Cask @ JDW, Victoria Station. The pour’s deep amber brown with a tiny off-white head. The nose is roasted grain, chocolate malts, some coffee. The taste is sweet coffee creamer, some butter, more chocolate and roasted wood. Toffee, mild berry on the finish. The body’s a bit thin and watery. Overall, fairly decent.

SilkTork (5279) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 28, 2014
Oct/Nov 2012. JDW, Rochester. Dark amber. A traditional robust premium bitter - plenty of bittering hops in a strong malty base. A little too bitter for me.

Nice dark colour with a strong but pleasant aroma. The taste is very malty with a strong caramel back taste, there is also a hint of toffee. Having said that it is very pleasant and the palate and after taste is very nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from Bellingers Garage, Grove, Near Wantage, Oxon purchased and consumed at home 28.08.12 Pours chestnut, good clarity with off-white head. A little nutty, some bitterness, earthy with just a little citrus maybe. Soft in the mouth a little plappy as Loz would call it, I think that I think lacks a little freshness. Fine.

Malty ale with a sweet finish. Toffee is the most evident flavour, but not overstated.
