I rate beers I think significantly better than average, simple as that. I am not into showing off through word games. :)

Opaque chocolate brown. Light aroma of forest fruit malt. Not overly great taste, full but simple. Sweet with a token bitterness. Decent but by no means outstanding strong bitter.

Cask at The Shrewsbury Hotel, Shrewsbury. Dark brown colour, liquorice, leather but still quite a fresh taste with pleasing bitterness. Ok.

[email protected] avion, aldridge. Dark brown beer with residual head and touches of lacing. Aroma of cocoa. Taste is chocolate, licorice and dark berries. A very good beer.

Cask at the moon under water watford. Dark copper colour with a persistent blotchey cream head. Aroma is rye bread and choc with hints of nuts. Flavour is malt forward, nutty choc. But there are some higher alcohols. Raisin berry fruity notes as well.

This stuff is consistently underrated. Marvellous stuff! It has a caramel/chocolatey zing.

rane (1094) - Nibe, DENMARK - APR 25, 2013
Dark brown with s.all palebrown head. Aroma roasted mmalts. Coffe. Taste roasted malts some iterness. Long finish. More like A stout than a n old ale.

Rune (13348) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 19, 2013
Cask, full pint at Minster Inn. Creamy, tan-coloured head that stays well leaving spotty lacing down the glass. Bright mahogany coloured body – very nice, indeed. Semi-sweet caramel nose. Dark caramel taste added by a touch of chocolate. Smooth roasted bitter finish. Medium bodied. Tasty (York, 26.01.2013).

DandyLion (518) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 16, 2013
Guest Cask at the Clarendon, Leicester. Dark ruby red colour with off white creamy head. Big malty aroma. Surprisingly drinkable. Malty taste with slightly sweet finish and bitter aftertaste. Nice- certainly rather have this than a hobgoblin. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
