Beer Festival 2012. Deep ambery brown colour with a small off-white foamy head. Aroma is sweet malts, some roasted notes, mild ripe fruits, berries and some slight tart notes. Flavour is chocolate, roasted malts, mild coffee as well as some dark fruits and mild raisins. Balanced and pleasant.
[Cask at the Nags Head, Reading] Deep ruby brown. Vinous aromaleads into a sweetish, fruity (blackberries?) flavour. Hints of dry smokiness in the finish. An OK mild which could do with the flavours being ramped up a bit. downender (8767) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 1, 2009
On gravity at Reading Beer Festival, 01/05/09. Dark brown with a moderate, off-white head. rich, fruit cake aroma with nuts and raisins, plus some caramel. Flavour was sweet, with Camp Coffee, chocolate and a slightly bitter finish. very similar to Hooky Dark and a pleasant enough drink. fonefan (50024) - VestJylland, DENMARK - JUN 6, 2008

Gravity at Reading Beer Festival 2 May 08. Dark brown colored. Weak aroma of coffee. A disappointing weak flavor of roasted malt. Leaves you with a taste of wet paper.

Cask (gravity dispense) at Reading Beer Festival, shared with Finn. Deep dark coloured body under a naked surface. Roasted armoa. Roasted and rounded fruit-malty taste. Dry finish. A middle-of-the road mild (02.05.2008). evilsoc (191) - WALES - MAY 13, 2008
Very faint chocolate malt aroma with some hay, faint tart fruit. low sweetness, slightly dry hop flavour towards the end. a good mild should be subtle but this is a bit dull. MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 10, 2008
A Mes rate: Gravicask at Reading Beer Festival.
Dark red brown with no head. Slightly funk & sour with some reasonable fruity malt. Faint apple note does it no favours sadly but ok over all if not a bit boring.
