ManVsBeer (9737) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 29, 2014
Cask @ West Riding Rooms, Dewsbury. Slightly hazed reddish-brown, but more red with a thick frothy head. With its carbonation it feels a little lager like, although its slightly more ale in its texture. Its chocolate is mostly evident in its aroma, although its there in small quantities in its taste.

Scopey (14012) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 4, 2014
Bottle at Taps beer bar, KL. It pours deep red with a small off-white head. The nose is toasty, earth, caramel, dried fruits, light spice, wood and resin. The taste is crisp, malt-driven, dark fruits, toasty, caramel, cherry cola, decent bitterness, resin, light pepper with a dry, bitter finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Bitterness carries the malt through, but it is still a bitter sticky on the mouth-feel. Alright.

leaparsons (10400) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 17, 2014
Bottle. Amber copper with a medium foam. Aromas are burnt toffee with earthy, woody notes and red berries. Bubblegum with floral aspects and brown sugar. Flavours are sweet, chewy toffee with a solid piney bitterness. Pithy and spicy with red berries. Some plastic and black tea. Pretty good overall.

Bottle from Rehills Newcastle at home. Another success from Hitachino - complex flavours but deceptively drinkable.
