Cask Pint at Wibbas Down (JDW), Wimbledon, London in Oct 2009 - Dark Brown to Black with Reddish highlights. Malty; roasty malts, caramel, toffee, hint of liquorice. Fruity; some dark fruits, hint of berries. Hoppy; slight hop bitterness. Sweetish roasty malts throughout with a slight sour edge. OK. Drinkable. (2009-10)

A really smooth looking black beer. Full flavoured beer with a malty taste and elements of coffee and chocolate in the background.

Cask @ Frank Hornby, Maghull. Dark red with a thin head. Has a fair nose, but a little soapy in taste, but what roasted malts that are there do give it flavour.

Cask at the Boat. Aroma roasted oats with chocolate notes. Pours dark brown with tan lacing. Taste of sweet milk chocolate with mild biscuit malt underpinning and some lingering hoppy piquancy on the palate. My only complaint would be the thinness of the body. Too light as a dark but that may be the risk with old recipes.

Spoons Fest. Clear and very dark brown - red beer. Light semi soft palate, semi dry as well. Soft dark malt with an undertone of banana, bubblegum and a little peach. Finishes light and dry and minerally. Slightly bitter aftertaste. Not bad if a tad dry.
