On cask at the Five Bells in Newbury. Lightly spiced, quite bitter, and tastes weak. Didn’t do it for me, though there was a nice malty note to the finish. john44 (3456) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 3, 2017

Cask at the White Hart, Chobham. Sweet aroma - floral and chocolate. Dark with a chestnut tint. Good creamy light beige head. Sweet with a bitter edge. To quote a mate, "like stout mixed with coke." Medium bodied. Creamy mouthfeel. Long finish. Good stuff. ansjelaah (1747) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - MAR 11, 2015

500ml bottle. Clear, dark mahogany colour, light ruby red glimmer, with small, frothy, diminishing, minimally lacing, beige head. Fruity, malty aroma, notes of red fruit, i.e. red berries, cherries, bramble. Taste is minimally sweet malty, a touch of dark bread, cautious hop bitterness, disguised fruitiness (red fruit); super soft palate. Simple, easy to drink, very nice.

500ml bottle. Had this last year. From memory, pours amber with thin head. Both aroma and taste are in keeping with a winter beer. lots of spices and malts. Nice. Rob_D_UK (1366) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 27, 2013
On sale at the brewery for £1.50 at the moment. Pours chestnut with a tan head that disappears to the edge of the glass. A bit of fruit in the aroma and a sweet taste.
