Bottle. Much better than their Foundation Stone. In fact a cracking beer. Dark with a small head and a fruity maltiness.
A bit thin for its strength but stilll well balanced with a complexity of flavours that was most interesting. Mr_Pink_152 (5005) - Lincoln, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - OCT 10, 2015
Tried at the Nottingham beer festival 2015. Dark ruby colour with an off white head. Aroma has stewed fruit taste fruity. MrTipple (4966) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 26, 2014
Aroma: bread and toasted malts. Appearance: dark clear brown, medium beige creamy head. Taste: light sweet. Palate: initially caramel sweets, turning to toasted notes, bread, flat carbonation. Overall: nice Strong Ale, quite a nice aroma. Pint at Ye Olde Trip to Jerusalem, Nottingham. JohnRMurdoch (4867) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - JAN 16, 2012
UPDATED: JAN 17, 2012 Cask @ The Bow Bar. Rich dark brown colour, good head. Roasted coffee malt aroma & flavour. Sweet aftertaste. Not bad. RichardGretton (4770) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - APR 18, 2012
Bottle. Black beer with a strong head. The aroma is mildly roasted, and the flavour is pretty deeply roasted with a deeply bitter and fortified body and finish. Overall a really flavoursome beer.

Cask at Wellington Arms, Bedford. Dark brown with a small off white head. Ashy log fire aroma. Sweet, thick leathery taste with dates and prunes, thick, rich... I almost want to say meaty, like a cup of Bovril. Mid bitter finish. Full of character. Almost like a Hopshackle beer. tommann (3751) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - FEB 21, 2013
500ml bottle. Pours a dark brown with a large head. Aroma is Juicy Fruits and marmalade on toast. Taste has Juicy Fruits and a little chocolate to start. Sweet, burnt malt finish. Some alcohol in the finish. gegwilson (3702) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 6, 2014
Cask in the Tilley Shilling, Farnborough. A mahogany coloured ale with a good cream head. Bittersweet flavour with toffee, pear drop and some pine notes on the finish. Quite full flavoured. Drinkable and quite refreshing for a darker ale.
