Dover Beer Fest. Dark, tingly premium bitter/strong ale. A rolling hop and malt experience which delights and intrigues in a deep and delicious manner. A very yummy beer. chriso (7586) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 25, 2006
UPDATED: APR 18, 2006 Cask (gravity dispense) at White Cliffs Beer Festival, February 2006. Attractive rich ruby colour. Plenty of berry fruit on the nose. Also some marzipan and a hint of smoky malt. Licorice comes through on the palate with more plummy fruit and touches of caramel. Fairly dry and nicely balanced. Full mouthfeel. Smooth and mellow. Quite a classy drop.

[Cask at Charlie’s Bar, Copenhagen] A nut brown beer with a nice long lasting brown head. The flavor is sweet fruity combined with strong notes of toffee, but also hints of hops. The flavor is sweet with notes of caramel, malt, and toffee. Nice. tiggmtl (4544) - East York, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 18, 2005
Strong, nutty, fruity, aroma with notes of liquorice and dark malt roastiness. Clear copper-brown body with decent and lasting, fine-bubbled, off-white head. Thick and malty chocolate flavour is nutty in character with some lightly salty, smoky, liquorice notes and roasty finishing bitterness. Rich, creamy, medium-full body with lively carbonation that awakens the tastebuds. I enjoyed this one in the bottle previously and find it to be every bit as satisfying on cask. Cask at GBBF 2005. leaparsons (10710) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 29, 2005
