fiulijn (21214) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 18, 2005
Cask at Bishop’s Arms, Malmö
Mahogany color; frothy head. Light caramel aroma, very light herbs. Soft mouthfeel, some malt, caramel, some chocolate, correct bitterness (long, getting stronger). When it’s warmer, it’s a pleasant and soft Winter Warmer.

Theydon_Bois (20602) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - APR 18, 2013
Cask at the Rupert Brooke, Rugby, 17/04/13. Mahogony brown with a good sized beige head that retains well. Good lacing ensues. Nose is dark malt, very light roast, toffee, touch of smoke. Taste is malt forward, dark toffee fudge, sugars, mineral notes, barley, dark fruits, biscuit. Medium bodied with soft carbonation, smooth and plesant on the palate. Decent enough fayre, but coming over as more of an ESB to me than a stout.

harrisoni (19312) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 21, 2009
Cask at White Cliffs BF 09. Ruby/chestnut colour, thin beige head. Great condition. It’s a bit toasty, good beer. Not that bad. Decent sting on end. Tasty and toasty.

Scopey (15658) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 10, 2017
UPDATED: AUG 11, 2017 Finally! Cask at GBBF. It pours clear rich brown with a bubbly off-white head. The aroma is sweet, sticky, toasty grain, plenty of dried fruits, berry skin, earth and a bit of jam. The taste is of the same ilk: bitter - sweet, dried fruits, bit of jam, fruit cake, bread, soft sweetness and carmel with a soft finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Another beer which benefits from Good condition (think this was the fresh second cask). Decent fruity dark ale.

3.4
imdownthepub (15325) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 14, 2010
Cask conditioned at a Wetherspoons. Mahogany with tan head. Heavy darkly roasted malts with a bitter chocolate character, some liquorice, chalkiness with just a hint of hop in the finish.
