Towey1989 (2006) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 7, 2016
Cask at The Green Dragon, Leek (JDW) A clear deep amber colour with a medium off white head. Aroma of caramel, dried fruits, some bready malts, slight plum and subtle spicy hops. Taste of dried fruits, caramel, some bready malts, slight plum, a little cherry, a hint of cola, chocolate and subtle spicy hops. Medium bodied and soft carbonation. A lingering, dryish, fruity and spicy hop bitterness in the finish. An interesting strong ale. Started quite basic but developed into a more fruity, slightly boozy beer. Decent.

Cask at JDWs Briar Rose, shared with Finn. Deep rosewood coloured body, low fawn-coloured head. Wood and caramel on the nose. Hints of chocolate and caramel malts to the taste buds backed by dried fruits. Roasted finish. Medium bodied. Pleasing to a certain degree (Birmingham 21.09.2016).

amhart88 (113) - Manchester, Lancashire, ENGLAND - SEP 5, 2016
Dark amber ale. Not much aroma. Fairly rich taste typical of strong ales - raisins, hints of brandy. Quite sweet. Very easy drinking.

The_Osprey (6853) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 2, 2016
Cask HP at The Crosse Keys Bishopsgate as Daleside Monkey Wrench, 5.3%. I misread the label and ordered a honkey wench. Time to book an optician appointment. Dark brown, opaque with a red hue, foamy tan head. Aroma is airy, some flat cola, dates, touch papery. Body is smooth, almost oily, with lowish carbonation. Taste is a touch thin, cardboard, raisin, some more watery cola, papery, carpet. Wishy washy finish. The flavour builds over time and its an ok beer overall. Grew on me. Wouldnt come back to it though.
