2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
DA has a nutty and mildly chocolate aroma with a see through amber to dark brown colour with a quickly dissipating cream head. There is no real life in this beer and it has a texture that resembles flat pop but there are a strong malty flavours with a hint of smoke and liquorice. A drinkable beer but not competing with some of the other dark ales that are available.
Cask. Aroma has hints of caramel amid the general maltiness. Pours dark brown with a tan top. Tastes mainly of sweet malt but something is missing and the finish is thin. downender (8882) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 7, 2016

Hand-pulled pint in The Portland Hotel, Chesterfield on 20th Nov 2014. Like it’s name suggests, this is a dark ale: dark chestnut in fact, with a creamy textured beige head on top. The head produced some impressive, heavy lacing as the beer level dropped in my straight sided Uk pint sleeve. Both the nose and taste were fruity with a roasted/toasted maltiness as a base, slight bitter and hop finish, but this is a malt driven brew with a good depth of body and flavour.
