From the Lord Nelson taps. Pours black. Great aroma of coffee, burnt toast. Bit of dried fruit. Wonderful on palate. Sense of rum on the tongue. Pleasant finish without bitterness. Not quite a stout but quality beer.

Amber, slightly hazy and the aroma is a bit caramelly with a hint if bubblegum. Med caramel, sweet, with a little bit of earthiness. Rob_D_UK (1366) - Madrid, SPAIN - SEP 16, 2013

Pours a dark brown with some red highlights and a floppy off-white head. Picked up some chocolate and maybe a little dark fruit on the nose. Dark malt dominates the taste, with a hint of chocolate and some raisin. Finishes reasonably cleanly, with a bit of lingering sweetness. Not great, but not too bad.

Great appearance of choluria with haemolisis and a nice off-white head. Aromas of banana cakes, with peach, cinammon and biscuits. I must confess that I got little of the flavour, with the cold temperature it was served. Mainly a malty, toffeeish taste, quite pleasant. Nice creamy feel to the palate, rather numbing.
