StueyD (1069) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - NOV 2, 2013
A dark reddish brown beer, weak head. A light roasted malt aroma with hints of dark fruit and bitter chocolate. Dry mouthfeel. A dry, roasted malt taste, dark fruits and bitter chocolate again, this time with roasted nuts. The fruitiness lasts into the finish. Tasted at the 2013 Norwich CAMRA beer festival. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mzaar (1366) - Varberg, SWEDEN - APR 24, 2013
Fat @ Abbotsford, Edinburgh. Mörkt rödbrun med smutsvitt skum. Tämligen svaga dofter för en brown ale, men där hittas mörk choklad, röda bär och en nötighet. Smakar bra. Smakar mörk choklad, vanilj, svag fruktighet. Gräddig och len munkänsla.

essexcalf (172) - Essex, ENGLAND - FEB 24, 2013
On cask at The Cambridge Blue, 16/02/13, during their winter beer fest. Dark, transparent chestnut. Light malty aroma. Lightly roasty malt, slightly tangy, light sweet, little hops. Slightly roasty, short aftertaste. OK drinking, but bit disappointing; not that roasty.

jmgreenuk (3580) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JAN 17, 2013
Cask at The Anchor, Birmingham. Poured a nice dark brown colour with a reddish hue and a frothy tan head. The aroma is rich fruity and surprisingly alcoholic. The flavour is medium bitter and follows the aroma with some nice smooth liquorice bitterness on the palate. A lovely heart warming beer. Ideal for consumption in front of a lovely open fire in the wintertime.

Cask, The Salmon, Leicester. Dark brown with a firm cream head. Aromas are coffee and dark chocolate with toffee and raisins. Smoky and woody with burnt toast. Flavours are burnt toast with dark chocolate and grittty coffee. Bitter and dry with base toffee malt. Peppery on the palate with a somewhat rough finish. Decent.
