Cask Pint – JDW Fest Autumn 2011 in Oct 2011 - Opaque Black in colour. Very Malty; sweet roast malts, toffee, some coffee, hints of milk chocolate. Fruity; dark soft fruits, plums and raisins. Hoppy; earthy hops. Smooth. Easy drinking for AV. Sweet roast malty fruity throughout. Not an Impy Stout; more of a cross between a stout and a porter. Enjoyed this a lot. Nice beer! (2011-10-15)

Cask at White Lady JDW. Not recently, but came across this beer whilst looking for the ’imperial’ pale ale, and remember it well. Pours clear brown for one thing. thin tan head. Light aromas of chocolate and roasted malt. Taste was sweet, with a light roast bitterness and a very thin finish. NOt very good. fonefan (50011) - VestJylland, DENMARK - AUG 30, 2012

Crosse Keys Spoons. Clear brown beer. Residual tan head. Light dry palate. Okay semi dark malts. Dark toffee. Very mild roast. Plummy fruits underneath. Whisper of sulphur. Dry finish. Not bad, has some flavour.

Pint at the Old Manor in Bracknell. Black with a bubbly, creamy head. Chocolate dark malt, with a hint of spice. Some bitterness and a tart aftertaste. Hops come through after the malt. Quite a decent beer. Spiced and hoppy aroma. markas101 (2483) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - NOV 9, 2011
