imdownthepub (13832) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 25, 2016
Cask conditioned at The Red Lion, Northend, Warks. Brown with cream head. There is a sweet, fruity character to this, cereal with a light tangy note, nutty malts mid roasted. Its fine, by why no indication of who the Brewer is on the pumpclip? frustrating, are G.K that unsure of themselves these days?

Draught @ London. Appearance: pours dark brown with ok creamy beige head and lacing. aroma/taste: caramel, chocolate and berry notes. palette medium malty aroma, low to average carbonation, medium body, medium sweetness, balanced by an average bitterness, medium duration and an oily texture. Overall: nice roasted old ale.

Hippoman (646) - Durham, ENGLAND - OCT 31, 2015
Cask at The Market Tavern, Durham, 3.50/pint. Near black pour with a smooth, off-white head. Caramel malts dominate the aroma and, to a lesser extent, flavour. Theres berry and cereal notes in the flavour too, and a taste that is surprisingly bitter for such a dark beer. Nothing massively wrong with it but not one I enjoyed.
