Cask at Banshee Labyrinth. Dark brown, creamy beige head. Nose is sweet malts, toffee, light chocolate. Taste is soft, malty, sweet chocolate. McNeillR (2336) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 21, 2016
Dark semi opaque brown, thin off white ringed head. Nose is steely choc, some odd prune juice and wet tobacco. Initial taste is surprisingly sweet choc, very smooth and a roll of figs. Carbonation is soft and mouthfeel is cooling, tinny. Finishes simple enough, more cushion of choc and a little bit of roast on the linger. Short and sweet. imdownthepub (15669) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 3, 2016

Cask conditioned at The Greyhound, Brackley, Northants. Dark brown with cream head. Quite a sweet, malty beer, fruity, light, a touch thin. Easy palate. Just okay. jjsint (3653) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 10, 2015
Cask at the Eagle, Cambridge. Dark brown with a cloud of tan/beige head. Scent of chocolate malt and fresh blackberries. Taste is sweet, malty, slightly fruity and luscious. Hints of smoke and stone fruit in the chalky finish. Well made, a really solid mild. dogbomb (1265) - ENGLAND - OCT 27, 2015
Cask. Dark red brown ale with a thick light tan head. Nose is red currants a touch of vinegar. Taste is a nice cool malt, almost like a lager but there’s a bit of stout earthiness. Tasty and moreish.
Vladivostok (491) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - OCT 21, 2015
Dark - almost heading into porter territory. Aroma is malty with the flavour of treacle toffee. Hopping is very restrained and the finish short. Decent mild ale. Won’t cut much ice with those who give 4+ to everything 7% and over but a nice supping pint for those who don’t want to die of cirrhosis of the liver in their mid-forties.

Mörk med krämigt skum. Smakar lite bränt, med smörkola. Rätt len och mild. Helt ok.

UPDATED: NOV 11, 2015 On cask at Corbie Inn, Bo’ness. Pours black with light tan head. Looks the part but it’s a shocker. Like a glass of sugar water.
Re-rate 10/11/2015. Cask at Little Vic, Newcastle under Lyme. Well balanced sweetish mild. Obviously off on my previous try. jd543 (428) - SCOTLAND - NOV 4, 2013
Dark brown with a medium creamy tan head. Aroma of roast malt, caramel malt, dark fruit. Thin oily texture, low carbonation. OK, could have done with a bit more body. mr_h (6122) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - NOV 21, 2012
