Cask (handpump) at the Irwell Works brewery tap, Ramsbottom, on 27 December 2012. Dark brown. Thin but lasting beige head. Vaguely buttery aroma but not too intrusive. Lots of groundy, somewhat stewed coffee in the flavour. No sweetness at all. Another decent smooth-drinking number from Irwell Works.

national brewery centre, burton. Dark brown beer with medium head. Aroma of smokey malts. Taste is roasted malts, smoke and earth. Light bodied. Not sure if smoke is intentional after reading other reviews, but it tasted nice.
UPDATED: JUL 4, 2015 Bottle from Cheers Liquor Store, Todmorden. Very dark but loses its creamy head fast. Has a full aroma, but not quite a full taste. floris87 (35) - Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - MAY 20, 2012
