Cask. Aroma dark chocolate malts and yeasty sugars. Pours dark brown with thin tan lacing. Taste retains the malts emphasis but there are fruit notes lurking so that the sweetness is medium and the finish is soft. A tingle of bitterness in the finish. Overall it does a lot with a little.

Deep red to dark in the glass plus slight tan head, little froth. Cocoa and rich nut base. Definitely mild - not stout and less weighty than its appearance suggested. Enjoyable and drinkable. The_Osprey (9140) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 25, 2015
Cask, gravity dispense at Twickenham Beer Festival 2015. Black, decent foamy tan head. Aroma is smokey chocolate. Body is medium, smooth, soft carbonation. Taste is light, smooth malts, bourbon biscuit, chocolate, light smoke and salt. A great mild. True to style and falls short of being a stout, but still flavourful. Nice balance. rlgk (18844) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 21, 2015
