Handpulled cask at JDW Hatch End, Harrow. I found this beer far too sweet to start with but as I reached the end of the pint I found myself really enjoying it as multi layered flavours came through. Very good strong dark ale. Christian (13775) - Odense, DENMARK - DEC 18, 2009
Dark brown with a small off-white head. Aroma of fruit and raisin, with a vineous sherry note. Sweet dried fruit flavour with a roast note TheJestersBeer (2430) - SWEDEN - NOV 29, 2011
Pours a slightly hazy, dark brown, thin beige head.
Aromas are mostly roasted malt, chocolate, spices, some hops, yeast.
Off-dry, medium to full bodied, medium bitterness, balanced CO2.
Malty, roasted, spicy taste, lots of chocolate and spices, cinnamon, hops, earth, faint smoke, against a solid malt and alcohol backbone. Not bad.

Bottle. Dark brown, small to average and fully diminishing light brown head. Moderate malty and sweetish aroma with some caramel and some roasted malt, vinous fruitiness with dark fruits, light chocolate and licorice. Malty body is medium, sweetish with fruitiness - dark fruits, some caramel and light roasted malt, light chocolate. Finish is average to long, malty and sweetish with some fruitiness - dark fruits, light roasted malt. Strong ale with vinous fruitiness and some roastiness - could be dried, though. imdownthepub (15137) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 4, 2012
Bottled, 500ml a present from Sandra. Brown with short lasting pale brown head. Quite a sweet, wine like, fruity beer, full on the palate, quite heavy with a light chocolate roastiness in the background. The larger bottle is overdoing it a bit, but not bad.
