Towey1989 (2254) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 12, 2015
Cask at The Congress, Longton. A clear amber colour with a thin white head. Aroma of toasty malts, toffee, some red berries, slight biscuit and nuts. Taste is similar of toasty malts, toffee, some red berries, slight vanilla and nuts. Light bodied and a slightly oily texture. A dry, toffee malt finish. Its quiet sweet but a solid bitter.

theprof (720) - Nottingham, ENGLAND - JUN 21, 2015
Malt biscuit aroma. Dark mahogony, thin cream top. Hints of prune and caramel. Viscous on the palate but pleasing on the lower edge. C Rs best malty bitter. Their strength lies with pale hoppy ales. I have to assume it wont taste better than at their own tap house.

jjsint (2698) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - AUG 3, 2014
Cask @ Keans Head, Nottingham. Copper brown, still, very little head. Woody, malty aroma with a hint of cinnamon and bitter chocolate. Taste is bittersweet with a chocolate sour finish and aftertaste. A solid cask ale that grows on you.
