Cask conditioned at Fleetwood Beer Festival ’15. Copper with off white head. The initial reaction is that this was quite a sweet beer, this is before the cherry notes kick in as these are drying and obviously quite fruity. The malt body has a reasonable depth, some breadiness. It’s a reasonable beer. ManVsBeer (10967) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 28, 2014

Lady Ruby, buonissima, Ruby di colore, amarognola alla fine giusta... 4 1/4. SilkTork (5879) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - OCT 12, 2013
Solito pub del Martedi. 12 Nov 2012.
JDW, Rochester. Yummy beer. Dark coloured and full of plum and raisin flavours. Very fruity with a dark honey sweetness and a modicum of hops to keep things in order. My sort of beer - great malt character. Touch of port and rum. Like an old ale.

Cask at the Back of Beyond (JDW), Reading. Deep golden amber in colour with a thin cream head; aroma of purple fruit and demarara sugar; soft and grainy in the mouth and surprisingly full bodied, with a Barley Wine oily feel, some caramel sweetness but nicely balanced by some sour grains; the finish is dry and smooth and overall this was much more than I was expecting. tombyars (1774) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - JUL 29, 2013
Tasted this in the Salt Cot, Saltcoats (JDW) in July 2013. Cask, hand pump dispense. Clear mahogany in colour with ruby highlights and a thin creamy buff head. Sweet fruits of the forest aroma, short on the nose. Thin but creamy mouthfeel and good lacing. Dark malts give a sweet malt loaf base with a strong, juicy fruit note of black cherry in the mouth. There is a slight hop prickle evident in the short aftertaste but this fades fast as malt asserts itself in the vinous finish. Tasted more like a traditional Old Ale in style, well recommended and an excellent session ale. SarkyNorthener (4905) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 24, 2013
