Cask @ London Drinker 25: bobinlondon (1297) - Harrow, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 19, 2008
Dark, dark brown with a swirly film that created lovely patterns across the top of the beer.
Hefty chocolate and smoked aromas with underlying weetabix style grains.
Light smoke and creamy cappuchino flavours finsihed with a very bitter cringe in the mouth. I just found this WAY TOO THIN. It was good to an extent with some nice flavours. The texture was far too much to ignore though I am afraid.
Handpulled cask at the Black Lion in Lynsted, Lent. Very dark brown wth off white head. Malt accent with hint of smokiness. A very sessionable breww and a fine example of it’s style. MiP (15981) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - SEP 9, 2008
Cask, 3.4% at GBBF08. Good roasted flavour, a bit thin mouthfeel, but to be expected from ABV. Still quite flavourful. Clear dark brown colour. Small stable frothy white head. fonefan (51716) - VestJylland, DENMARK - JUN 8, 2008
Cask gravity @ Reading Beer Festival 2008. Ethereal (2471) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAR 2, 2008
Clear medium amber brown color with a average, fizzy, fair lacing, mostly diminishing, off-white head. Aroma is moderate malty, mild coffee. Flavor is moderate sweet and bitter with a average to long duration. Body is medium to light, texture is oily to watery, carbonation is flat. (020508)
Gravity cask at the Battersea Beer Festival, 8th Feb 2008. Yet another cracking mild at the BBF. Ruby, dark chestnut colour. Aroma of oats, coffee and rich malt. Flavour is similar, but with herbal notes too. Good stuff.

half @ 18th camra battersea. Nice deep oaty nose, and dark red in colour. Tasted almost like porridge, in a good way, but was overly lively and had a very short finish. FatPhil (17168) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 13, 2007
Cask (Peterborough Beer Festival 2004) hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 26, 2007
Rich brown, thin head. Toast, and roasted malts in the aroma. In the mouth it’s very malty, but with no real bitterness either from hops or burnt malts. Good for 3.4%.
Cask, gravity at Cambridge BF ’07. Dark brown. Grainy malt aroma and taste. Unexpectedly bitter. Not outstanding; this somehow just didn’t do the job. DonMagi (5593) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 26, 2007
Aroma was malty, chcolate and biscuit having a day, no hops to be found. Taste is similar but very full flavoured for the %, not too roasty also which is a good thing. TheGrandMaster (2335) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - FEB 9, 2007
Half pint gravity fed at the Battersea Beer Festival, a brown colour with no real head. A musty malt aroma with hints of chocolate. A medium mouthfeel, a good malty flavour with a little bit of chocolate, and an interesting bitter character all the way through.
