BeardedAvenger (742) - Addlestone, Surrey, ENGLAND - JUN 12, 2017
Cask at PoW, Farnborough. Light milky coffee and malts aroma. Dark cola brown. Decent beige head. Light bitter. Matches the aroma, only with cream not milk. A spiuciness comes through into the finish. Medium bodied. Creamy. Soft carbonation. Long, if muted, finish. Enjoyable. Best summarised by my third use of the word ’creamy’.

Cask. Creamy White good mostly lasting head. Dark red amber colour. Moderate malty and light hoppy roasted aroma. Moderate bitter flavor. Licorice and chocolate notes. Long moderate bitter finish. Creamy palate.

kermis (12869) - The Hague / Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - MAR 12, 2017
Cask at The Lyric, Soho. I was inspired to drink this purely because of the fantastic picture on the pump clip - a beautiful image of a surly looking penguin leaning over and inserting its beak deeply into this very brew. The penguin appears thoughtful, analysing the complexity of the beer through its beak more deeply than even Deanso could through his nose. The scene is portrayed against a picturesque backdrop of sharp snowy arctic mountains and a deep blue icy cold sea. The beer itself is clear brown with a tan head. The aroma explodes with notes of chocolate, dull malt, light roast and toffee. Flavour is moderate sweet and bitter. Light medium bodied with very soft carbonation.

ManVsBeer (10266) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 11, 2016
Oldham Beer Festival 2016. Very dark with a sweetened roasted malt aroma and taste, with the latter stated enough but not dominating its character.

harrisoni (18436) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 2, 2016
Cask gravity at London Drinker BF 2016. Very dark brown beer lasting beige head. some milk chocolate on the aroma. Slightly milky too. Milk chocolate malty in the mouth. Not much hop. Bit thin in mouth. Not my thing malty milk choc. Hmmm.

olliejobbins (1578) - Dorking, Surrey, ENGLAND - NOV 25, 2015
Pint from cask at gomshall mill. Pours a dark chestnut brown. Clear with a think white head that lasts. Aroma is wet straw, malts, slightly nutty and sweet. Thin watery mouth feel. But nice taste. Roasted malts and a little bitter coffee with a sweet finish. Hint of vanilla. The pump clip looked like the one in the photo but also had vanilla written at the bottom so maybe a different variant with vanilla added? Haven’t had the "normal" though so can’t judge.

Parmenion777 (276) - Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 22, 2015
Pours a clear, deep coppery colour with a medium creamy off white head. Roasted malt and dark chocolate aroma. Nice smooth roasted malty chocolate taste. A nice porter.
