Cask-conditioned at the Berkeley JDW, Bristol 28/12/08. Deep mahogany in colour with reddish hints and a foamy, off-white head that left lots of lacing down the glass. Aroma of caramel, milk chocolate, red fruits and vanilla. Flavour was also sweet, with a hint of roasty wood, spice and fruit, and a short bitter finish. A good winter beer.
