Cask at The Bell in Waltham st Lawrence. Opaque almost violet hue to this dark beer. Raisins and port. A little sweet but some bittering hops make a drinkable pint.

JorgeLee (1294) - Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 12, 2013
Cask at the Harp WC2. Dark brown colour, fairly minimal head. A good mild, chewy malt, some licorice and caramel. Modest hop but enough to keep it balanced, certainly not over sweet. A nice pint.

madmitch76 (16335) - , Essex, ENGLAND - AUG 15, 2010
15th July 2010. Chelmsford Beer Festival. Opaque dark brown beer. No real head but has a little carbonation. Light semi dry palate. Fresh tasting dark malt. A little coffee is immediately noticeable. Chocolate too but much subtler. Well balanced light orange hop with even a little bubblegum coming through. Nice flavour profile - a tad overdry but a decent mild.

Live rating. Drinking now at the Southampton Arms, London on 18th May 2010. Cask via hand pump. Deep brown-red with part lacing white head. Caramel background with spicy kick - slightly herbal and quite aromatic. Late, but satisfying bitterness in aftertaste.
