[Pint, J.D.W. Cuthbert Brodrick - Leeds, 07/01/10] Mild coffee maltiness on the nose. Dark fruit and coffee roasted malt flavour. Body could do with being a touch thicker. Bitter finish. I thought this was a porter when drinking it.

Near-opaque brown beer with a thin head. The (light) smell and taste are both malty chocolate with a dash of caramel. A bit lightweight and watery but decent all the same.

mr_h (5643) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - APR 23, 2017
Cask, quarterly ale, 1/2 pint, hand-pulled at Crystal Palace, Glasgow on 14 Jan 2017, toffee, malty aroma, deep chestnut brown with a ruby tint, then creamy beige head and good patterned lacing, peaty, malty, creamy, smoked malty finish.

Cask Pint at Wibbas Down (JDW), Wimbledon, London in Feb 2010 - Black in colour. Malty; coffee, light roast malts, caramel, some liquorice, hint of chocolate. Fruity; sour fruits, berries?. Hoppy; grassy hops. Sweet malty with sour fruit/hops. Dry finish. Liked this. Very drinkable. (2010-02)

berkshirejohn (6534) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 30, 2015
Cask at the Prince Arthur (JDW), Fleet. A mahogany pour with a ring of white head; earthy malt aroma; taste of deeply roasted - almost burnt - malts, and raw sugar cane; with a dry finish. Rather good.

mR_fr0g (12579) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 14, 2015
Cask at the moon under water Watford jdw. Dark mahogany brown coloured pour with ruby red highlights. Thin light cream halo of head. Aroma is roast malts, coco, mineral, some nail Polish remover. Flavour is composed of bitter roast, caramel, charred wood, earthy wet wood, coco powder. Palate is semi sweet, some mineral moderate slightly creamy carbonation. Bit of alcohol in the finish.

a_cross (639) - Poole, Dorset, ENGLAND - FEB 21, 2015
Cask at The Square Peg, Birmingham; dark brown, thick creamy off white head; aroma is roast malt and liquourice; taste is roast malt, soft dark chocolate, liquorice and hint of dark fruit; dry, slightly bitter finish; defiantly old school goodness, and on a personal note evocative of many a quality evening in the Lord Rodney’s Head, Whitechapel in the mid 90s.

Towey1989 (2942) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 14, 2015
Cask at The Green Dragon, Leek (JDW) Clear dark brown colour with a thin off white head. Aroma of roasted malt, dark fruits and caramel. Taste of roasted malt and coffee, plus dark fruits like raisin, prune and a little smokiness. Light bodied and soft carbonation. A dry, roasted finish. Not bad.

The_Osprey (8216) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 1, 2015
Cask at JDW. Dark red brown, hazy, still, big brown head. Aroma is toffee-ish. Body is medium, touch of carbonation, smooth. Taste is light and sweet, a little ash, breathy malt, no real bitterness. Comes across as a mild, a touch watery.
