On cask at Cloisters. Pours a dark ruby colour with a thick beige head. Aroma of caramel, coffee and roasty malt. Flavours of roasty malt, treacle, coffee and chocolate. Moderate carbonation. Nicely bitter. I really enjoyed this.

Recently had two poor Titanic beers, this my 11th one of there’s this year and what a quality ale. Had on cask at Cask Bar in Manchester, after Rochefort 8 it was a tough ask, but this was superb. Strong Walnutty/coffee nose, taste of roast, chocolate, bit of lemon. Chestnut coloured ale, very impressed indeed, definitely not what I expected.

Cask at Babington Arms. Grand stuff; deep brown with a red sparkle to it, beautifully fruity, nibbling dry finish with some cereal malt roughness helping it on its way. A real gem. Not really a mild.

UPDATED: JUN 15, 2008 Cask Handpump at ’The Harp’ Covent Garden, London 16-03-06. I thought the Harveys Sussex was unbeatable today until I tried this. A wonderful dark red beer with little head to speak of. The sweetness and bitterness are very good kept getting a pleasant vanilla taste with each slurp ’its difficult too sip’. Extremely good beer. Cask at the Nut Tree, Murcott, Oxon, 15-06-08 in the company of Loz, Casey and Traci Dark brown light mahogany colour with a slight off white creamy head. Taste is fresh, even a little earthy, bit citrussy some pithiness comes through, hoppy on the end, tangy, marvellous.

Bright red. Malty smells give way to lovely hops in the mouth that seem to last forever. Lemon, lychee and tobacco flavours.

Joeh (2049) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAY 22, 2006
Cask Conditioned at The Falcon (JDW), High Wycombe. Amber coloured. Aroma of fruit esters and some alcohol. Warm, fruit flavour, candy apple but well balanced by a touch of dryness. This had more alcohol and body than the 4% ABV might suggest.

Cask (@Three Legged Mare, York): Amber coloured, quite stable creamy off-white head; distinctive toasty and dry fruity nose; moderate to solid dry bitter flavour, quite light bodied, but not watery; lingering malty and dry bitter finish. Pleasant and tasty.....
