DruncanVeasey (8326) - Nr NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAR 4, 2017
Spring Spoonsfest 2016. Piss like most Batemans beers. Black piss with a tenacious beige head.That Fenland ditchwater/Wisbech swimming pool water flavour again (see Lazy Dog) with added burnt paper and confectionery liquorice. Actually dark mahogany. Tentative tan head. Nose of not much: liquorice and charcoal at a push. Flimsy body. Awful.

UPDATED: APR 2, 2016 Very dark brown. Head off white. Malty aroma with dark fruits and strong molasses. Fair strength with light liquorice and chocolate. Mild on palate. Overall grand but not as good as I expected.

downender (8935) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 28, 2016
Cask-conditioned at the Commercial Rooms (JDW), Bristol March 2016. Dark brown in colour, with a slight, off-white, head. Aroma of sweetish, dark fruits, molasses and a touch of leafy hop. Flavour had more sweet malts,a touch of toastiness and a moderately bitter finish. Good.

2.6
Hippoman (646) - Durham, ENGLAND - MAR 28, 2016
Cask at The Water House (JDW), Durham, £2.15/pint.

Unsurprisingly given the branding this is a black beer, topped with a smooth, light tan head that laces well. The nose is rather understated with some sweet caramel malts to be found. The taste has sharp, acrid, twiggy and woody flavours as well as dark chocolate. The overall effect is jarring and for me not enjoyable.

2.9
ManVsBeer (10973) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 24, 2016
Cask @ The Sir Norman Rae, Shipley. Very dark, with a creamy off-white head. Very mild tasting, with some extremely light tasting dark malts, but you wouldn’t call it flavoursome. Nevertheless it’s a very palatable mild.

3.4

Cask @ The Lord Moon of the Mall, London. Clear dark brown with a beige head. Aroma is sweet, malty, roasted malt, light licorice and light chocolate. Flavor is medium sweet and moderate bitter. Sweet and moderate bitter finish. 230316
