and floral notes. Peppery, fresh and crisp. Flavours are lots of citrus for a dark beer with bitter coffee and liquorice then more bitterness. Dry on the finish. A bit different to the usual mild. Pretty good.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - FEB 19, 2007
UPDATED: DEC 1, 2011 Cask conditioned - handpump - Bricklayers Arms Luton. A black coloured beer with a nice thin whitish head and some lacing. The aroma is smoky and roasty. The taste has roasted malts but also really good hops. Very nicely balanced and very well brewed. Top stuff which bettered anything I had at the festival earlier. Score 3.9
Subsequent rating scored 3.1. Average becomes 3.5

DruncanVeasey (7768) - NUNEATON, 3rd, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - FEB 15, 2007
Dark ruby with persistent fluffy off-white suds. Layers of lace. Fragrant Turkish delight hop snout. Firm stouty roast and aromatic floral hoppiness. Rose and lemon. A generous twist of citrus. An odd but winning combination of flavours.
