imdownthepub (13543) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 13, 2008
Cask conditioned at Coventry Beer festival 08. Dark brown red beer with white head. This was an absolute belter on the Satrday of this festival, rich and fruity, full of blackberry notes, smooth as silk, touches of sweetness and malty biscuit, but so well developed. I loved it and my beer of this festival.

Fin (9772) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 9, 2008
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

Cask conditioned - gravity dispense - Coventry BF. A black coloured beer with some off-white wisps of head. The aroma is hoppy but with some sweet notes, possibly oatmeal? The taste has some herbals notes. Mint and rosemary. Marshmallows on a toasting fork. A fruity interesting beer.

Cask-conditioned at the Black & Gold beer festival, the Gryphon, Bristol 2/9/2012. Near black with a slight tan head. Dark chocolate and black coffee aroma with a touch of berry sweetness. Full bodied mouth feel, with more chocolate and fruit flavours, leading to a soft finish. Good.
