Beer Festival 2012. Pitch black colour, brown head. Aroma is nutty, fruity, nectary and also has some mild liquorice. Flavour is spicy with hops, liquorice and more hops.
Cask at Craft Beer Co, London on 13th April 2012. Thick black. Rich fruity aroma. Roast/burnt malt and spices in mouth; very bitter with smoke notes. Bitterness and rich fruits in the aftertaste. Velvety mouthfeel with good body. Great stuff!

Cask at the Euston Tap, London. Pours black-brown with a very tight, creamy tan head. Lovely aroma, lots of rich roast, charred malts, pine and dark chocolate. Medium to big sweet flavor with well enough roast and hops to balance it out. Very roasty with charred wood, grass, sticky pine, dry chocolate, some dark and burnt sugar and earth. Medium to full bodied with fine carbonation. Good condition. Mild warming finish with lots of dry and roasty malts, scorched earth, charcoal, ash, dark chocolate, tobacco, light grapefruit, heavy grass and pine. Has a good bit of sticky, resinous bitterness. The dark, roasted malt character is very complex with lots of nice angles to it. Burnt wood, grass, roasted malts and baking cocoa linger on. Very solid beer on all fronts. downender (8592) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - APR 21, 2012
Cask-conditioned at the Seven Stars, Bristol 9/04/2012. Near black in colour with a slight tan head. Big, hoppy aroma of citrus and green herbs. Flavour had a touch of sweetish chocolate, roasted malts and citrus fruit, with a lingering, dry finish. Very good. madmitch76 (24564) - , Essex, ENGLAND - APR 15, 2012

On tap at the Craft. Opaque black beer, little pale tan head. Mild dark malts with a little lacto and coffee. Mild chocolate. Nice hops - juicy grapefruit orange and lemon. Semi dry finish. Unsurprisingly well hopped given the Steel City boys involvement. Lets hope we get some more Steel City in Laaaaaahndaaahn soon. Tom Cadden says ’Hello Boys!’
