COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular. Also available bottle conditioned.
A wonderful, rich, malty beer. It has masses of flavor and a slightly sweet finish. Dangerously drinkable!
Ingredients: Pearl pale malt, crystal malt, chocolate malt, wheat malt. Goldings and Challenger hops.

Mungo (2471) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - JUL 5, 2007
Cask conditioned @: Guide Dog, Soton. Malty toffee with mild roasty chocolate and toast flavours. Mild hops in the surprisingly light finish. A bit of a scratchy feel in the mouth from the roastiness which isnt helped by the light body.

DruncanVeasey (7316) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAY 25, 2007
Bottled. Ornately lacy mahogany pour with a well-retained creamy beige head. Richly malty, buttery caramel snout with an inviting whiff of barrel. Creamily chocolatey, walnutty and wholemeal-flavoured with a punch of biiterly roasty malt and peppery hops in the finish. Deep, silky and luxurious.

DonMagi (5596) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 20, 2007
Raw biscuit malts, caramalt is notably present, some fruit and a hint of candy sugar sweetness, but you really need to serch of that one. Taste straight up hits me as alot thinner than expected, tough sweet, roasted malts and bitter malts in the finish. Really quite disapointed actually as i was expecting a full bodied spicey fruity esb insted i got a high % normal bitter.

Stine (1629) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 26, 2006
Cask at the Turf Tavern, Oxford. Quite a dark bitter with a strong aroma and flavor of chocolate malt. This particular bitter had a very nice, smooth and chewy mouthfeel that i enjoyed. Not outstanding, but decent.

StueyD (1239) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - MAR 21, 2006
A dark, reddish brown beer with a frothy beige head. The nose is strong, sweet and malty with a touch of ripened fruit. The taste is again malty, slightly bittersweet, with hints of caramel and liquorice, and a slightly dry, zesty finish. The aftertaste is long, with the sweetness of malt and the zestiness towards the end. (Bottle - purchased at The Real Ale Shop, Branthill Farm, near Wells-next-the-Sea, Norfolk).

Cask Handpump at the Penny Black, Northwich (JDW) 08/06/2004 Mid brown coloured with some alcohol present. Fruity aroma. Crisp slightly roasted full malt finish.

harrisoni (14141) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 24, 2005
Cask gravity at Kent beer festival. I was looking forward to trying this, but was a little disappointed. Ruby colour malty nose with some fruit. odd flavour in mouth maybe needed a bit more time to settle. Bit sweet

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 14, 2005
Cask@Catford Beer Festival. Wholemeal maltyness, really nice and soft, and lightly sweet. A little toasty, with a slightly citric, earthy aromatic hop finish. Pretty subtle and light, but works nicely.
