Sweet smelling. Sharp cherry hit with a grainy malt flavour then lots of milk chocolate. Fairly clever I thought.

imdownthepub (13886) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 29, 2008
Cask conditioned at a Wetherspoons. Dark brown with slight head. Dark roasted malts, quite mild in character, with a dose of caramel, toffee and really quite sweetish. Smooth with hints of hops. Its ok but not something I could go back to.

A Mes rate: Cask at Baker Street Sporks.
Very dark amber brown with a thin white film. Big chocolate malt with some slight hoppage and tobacco. Chocolate is almost mocha and actually very pleasant. Dry chocolate finish. Not too bad but not something I could drink more than a pint of.

Cask in Counting house. Aroma is chocolate and roasty malts, quite a bit of typically caledonian grassy hop. Taste is similar, nicely malty and a decent effort from caledonian, but perhaps stay off the grassy hop.
