Dark colour with thick dense head... Leather smell, hint of coffee. Overall rather dull...

Pint at the Back of Beyond in Reading. Black with a good bubbly head. Lovely rich roast aroma. Chocolate malt, rich light roast, a good blend. Pretty nice, quite subtle. Just slightly lacking body. Tastes nice, but not as good as it smells. To be fair it was possibly served a little too cold.

Really lovely dark beer fully of malt, chocolate, sweetness. Very smooth and great condition. Could have used a bit more strength and flavour though.

jjsint (3100) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - JUL 8, 2013
UPDATED: MAY 28, 2014 Very dark brown ale. Smoky aroma - almost that of a Rauchbier. Lighter taste than you would expect, very much in keeping with a mild. instead of an old ale. Liquorice predominates. Only letdown is in the palette, which throws a too-bitter curveball into an otherwise balanced mix.

Tap@ Ben Loyal in Tongue. Zwarte kleur en geen kraag. Ruikt zuur, azijn, wijn. Smaakt ook zurig, vaag hout. Waterig. Als ik de andere recenties hier lees vraag ik me af of ik hetzelfde bier heb gehad..... Het stond toch echt op de tap. Ik vond het bier niet lekker.

Graham77 (514) - SCOTLAND - JUN 23, 2013
Cask at the Clydesdale in Lanark (JDW). Not quite as good as the bottled version which I have drank many times before. Surprising but will look out for this again on cask for a definitive answer.

jfb (6256) - GERMANY - MAY 22, 2013
(cask) pours a very dark ruby colour with a frothy beige head. aroma of dark chocolate, marshmallow, roasted malts, vanilla and a hint of espresso. flavour is mostly the same, milk chocolate, caramel and toffee, with a very light hint of alcohol and a light sweetness. medium-bodied with soft carbonation.
