Cask. Inky black, just-visible red tinge when held up to bright light. Close cropped, lasting mid-brown head. Dark chocolate, roasted nuts, toast. Very balanced, round malty flavour. Thick and full, lasting but not properly bitter. Plays like a mild more than an old, but excellent nonetheless.

Hmm this just isn’t my thing. And I had it warm. Aroma and taste both of licorice and star anise. Sour, bitterness not too bad. But really not great

Cask in the Prince Albert W11. Deep black in colour on first glance, ruddy highlights. Deep dark malty but not roasty, sweetish and treacly, a hint of smoke, well balanced with enough hop bitterness to keep it drinkable. Very tasty for the abv.

My favourite! Simply delicious with a fantastic aftertaste and so very drinkable. None other can compare! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours an opaque black with tiny tanned head. Interesting sour smell. Taste is like sour malt with a slight bitter finish.

Niall73 (2459) - Ontario, CANADA - DEC 19, 2013
Cask at the falcon, Clapham. Pours a very dark brown with a ruby edge and a tan head. Aroma is coffee, light leather and a little smoke. Medium body, mild carbonation. Licorice, treacle, a little coffee, medium bitterness. Yeah, it's not bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cask at Guildford Arms. Pours brown-black with a good tan head, great lacing. Aromas of milk chocolate, burnt toast, roasted malt. Taste brings toffee, and a slight sour note. Good, but more of a stout than anything.

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

prawlie (1702) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 18, 2013
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.
