JKaranka (57) - Cardiff, WALES - NOV 17, 2015
Decent mild. Pours mid-dark, chestnut brown. Trough the sparkler it has a tight cream-coloured head. Not much aroma, some malt, some caramel. Flavour follows the same pattern: somewhat sweet, caramel, hint of nuts. There is a bit of bitterness to compensate, but this is a mainly malty easy-to-drink pint. The best part of it is its body: a fairly full body, rounded and satisfying for the abv. Overall a decent, basic, beer that is easy to drink and does not ask the drinker too much.

Travlr (22057) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - OCT 2, 2015
Cask at the Imperial in Worcester. Deep maroon brown color, beige head with solid lacing. Aroma of plums dipped in chocolate. Taste has cocoa and raisins. Tasty.

FatPhil (14523) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 19, 2015
Cask (Fat Cat, Norwich) (5:4-:5:3-:10=2.7--)
Dark, but very brief head. Sweet and bland and flat. Some burnt caramel, lots of boredom. Almost certainly not at its prime, and clearly has potential. Shame to have a brewery tick like this, should rerate.
