mcberko (17815) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 5, 2015
On tap at The Old Contemptibles, pours a deep dark brown / near black with a small beige head. Nose brings out bready toffee notes, not much else. Flavour is along the same lines, with bready toffee notes and just enough bitterness to back. Soft on the palate and balanced well. Very easy drinking. Solid.

teorn88 (7682) - Rimini, ITALY - MAR 13, 2015
Cask at JDW WIQ, London. It pours a dark copper color with a medium tan head. Aroma is sweet and lightly boozy, with notes of raisins, honey, dried fruit, vanilla. Taste is sweet, with notes of chocolate, lactose, vanilla, dried fruits, honey. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Overall, tasty old ale

Lovely chocolate aroma. Good dark appearance with lasting off white head. Lots of malt and toffee flavours. Good strength and great on palate. Will try again and further assess.

Cask, Chelmsford JDW. Descent white lacing. Chestnut brown appeaeance which reds out at the base. Cold espresso creme flavour. Caramel. Brown sugar. Very malty. One of the finest for its style. Well made and reliable despite a bit too top heavy on crystal malt. Loads of toffee.

Gorgeous chocolatey aroma. Dark coal like colour. Thin and slightly syrupy. A lingering aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Benzai (15586) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - AUG 18, 2014
Sampled @ GBBF. Dark brown color, small beige head. Smell and taste malts, a slight sourness, roast. The sourness annoys me, shouldn’t be there I think. Average body and carbonation. Meh.
