Cask @ Cigar City Brewpub during RBWG. Deep brown pour with a small head. Toasted grains and general nuttiness. Some earthy roasted coffee comes through. Taste has more creamy toasted grain. Caramel. Nice sweet cherry fruit accents. Creamy mouthfeel. Drinks well for the modest ABV. Theydon_Bois (21867) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAY 17, 2015

Decent enough mild. burg326 (5662) - Florida, USA - MAR 18, 2015
Poured a deep amber almost brown color with aromas of roast, light chocolate and some musk. Flavors match the aromas not bad from the cask but other solid offerings that I would prefer over this. jnkor (477) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAR 7, 2015
Aroma is English, musty and dry malty, not sweet. Dark in color with a thick white head, small bubbles. Taste is bitter but not sweet. Slight creamy texture that makes me think nitro. Reminds me of a Guinness, not my favorite style, but drinkable. hopscotch (11492) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 6, 2015
Cask… RBWG 2015… Pours clear and deep, dark ruby with a diminutive, fleeting head. The bouquet is muted and subtle, but shares nice notes of milk chocolate and toasted tree nuts. Medium-bodied and thin with lazy carbonation. There’s not much going on flavor-wise – some toastiness flanked by a hint of acidity. Finishes watery, lightly bitter and mostly flat.
