jjsint (1130) - Ely, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - MAR 14, 2015
Cask at the Three Cups, Bedford. Ruby with small off-white head. Caramel, berries, a bit of earth and fallen leaves in the nose. Taste starts as a typical malt bomb, but has a decent hoppy bitter tang in the finish. Concentrated bitter aftertaste. Not bad.

mt_hall (142) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 18, 2014
Bottled. A clear, dark red-brown colour with a small light brown head that soon disappeared completely. Lots of malt on the nose and a touch of licorice. Flavours are clean and pleasant thought don’t really stand out; a breadiness is the most noticeable aspect. The finish is dry but not bitter. Pretty good.
