Draft at GBBF 2014 - London. Pours rich ruby with a creamy-frothy, light tan head. Decent stuff, with some lightly tangy berries and other fruits, mild brown bread, faint toffee. Medium bodied with fine carbonation; good condition. Sweet finish with further toffee, berries. Good one. Lonick (2537) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 10, 2014

Quoth Anna: Sweet treacle aroma. Reddish brown. Taste a bit cupric and sweet - odd. Something savoury. Quoth Phil: Nothing to add, except that this clearly wasn’t at it’s best.

Cask (handpump) @ Anchor Inn, 308 Bradford Street, Digbeth, Birmingham, West Midlands England B5 6ET.
Clear medium to dark amber color with a average, frothy to creamy, good lacing, mostly lasting, off-white head. Aroma is moderate to light light heavy malty, roasted, caramel, chocolate, wood. Flavor is moderate to heavy sweet and light to moderate bitter with a average to long duration. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is flat, finish feel is moderate alcoholic. 
Cask. Pours a dark and hazy orangey brown with an off-white head. The nose is rather exotic: overripe fruit and wood. Medium body, flat, notes of both dried and overripe fruit and wood with a lightly tart edge. Subdued bitterness. Quite exciting really. 160110 dj (626) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 16, 2007
Cask gravity at the Exeter Festival of Winter Ales, 12/01/2007. A dark black colour with no head. A malty aroma. Taste is strong toffee, some plum, malt and prune - rather different. Fairly sweet. A sweet and only lightly bitter finish. Poor aroma, but pretty tasty. chriso (21656) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 20, 2005
The alcohol isn’t very noticeable. Caramel, a touch of malt and some jammy fruit. Finishes dry. But its all a bit thin for a strong ale and doesn’t pack a great deal of punch. Not really a typical old ale. This was a festival of strong ales so the less powerful beers were bound to struggle to make their presence felt, so I’ve made some allowances in the scoring. Cask (gravity dispense), February 2005.

Dover Fest. A thin ale with a damp aroma and no real character. Everything is a bit wishy washy. Some sweetness. Some ashy bits. Not really hanging together. omhper (25723) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAR 1, 2002
Sampled cask conditioned. Nut brown. Soft and gentle but very malty. Very fruity, but still dryish. A big, very goiod winter ale with a rather bitter finish.
