Cask @ Old Gate, Hebden Bridge. Very dark red with a creamy head. Has a dry grain taste with a slight sweetness and a more sweet aroma. It’s strength is most evident in its aftertaste. mR_fr0g (13500) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 17, 2014
Cask at Euston tap. Dark caramel brown pour with a fleeting off cream head. Aromas are earthy roast, tea leave tanin and toffee apple. Flavour is caramel toffee apple earthy tough bitterness. Finish is fairly sweet. Fullish palate and light carbonation. Some hot alcohols. Middle of the road for me.

Pigs Ear. Opaque dark brown beer. Dry palate. Rich dark malt. Unsweet dark toffee and dark fruits in the undertone. Warming bitterish dry finish.
Bird, Espoo (Real ale version). Brown color, tan head. Roasted malt flavor with an unpleasant home-brew note. Full body, very low carbonation. I don’t get this beer at all.
