jamesie1857 (1964) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 9, 2015
On cask at Neptune Inn, Chesterfield - Solid ruby brown body, thick two finger off white head. Nose is smokey, roast nuts, coffee and a bit of chocolate. Taste is a little more robust than this piss weak milds the Midlands put out, bit of treacle at the end makes each sip a good one.

jjsint (2459) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - DEC 22, 2014
Cask at Georges, March. Impenetrable black with a wisp of off-white head. Liquorice, slate and coffee aroma. Bittersweet initial taste, but you becomes aware of the sourness as the pint goes on. Almost Guinness-like. Bitter-sour finish with a grainy coffee taste. Do I detect pork scratching a, or would that be the perfect companion to this drink? At any rate, one to seek out.

Flavours are nutty, gritty coffee with toffee and raisins. Hints of lemon with a light fruit and pine bitterness. Dry and herbal on the finish. Good.
