UPDATED: SEP 27, 2010 Cask @ Geordies Byre, Ayr. Grassy malt aroma. Very dark brown colour. Roasted grassy malt flavour. Acceptable. Was not on handpump so I suspect it is probably better than this rating suggests.

Beershine (5224) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - SEP 17, 2010
Cask @ The Cumberland. Opaque black-brown with tan head. Rich dry dark malt aromas: the dust of coal, coffee, and cocoa. Soft mouthfeel. Tastes sweeter than it smells while still remaining sophisticated, with totally integrated mellow flavors. The flavors really come together. Not chocolate, not coffee , just deep mild rich solid malty goodness. Sessionable!
