MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 31, 2006
A Mes rate: Cask at Baker Street JDW. Black is certainly the right word. The could not be any blacker. Creamy caramel in the nose. Tangy and very sweet in the mouth. Slight sourness with some blackcurrant and salt. Odd stuff.

berkshirejohn (6371) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - APR 22, 2010
Cask at the Monks Retreat (JDW), Reading. Black with a reddish glow and ring of tan head; aniseed aroma; thinly bodied, the flavour blends aniseed and fruit with a light waft of smoke. Very drinkable.

SilkTork (5693) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - APR 19, 2010
JDW Spring fest - Rochester. Creamy chocolate with a nice burnt toast nip. Body is a bit flat despite the cappuccino head. Some coffee lingering in the finish. OK.

DonMagi (5593) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 10, 2008
Cask in Counting House. Aroma is roasty and burnt malt, hints of dark fruit also. Taste is similar very burnt notes however not too bitter so not completly ruined, but not my scene.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 29, 2006
UPDATED: OCT 31, 2006 [email protected], Hammersmith, W London. Was a little dissapointed and im hoping that maybe this wasnt in the best condition. Aroma is roasty and sweet, with some light sourness. Palate was a little sour, but with some underlying roasty sweetness, which was quite pleasant. I will look to try this again at another Wetherspoons, just to make sure it wasnt the condition of the beer at this pub.

BeerViking (4564) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 16, 2010
Cask at the Moon under Water (JDW) in Hounslow. Poured a deep black-brown with a medium-thin head, and a plummy yet drying nose. Its dry-sweet with dark chocolate, with hints of dry plums and raisins. Similar to a mild but with a slightly bitter finish.

Bullit (4559) - Burgos, SPAIN - APR 26, 2010
Cask @ Edward Wylie, JDW. Dark brown - red colour, tan lacings. Aroma is toasted malts, sweet licorice. Flavour of sweet licorice, roasted malts, some fruits. A bit watery. Agree on the aniseed mention. A bit smoky. Lots of things going on in this beer, but its a bit on the sweet side.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 4, 2006
UPDATED: FEB 27, 2008 Cask at Bankers Draft (JDW), Bedford. Very dark brown with a slight film of a head. Sweet and sour aroma. The taste is sour, lemony, smokey and cheesy with a little sweetness. Full of flavours, though the overall impression is odd and muddled. 27.2.08 at Spoons, Milton Keynes. Tasted like a coffee milkshake made with sour milk. Hated it. Rated 6,3,2,1,5:1.7

Cask Pint at Wibbas Down (JDW), Wimbledon, London in Apr 2010 - Pitch Black in colour. Malty; sweet malts, dark chocolate, caramel. Fruity. Hoppy; some hop bitterness to balance the sweet malts. Good malty/fruit/hop balance. Sweet malts dominate ending in a moderately bitter hoppy finish. (2010-04)

Cask conditioned @ Standing ORder (JDW), Soton. Dark colour. Some chocolate nice tasty malts and some fruitiness. Some sweetness in body with light lactic tartness. Well balanced and some pleasing flavours. Perhaps slightly thin in the mouth.
