Cask at Cloisters. Dark brown with a reddish tinge, thick off-white head. Coffee, raisin nose. Fig and coffee flavours on the palate, some sort of soapy flavour. Bit thin-bodied too, but not bad.

UPDATED: AUG 1, 2012 Cask at Cloisters. Pours a dark brown colour with a reddish tinge and a thin light tan head. Aroma of caramel, coffee and dark malts. Similar flavours with a dry finish. Alcohol is fairly present with a lingering raisin quality.

DJMonarch (9179) - Northwich, Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAR 15, 2010
Cask Stillage at the Metropolitan Cathedral Crypt, Liverpool 18/02/2006 Slightly fruity aroma. Dark a little rich on the palate and fruity with citrus and berry flavours. A hint of bitterness and dryness in a lasting finish.

DonMagi (5593) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 6, 2009
Cask in the market porter. Alround rating: Sweet black malt, lightly grainy mouthfeel, this big lemon and limke fruity character comes in and your like whats going on. A very interesting and different beer!

KnutAlbert (6750) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 15, 2009
Cask in Manchester. Very dark, off-white head. On the sweet side, I get milk chocolate associations. Just a hint of smoke, lacks a proper roasted malt edge. Or an edge of anything, really.

wyzzywyz22 (2108) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - NOV 20, 2008
Cask, Lion, Liverpool. Red tinged dark brown with a v thin tan head. Dark chocolate malt aroma with a hint of fruit. Ever so slightly on the thin side and not a huge amount in the finish, but these are minor quibbles, as this is certainly not lacking in appeal.

Doppelganger (1388) - Dry County, Arkansas, USA - MAY 14, 2008
Cask, Banbury Beer Festival. Deep brown, lots of frothy tan head. Warm old-fashioned chocolate candy aroma, delicate citrus and passionfruit hops. dark earthy sweetness, viney licorice mouthcoating finish, lingering citrus. Wow! My first of the festival, and in the end, my favorite.

UPDATED: JUL 5, 2009 Cask at Banbury Beer Festival 08-05-08 Pours very, dark brown with a thin off white head. deliciously hoppy on the nose and mouth, quite indulgent for a mild, bags of flavour great interplay between the hops and chocolate roasty malts, very good. A7 A4 F7 P4 Ov14 3.6 Had this again on Cask (Gravity) at Charlbury Beer festival 04-07-09 Pours black with a tiny rim of bubbles at the outset that didnt hang around for long. Chocolate and malty aroma with fruit. Taste is stunning, great fruitiness, its sweet but it carries this sweetness off very well indeed. I cannot determine what the fruit is that Im getting but its very nice. Hops, chocolate and good maltiness finish off proceedings, tied for best beer of the day around our table with the Millstone True Grit. A8 A4 F8 P5 Ov16 4.1
