Tried cask. Light malty aroma. Initial soapy taste is surpassed by malty ness. Rich dark colour. Lighter bodied than it looks. Lighter bready after taste with a short finish. Nice session ale.

Bottle from Waitrose. Pours chestnut with a cream head. Not a great, slightly skunky aroma. The taste is a bit skunky too with toffee malt notes and some metal.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle at home. Nice deep Amber colouring with off white head. Flavour falls a little flat for me, bland and lacking depth. Too carbonated with constant small bubbles detracting from the taste.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Mildly malty aroma. Dark brown appearance. Not too fizzy for a bottled beer. Quite syrupy with a deep lingering aftertaste.

20th Feb 2015: hand-pulled half-pint in my local Wetherspoons. Ruby with an off-white head that gave some heavy and impressive lacing. Red berries, hedgerow fruits and roasted maltiness in both the nose and taste. Semi-sweet with a caramel hint throughout, mild bitterness in the finish, I liked it.
