Cask at Bricklayers Arms Yorskhire Festival, 27th February 2009. Dark ruby brown with a foamy head. Rich chocolate and fruit flavour. Nice and tasty. Almost perfumy at the finish and drys the tongue well. A good quality dark beer.

2008-11-11, Cask Conditioned at J. D. Wetherspoon - The Knights Templar, London, 6-4-6-3-12=31
Dark brown color, almost black, with red shades; thin frothy head. Very light caramel and chocolate aroma. There is some caramel and chocolate flavor, malt, residual sweetness and a refreshing touch, without the aggressivity of the last time I tried it; correct bitterness. It won the Brewing Industries International Award Gold Medal, but Iím not impressed, pleasant anyway.

2008-10-20, Cask Conditioned at Doric Arch, London, 5-3-6-2-11= 27
Very dark brown color. Aroma of roasted malt, ashes. Medium body, with clearly a roasted malt flavor, getting stronger (and more bitter) at the end; dry mouthfeel of aggressive coffee. A fair beer, but I donít fancy so much this bitter coffee flavor.

wheresthepath (2139) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - DEC 20, 2008
[Cask at Back of Beyond, Reading] Deep reddish-brown with a foamy off-white head. Smells and tastes like a stout with lots of toasty malt flavours evident. Initially very enjoyable, but by the end the bitterness had grown to a level where it was detracting from my enjoyment of the beer. Not a bad effort all the same.

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 (9325) - 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 (9689) - 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.

UPDATED: OCT 10, 2008 Dark brown/black half pint at local beer festival. Pours with no head and looks a bit like flat cola! Taste is strong hops and yeast, a little sweetness and caramel followed by a pleasant bitter after taste. Very enjoyable.
