Cask developed through to perfection at Ketts Tavern by mine host of the arcane arts. Truly a most divine old ale.

zacgillbanks (4868) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - FEB 2, 2013
Bottle from Coppers, Newcastle. A rich black ale with a light brown head that rapidly disappears. It has a strong liquorice and blackcurrant flavour, sherry-like overtones and a mildly smoky finish.

Crunchie (36) - Somerset, ENGLAND - MAY 9, 2008
UPDATED: OCT 28, 2009 Matured for 6 months in cask (these Moor beers mature at a steady rate but still retain an incredible freshness about them), this is a beaut. Very dark, close to black with a head the colour of the crema of a well made espresso. Roast and smoky aroma with some cherry and prune fruit alongside some earthy hops and if you really look for it a citrus note (found after 3 pints, but found again when sober!). Good mouthfeel and carbonation with a creamy but full body. Obvious flavours of coffee and chocolate are in abundance with vine fruit, liqourice, smoke and generous bitterness. Lasting smokey, fruit, liqourice, bitter finish. A rich well matured fruitcake of a beer.

Bottle from Beermerchants. Pours black with a nice tan head which dissipates within a minute of pouring. Lovely aromas of dark chocolate, coffee, roasted malts, caramel. Flavours of dark chocolate, brown sugar, licorice, roasted malts. Finishes nice and malty with a slight bitterness. Leaves a pleasant warming feeling in the throat.Cracking effort!

LazyPyro (791) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - FEB 24, 2017
660ml bottle. Jet black appearance with a small tan head. Aroma of chocolate, liquorice, dark fruits, caramel. Taste is very rich, same flavours as the aroma, light roasted malts, vanilla, light coffee, quite sweet but not cloying, very slight alcohol burn. Full bodied, creamy velvety smooth texture. A rich, complex, delicious beer.

Bright bottled at Reading Beer Festival. When I tasted this at the festival on Friday it made a deep impression on me, and I can easily see why it won Supreme Champion at the CAMRA Winter Beers Festival. My notes: "Dark, very tangy, sweet, delicious. Wow! Score 4.0 " Sampling it again now I can only echo my thoughts at the time. Each mouthfull seems to bring forward new dark flavours - chocolate, coffee, tobacco. Though dark and warm and gently tangy, nothing is overdone - there is a balanced about everything, and a long slow ride into the lingering, oh so lingering, finish. Red fruits come through - hard to pin down exactly, but with just enough fruit to balance the dark tobacco and peppery spice. An absolute sensation! My beer of the month!
