COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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 thereís black ice around!

TheGrandMaster (2334) - 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 (7119) - 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 (7934) - 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 (8574) - 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 (7098) - NUNEATON, Top 13, 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.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 5, 2007
Cask@The Market Porter, Borough, London. Deep brown. Some caramel sweetness and roasted malt characters come through. Also has the typical Titanic hoppyness, quite fruity, with some light kiwi fruit.

Joeh (2038) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAR 16, 2006
Cask, Hop Pole, Aylesbury. Served too warm. Very dark brown with a tan head. Very fruity aroma, fine dark fruits and fruit cake. Flavour is at first sweet, malty, fruity yeast character but a touch dry and astringent. Didnít seem very bitter to me, even if itís supposed to be bitter for the style.

Mungo (2472) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - MAR 2, 2006
UPDATED: MAR 28, 2007 Mar 07 Cask conditioned @ Giddy Bridge (JDW), Soton. Ruby coloured. Hints of roast and unexpectedly bright and zesty citric hops which worked quite well and seem much more pronounced than my last sample. Slightly thin and cardboardy in mouth - not in best condition but I can imagine this would be pretty good in better condition. 3.2
Mar 06 Cask conditioned @ Guide Dog, Soton. Some light roasty flavours but mostly sweet malt with hops in the background. There is a yeasty fruitiness which doesnt entirely fit. 3.1
