onystrom (1334) - Magellan Hunter! - Skanderborg, - JAN 2, 2012
Draft. Dark color with small white head. Aroma is licorice, roasted malt. flavor is licorice and some faint sour winy wood note. Backlog

Grumbo (4253) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - OCT 20, 2017
Cask at The Red Lion, Skegness. Pours almost black with a small beige head. Aroma of dark fruits, toffee, chocolate, liquorice, asted malt and nut. Medium sweetness, moderate bitterness. Medium body, oily texture, soft to flat carbonation.

theprof (1364) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - FEB 16, 2017
Cask. Coffee scented for those who favour hazelnut coffee. Pours dark with little else of note. Taste sweet caramelized malts prominent but the nuts lurk (it’s just what they do.) For connoisseurs try drinking this earlier in a festival than towards the end.

Cask Pint at Wibbas Down (JDW), Wimbledon, London in May 2010 - Very Dark Brown in colour. Malty; roast malts, caramel, hint of coffee; nutty?, hint of liquorice. Sour fruity; berries. Hoppy; some hop bitterness. Roast malty and mildly sour fruity. Dry roasty bitter finish. (2010-05)

rlgk (18843) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 28, 2016
Sample at GBBF 2016, Wednesday. Black beer with a small beige head. Fruity caramel aroma, raisins, figs. Malty fig flavor, citrus, grass notes. A bit strange.

Tried at the brewery. Dark almost black colour with a tan head. Roasted malt aroma and a touch of fruit. Taste is roasted malt. A touch musty.

Cask in the Generous Britton, Loghborough. Mahogany with a tan head. Fruity with light vinegar. Past its best. One to retry.
