Oakes (17181) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 18, 2010
Medium brown with a nice head. Dark sugars, burnt orange, treacle and sticky toffee pudding...fun nose. Deep treacle/molasses character. Nice, subtle plummy-fruity depths, accented by a hint of alcohol. Complex, well-constructed beer. Very tasty.

Cask (gravity)@Lamplighter, St Helier, Jersey
Dark brown head, tiny white head. Wineous, a bit vinegardish, dark malty nose. Flavor has soya sauce, caramel, dark toffee and then light hops in the aftertaste. Cask past its prime?

RichardW (1813) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - JUL 15, 2010
Cask, Agricultural, Penrith. Liquid sticky toffee pudding! Deep ruby red appearance, heavy on the caramel, hence the pudding comparison. Burnt malt aftertaste, with whisky creeping in, alongside some sulphur and raisins.

DuffMan (10154) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 10, 2009
Back in Feb 2006 I erroneously entered the cask rating for this beer under the bottle heading. Having recently had the bottled version, I will now cut-and-paste my cask rating from 2006 here, where it belongs: Had this in Cumbria in the Lake District. Beautiful mahogany brown. Bready aroma, some caramel too. Rich roasted malt palate, brown sugar, chocolate, bitter finish. Almost a porter in some respects. Terrific!

TimE (5719) - Tokyo, JAPAN - APR 23, 2009
Mahogony brown color with faint tinges of red. Bananas, apples, toffee, slightly vinous nose. Wood, cherries, peaches and cream, very smooth, slightly sweet mouth. Lingering milk chocolate, woody finish. A bit too dry in the finish, but still great stuff.
