@ Market Porter. Slightly amberish brew. The aroma is, sadly, a bit off with pedio and sourness. The taste is more chocolatey, with a hint of tartness.

Cask conditioned at The Black Horse, Whitby. Brown to amber with white head. Darker roast with a goodly amount of hop, a decent palate, quite a reasonable bitter.

red/brown in colour. Aromas are biscuit malts and toffee. This is quite a dry beer with some toffee and fruit character. Shame it is one dimensional. I would be bored if I had to drink more than a pint of this.

Halifax & Calder Beer Festival 2015. Very dark reddish-brown with some chocolate in its aroma. More sweet than anything else in its taste, but the chocolate comes alive again in its aftertaste. Has a lower bitterness.

Maria (10212) - Thisted, DENMARK - APR 2, 2007
Copper color and a nice head. Aroma of caramel and fruit. The flavour is somewhat thin, but I sense notes of roasted malt and a bit of fruit. The bitterness is reasonable OK. 1533

Cask Stillage at the Arts Centre, Southport 19/09/2003 Dark with some alcohol and malt. Quite rich on the palate with some chocolate and a crisp slightly bitter finish.

Cask conditioned Handpump Edgar Wallace London A dark brown to mahogany coloured beer with a whitish loose head. The aroma has some sweet and sour treacle. There is treacle and licorice in the mouth. A bit over sweet but then some soap comes in. An odd tasting beer. Not 100% sure this is as intended.

downender (8659) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 22, 2007
Gravity dispense at the White Lion, Bristol 22/9/07. Dark amber colour with no head. Rich aroma of red fruit and malt. Flavour was a bit thin but was of sweet malt with a smooth, bitter finish. Ok.

larsga (7539) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 13, 2013
Big offwhite coarseish head doesn’t last. Clear amber body with carbonation. Earthy caramelly aroma with nutty syrupy notes. Dry-sweet earthy caramelly syrupy taste with rye crisp bread notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Dryish earthy musty aftertaste with spicy notes. Odd beer with little flavour, as though it’s missing something. (0.5l bottle, at Green’s, Whitby.)
