Cask @ Oliver Twist, StockholmDruncanVeasey (8283) - Nr NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - SEP 6, 2008
Dark ruby. Mellow malty. Medium sweet. Touch of salmiak, dark bread (limpa in Swedish) and coffee. Roasted aftertaste. Not too bitter. Nice. (Stout? No, to me this is more of a Scot ale)
UPDATED: SEP 14, 2008 Leicester ’Spoons. Tempting ruby with a VERY stable thick beige collar and clinging lace. Faint choc, yeasty apple and cereal aroma deadened by that collar. Flavour another matter. Luscious dusty choc malt, sultana apple fruit (strudle), lovely faint smoke and choc clinging to the palate. The best English beer at over 5% I’ve had in a long, long while. Clean, rounded, beautifully fresh and packed with gently roasty malt chocolate goodness. Milky still. Can’t really fault this beer. Drinks smooth but deep and tasty like a really full mild, not a stout. HAIL THE BEAST. Glad I popped in. OwainTurner (425) - Leicester, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 19, 2013
UPDATED: AUG 25, 2013 At Rutland Beer Festival ... Appearance of coca-cola (minus the gas). Very toffee smell (lovely!) warm orange and toffee taste. No bitterness (unlike at spoons last time I tried.) Much better ante (3373) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - NOV 19, 2005
Cask at Oliver Twist, Stockholm. Clear dark brown with red edges. Large creamy head. Roasted grains, toffee and almond in aroma. Rich and slightly oily flavour of black chocolate and toffee with undertones of almond and smoke. Long aftertaste of roasted malts and toffee-like hops. Pleasant stout.

Cask at GBBF ’17, 11/08/17. Light chocolate and raisin aroma. Dark and glossy. Thin but frothy beige head. Sweet and sour with a bitter base. Rum and raisin. Medium bodied. Slick. Soft carbonation. Low key finish. Good stuff. Need to get changed from a stout to a mild. anders37 (27062) - Malmö, SWEDEN - DEC 15, 2005
