@ Raven, Bath. Bright amber-brown. Loose head. Looks great. Chocolate and toast aroma is actually quite appetizing. Chocolatey palate, some sweetness and good malt complexity. Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 29, 2011
On cask at the Crown Posada, Newcastle. Pours a very dark amber colour with a thick beige head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate and caramel. Flavours of caramel, chocolate, dark malts and barley. Foamy mouth-feel and a lingering barley flavour. OK. ration (2253) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 19, 2012

Copper coloured with small foamy slightly off-white head. Aroma is fruits, wood, mildly dark dry fruits as well as some nutty notes. Flavour is caramel malts, some fruits, wood, mild nuttyness as well as some red berries.
Cask at the cask and barrel as Broughton street domestic. 3.9% so makes more sense to put it here that the 2.9 separate listing. Pours clear amber brown, thick white head. Light floral hop aromas, light malt. Taste is burnt toffee, light spicey hop bitterness. Nice. chriso (7583) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 22, 2004
A decent, traditional style, session bitter. Some malt to start, bitter finish. Not too thin. Eminently drinkable. No great finesse or complexity, but you shouldn't really expect that from a session bitter . Now 3.8% (OG 1036). Handpump, The Speaker, Westminster, London SW1.
