BeardedAvenger (552) - Addlestone, Surrey, ENGLAND - MAR 17, 2017
Cask at Alfred Free House, Upper Hale, 16/03/17. Surprisingly muted aroma - a vague dark fruitiness. Dark and oil-esque. Thin beige head. Light bitter. Gradually develops a mocha sweetness. Vanilla. Soft carbonation. Creamy but too watery IMO. Long coffee finish. OK, but somewhat muddy and too low key.

BlackHaddock (6909) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 14, 2015
9th April 2015: gravity pour at the Isle of Man CAMRA beer festival. Very dark: black even, with a beige head. Malts rule the roost here, some dark chocolate and coffee notes in both the nose and taste. Fairly dry palate with a liquorice flavour arriving late and behind the other aforementioned malty flavours.

Theydon_Bois (18474) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JAN 7, 2015
Cask at the Pembury Tavern, 03/01/15. Black with moderate tan spotting and edgework. Nose is light roast, herbal strokes, biscuit, toffee, light coffee strains. Taste comprises light chocolate, charr, dark fruits, spice. Medium bodied, limited carbonation, semi drying close. Not the greatest condition, a little flat, their own pub - no excuses!
