Cask, Slug & Lettuce, Leicester. Aromas are dark syrup and toffee with earthy, herbal notes and hints of barnyard. Lightly smoky with brown sugar. Flavours are weetabix and toffee with raisins and damp florals notes. A bit flat and sweet for me.
Cask at Cloisters Bar, Edinburgh, Scotland. Clear chestnut, beige head. Roasted coffee and chocolate, plenty of acetaldehyde. Dry, medium bitterness. DavyK (135) - East Kilbride, SCOTLAND - MAY 31, 2017
Bottle at hotel in Peebles. Aroma of burnt malt and sour mash, but not too strong. Light in mouth, goes down smoothly. Quite refreshing for the style and nice depth of flavour for the ABV.

A malty and light sweet aroma, a little bit alcoholic, some coffee. The pale beige creamy head has a normal size, the body is nearly black. A malty and light bitter taste, coffee during the finish with a little bit of acidic. The body is medium strong, creamy and fizzy with a lively carbonation.

Draft at Edinburgh airport Wetherspoons. Light bitterness but quite heavy body. This was surprisingly lacking in flavour but easy to knock back. Needs more depth. Idiosynkrasie (7533) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUN 25, 2016

Light malty aroma, black beer. Not a huge amount of taste. Earthy malt, touch of chocolate. Bit watery. Not great.
