Bottled. A dark brown headless beer with a cola look to it. A malty beer with a bit of chocolate. Noticeable strength. Fruits in aroma. Dry taste. Nothing stands out. Pretty ordinary and dull really. SilkTork (5729) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - DEC 6, 2003
Gravity fresh @ Pig's Ear Festival, East London. Murky red brown. Raspberry and banana aroma. Soft mouthfeel going toward watery. Like watered down marmite. Wet vanishing finish with some soapy notes. Spiesy reckons I down-rated this because I had it immediately after the No. 1 Barley Wine - I reckon he's just sore because he can't tell the difference between a masterpiece and an average strong ale! harrisoni (18437) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 5, 2006
Cask gravity at Blakes, Dover. I thought this was a house badge beer as the beer is called Blake’s and so is the pub in Dover. But no! This gives me another rating. Ha ha! Good seasonal dark winter warmer with good malt and some bitterness oh6gdx (26482) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAR 20, 2007
Bottled. Dark ruby red colour, mediumsized white head. Aroma is slightly roasted and barnyardish. Flavour is grass, some caramel, malts and hops. A bit metallic hints too. downender (8591) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 2, 2011
Cask-conditioned at the Seven Stars’ Hampshire Beer Festival, Bristol 2/05/2011. Dark brown, flat, with no head. Sweet, caramel and dark fruit with not much else. Dull.

Bottled. Very dark ruby, small beige gead. Light dusty fig aroma. Fairly sweet with clean, bold malt character and medium body. Dry dust covers the malt, hops stay in the background. Somewhat raw in the mouth. Medium bitterness. rickgordon (3874) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - APR 3, 2007
Bottled. Thanks omhper.
Dark ruby colour. Med.sized head. Slight roasty with raw/industrial malt feel, also stalky. Grassy, sweet caramel, stalky and with almond paste. Too much stalk here. Medium bitter.
