Cask. Dark brown with a slight haze, ruby hints and a thick tan head. Deep malt and straw nose. First wave in mouth is malty then a whole swathe of Licorice. Really rich Licorice flavours which then fade back to a pleasant bitter finish with woods and a little malt sweetness.

Cask @ Moon Under Water. Rated on 28.11.2012
Aroma is malty with toffee. Flavour is also rather malty with toffee, some nuts and caramel. Usually I am not a friend of malty English ales but this one was good.

Beesbeer (452) - WALES - NOV 24, 2012
The colour is red chestnut. Hoppy, creamy and sweetish with slight coffee and then mild bitterness. Could so easily be a session beer!

kiwianer (3428) - Otorohanga, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 31, 2012
The colour is dark red. The taste is hoppy, creamy, a bit flowery-sweet, salty and it just has a bit CO². For me it could be more roasty and in some parts it is to mild. => Ok 10/8/8/8/-/8

wheresthepath (2298) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAR 23, 2012
[Cask at the Back of Beyond (JDW), Reading] Chestnut with a moderate, creamy head. Wood, chocolate and coffee with a light bitterness. Mellow, indulgent and tasty, this is a lovely beer… but oddly it’s still not a patch on the bottled version.
