(Cask at Angleterre, 20131229) The beer poured dark brown and clear. Its head was small, long lasting, dense and almost white. Aroma had malts, molasses and English hops. Palate was medium bodied with low carbonation. Flavours were malts, caramel, sweet English hops, earth and bitterness. Aftertaste was malty, grassy and bitter. A nice malty English style brew.

Pint on Cask from Three Legged Mare, York, England (£2.50):
Dark chocolate and some sugar hits you upfront, with some mild hops and a few earthy malts as well. There is a few fruits lingering as well as a creamy, roasted malt aroma.
Dark ruby to black with a quarter centimetre tall head that is a creamy white and holds quite well, leaving lots of lacing on the glass too.
Dark malts and some stronger cocoa make an appearance along with a sweet, almost creamy taste of chocolate and some coffee. There is the roasted malts from the nose as well, plus a nutty flavour and some barely and fruits towards the end.
Soft carbonation on top of a medium to full body and mild bitterness with a generally smooth feel on the mouth and some faint sweetness.
Dark and quite sweet with a great body and quite a rich, flavoursome taste that is very easy to drink and quite enjoyable. One of the better cask beers Iíve had and another I wouldnít might trying a bottle of in future.

Cask at the Yorkshire Terrier. Pours darkly ruddy orange with a tan head. Aroma of dark fruit, slight roast malt. Full bodied or nearly. Flavor is lighter dark fruit with maybe a hint of chocolate. Or not. Finishes slightly on the sweet side with enough hop to keep it tasty. Nice.
