A rating from an old notebook. Bottle. Dark brown with a thin off-white head. A sweet and malty old ale with plenty of dark fruits and chocolate. Not as richly flavoured as some other similar beers but still a very tasty beer. Scopey (14736) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 25, 2011
Bottle from Tesco Danestone, Aberdeen. It pours dark ruby-brown, with a thin foamy beige head and low carbonation. The nose is bitter chocolate, sweet dark fruit, apple and coffee beans. The taste is bitter chocolate, coffee, blackcurrant, blackberry, plum, currant, apple, toffee and burnt malt, with some dryness in the finish. Nice balance of flavours. A very tasty brew indeed. swooper (1247) - Cambridge and Kladno(Czech Rep.), Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - MAY 5, 2011

Bottle from Tesco. Sour malty aroma. dark brown colour with bubbly beige head. Grassy treacle caramel malt flavour, quite smooth. Tastes better than it smells. wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 28, 2010
from old notes Deep brown-black hue, clear; light tan foam. Toasty, roasty and lightly nutty aroma with figs, plums and rum lollipops in a fruity-sweet combination; dry tobacco leaf. Blueberry-like tannins and acidity are offset by a table sugar sweetness; very jammy, almost overripe; minimal roastiness and just a little puckering. Creamy texture, fullish, soft carbonation. 50 cl bottle. rmasa (324) - Vantaa, FINLAND - APR 14, 2010
