COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask, Festival Special;
This new, deep-ruby-coloured beer has been brewed exclusively for this Wetherspoon real-ale festival. The use of dark chocolate and black malts creates a powerful, dark flavour, while the generous quantities of wheat malt give a smooth, biscuity note. A gentle hop bitterness completes the rich, opulent character.

tombyars (1354) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - MAR 11, 2012
Sampled this in the Counting House, Glasgow (JDW) in November 2010. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear dark mahogany in colour with ruby tints at the edges and a thin white head. Poor lacing and a thin pleasant mouthfeel. Roasted malt grains in the aroma. Dark malt complex gives varied flavours with initial black malt burnt toast note. Digestive biscuit cheesecake base leads to a blackcurrant fruit flavour with roasted chestnuts coming through. Dusty hop flowers give a bitter resin tang in the aftertaste. Finish is dry with walnuts and leather evident. An interesting porter but not in the UK style. Worth seeking out. Highly recommended.

Cask handpull at Shakespeare Head, JDW, Holborn. Very dark brown colour with lasting beige head. Slightly spicy brown malty beer. Itís got some choc, but mostly coffee which is lovely. Itís good. Drinkable, likeable. Good big flavours but balanced. Yep, I liked it. Touch of harshness and bitter which is good.

Leighton (10786) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 8, 2010
Cask at The Central Bar, JDW. Pours an opaque, light ruby-brown with a lingering, light beige head. Holds an enticing dark malt aroma with perhaps some floral hops. Flavor has moderate sweetness, faint roast, and some interesting flowery notes. Light to medium in body with fine carbonation. The finish is light roasted malts, faint mocha and light, dry bitters. Pretty nice brew.

maeib (8664) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - NOV 7, 2010
Cask Conditioned Handpump Eastgate Northampton. A dark and hazy chestnut coloured beer with an off-white thickish head. A nice bitter beer with good hops. The aroma is too thin though. A pleasant sweet edge to balance the hops. Nice tasting beer.

imdownthepub (10141) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 7, 2010
Cask conditioned at a Wetherspoons. Black with tan head. Whew, this is quite unusual, but quite exciting too. Initially pretty hoppy, bright and tangy with quite a succulent character, then comes a chocolatey bitterness, it all seems to work in reverse to normal. Really quite enjoyable.

From cask. Pours slight tan and creamy yet with a dense head. Roasted dark malty, breadish and acidic roasted. Breadish too. Crisp hoppy and fruityflavoured. Simple.
