Gravity dispense at the First Windsor Craft Beer Festival, W&E brewery, 19/09/15. Dark mahogany brown topped with a decent head of beige bubbles. Nose is light ash, toffee, cocoa powder, earthy, fruit loaf. Taste comprises chocolate, nutty, dark malt, hint of aniseed, fruit rinds. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Solid mild.

niquillis (2752) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 19, 2015
Cask at Barristers Bar, Bolton. Pours dark chestnut brown with light tan head. Looking forward to this but it may have been on the turn. Some dark fruit, lacking in flavour. Average.

mr_h (5949) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - JUL 12, 2015
Cask, hand-pulled, Bon Accord (25 May 2015), chocolate malt aroma with increasing coffee on warming, very dark chocolate brown, thin beige head, excellent lacing, sweet chocolate with some coffee, oily, malty aftertaste

ianwelby (1525) - SCOTLAND - MAY 27, 2015
Opaque black beer with a creamy beige head. Very light malt aroma. Flavour is light and chocolatey with a bitter, toasted malt finish following it up. Body is a touch watery but other than wishing there was a bit more kick to the smell I can?t find much to fault. Very drinkable.

redders1974 (1630) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - MAR 10, 2015
UPDATED: SEP 29, 2016 After seeing other reveiws off this can only assume I had a badly kept pint poured jet black with bubbly quickly dissapearing head tastes like it had all the ingredients of a decent pint just not kept right drunk on cask at the hornet in Rochdale.

RichTheVillan (8248) - Birmingham, West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 24, 2014
Cask at the Wellington; dark mohogany brown pour with a frothy off white head, aroma has dark fruit, pleasant malt taste, with fruit, a hint of vanilla.

Beese (3210) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 29, 2014
Cask gravity at the Watford Beer Festival 2014. Poured a very dark brown, with a rocky, off white head. Aroma of roasted malt, dark fruit and biscuit. Smooth palate. Dried fruit, spice and burnt malt in the flavour. Finish was brown bread, dark malt and straw.

stravale (3145) - Co. Westmeath, IRELAND - NOV 17, 2014
Cask @ Belfast Beer Festival [141114]
Dark caramel brown, tan beige head, good lacing
Aroma of fairly burnt roasted malts, soft earthy roast
Taste of roasted malts, some dark sweet malt underneath, soft coffee grounds, touch of savoury yeast, good flavour for abv
Palate - Medium light body, good palate. Finish of toasty bread, quite bitter roast
Overall - Usually like less roast in a mild but this was decent
