mike_77 (6590) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - DEC 20, 2016
Dark brown colour with red hue. Aroma and flavour have a jammy, fruity sweetness. Sweet in a pleasant and sessionable way.

3.4
thomat (3830) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 20, 2015

evergreen0199 (3320) - Northwood, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 19, 2015
Cask at GBBF 2015, Olympia, London. A dark ruby/brown coloured pour with a medium off white head on top. Roasty, malty, dark fruit aroma. Tastes similar, roasty, malty, dark fruit, slight sweetness.

3.1
DruncanVeasey (8225) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JUN 13, 2015
Cask, The Felix, Nuneaton. Thick capped beige on dark ruby. Unusually plum-forward fruity dark beast with burnt wood and souring unripe nectarine aspects. Nose of jammy plum and Flemish red. Cranberry and digestive crumbs. Similar to Redds Cranberry in flavour profile. Odd but good. And clearly not a mild.

3.5
tungsten (2) - - JUN 12, 2015 does not count
Murky beer with pleasing, earthy undertones. Comes in rather tangy at first but mellows over time

3.2
BeerViking (4710) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 4, 2015
Cask at the White Swan JDW, deep red-brown with a lasting fine head, malty and slightly tart-fruity nose, rich and lightly woody and roasty, with hints of sloe and liquorice, and a firm earthy bitterness.

Towey1989 (2705) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 13, 2015
UPDATED: DEC 20, 2016 Cask at The Green Dragon, Leek (JDW) Clear dark brown colour with frothy off white head. Aroma of roasted malt, fruit and a little chocolate. Taste of blackberry, raisin, some red berries, slight biscuit, a little roasted malt and subtle chocolate. Medium bodied and soft carbonation. A slight tangy, fruitiness in the finish. A bit too fruity and fruit and nutty tonne nice to me. Ok.
