COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular. Also available bottle conditioned.
This rich and complex, chestnut coloured beer has a warming, dry finish to follow its unusual combination of sweet and bitter flavours. A coffee aroma, with hints of fruit, precedes chocolate malt, dried fruit and hops, which vie for attention in the taste.

Cask-conditioned at the Seven Stars, Bristol 4/7/2017. Deep amber in colour, with a decent, white, head. Bready malts, slightly sour red berries, some leafy hops and moderately bitter finish. So so drinking.

jackl (8215) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 13, 2017
July 9th, 2015. Cask @ Chelmsford Ale Festival. Amber pour with a small head. Toffee malt on the nose and little else. A touch of red fruit skin. Creamy and sweet stuff. Caramel-dipped apple flavor. Flabby, and one-dimensional. Not bad, but very one note.

Bottle thanks to allmyvinyl. Appearance - amber red with a decent lacy head. Nose - burnt toffee and molasses. A bit earthy. Taste - more burnt toffee, some red fruits. Palate - light to medium bodied with a tangy texture and a long tangy yet sweet finish. A bit thin. Overall - it’s a solid ale.

Stuu666 (13659) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 8, 2016
Bottle at ash’s. Pours deep amber, nose is quite foul, like a farm, burnt dung, sour, taste is sweet, cereal, toffee. I understand the name now.

allmyvinyl (10723) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 8, 2016
500ml bottle shared with Ashton McCobb and Stuu666. Pours clear dark amber with a thin white head. Aromas of burnt dung, treacle, something sour. Appropriately named so far. Taste is marginally better, sweet finish.

500ml bottle from Booths, Windermere - Deep ruby red body, no head - shame. Nose comes through as strong cake fruits, lots of robust malts and a slight nuttiness there too. Taste is rather sweet at first, but pans out to a bitterness at the end. Fruity, bit of a kick of sharp citrus, and possibly a bit of burnt toast in there as well.

9th July 2015
Chelmsford Beer Festival. Cask. Lightly hazy amber beer, small pale cream colour head. Palate is smooth with decent fine carbonation. Nice condition. Pretty sweet malts, mild cream and mild toffee. Tangy but sweetish dried fruits. Little candy fruits. Light semi dry finish. Pretty sweet but okay. And 4.5% is strong? Hello it’s not 1940 any more!

fullers (269) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 16, 2014
Bottle, White Hart Inn, Hawes, North Yorkshire. From 2008 notes. Pour deep dark brown. Malty aroma. Quite sour. I remember the disappointment. I had wanted to like this beer.

Bottle. Pours a dark brown colour with a fluffy white head, rich malty aroma, taste is light bitterness and malty with a dry finish.
