UPDATED: DEC 9, 2008 Cask-conditioned at the Commercial Rooms JDW, Bristol. Mahogany coloured with a decent beige head. Big fruit, roasted malt and toffee aroma. Flavour was sweet, with plenty of caramel, dried fruit, chocolate and earthy hops, before a long bitter finish. Very good.

JoeMcPhee (9169) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 20, 2008
Deep brown-ruby tinted beer with a thin off-white head. Aroma is quite sweet and malty with a prominent dried date/date honey character along with some molasses and dried fruitiness on the back end. Dried plums. Warming really intensifies the sweet character and brings out a touch of licorice as well. Quite sweet but it works very well.

Fin (9214) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 22, 2008
Cask, gravity dispense at Merton Summer Beer Festival July 18th and 19th 2008 (had this on the Saturday morning when all was quite and after icing up , this was quite nice for breakfast at 07:30) Pours mid brown with some woodiness hazlenut and roasted flavours and aromas floating around. The maltiness starts to make its mark and there is a tangy enduring bitterness, its a fine beers but not quite the beer I anticipated.

Fukito (1001) - Santiago, CHILE - DEC 26, 2007
Cask @ York Brewery, november 07. Clear, deep dark copper color with a medium, light tan head. Deep fruity flavor with some very slight earthy hop notes. Ends with a dried fruits touch. Deep, profound, rasiny fruity aroma. Medium to full palate, caramel feeling but ends quite dry and earthy. Excellent strong english ale.
