COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular. Also available bottle conditioned.
First brewed to celebrate the 500th guest beer at the Dartmouth Inn, Newton Abbot, and was named by a customer in a competition. It went down so well that it has become a regular beer. This enigmatic full bodied beer with malty hoppy fruit bitter with a sweet taste which all vie for dominance in this complex and well crafted premium chestnut coloured ale

Grzesiek79 (4134) - Radom, POLAND - JAN 9, 2017
Bottle from Beers of Europe. Piwo ma fajna kremowa na jeden palec grubosc pianki, kolor miedziano-herbaciany, zapach suszonego siana i trawy. W smaku trawiaste, goryczkowe konkretnie, nieco kremowosci brytyjskiego pudinga, gorycz wszechobecna zdominowala nawet te srednia slodowosc. Nieco oleiste i jakby tluste piwo. Bitter mocno nachmielowy. I like that.

mabuzzer (660) - Hamilton, SCOTLAND - AUG 26, 2016
Cask at the Counting House. Clear, dark copper with a thick creamy white head. Not much on the nose, a little toffee perhaps. Flavour is sweet, toffee and fruit. Reminds me of fruity toffee sweet from my childhood.

Towey1989 (2119) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 16, 2016
Cask at The Roebuck, Leek (Titanic) A clear amber colour with a medium off white head. Aroma of toffee, fruit, some red berries, slight bready malts, subtle treacle and spicy hops. Taste of toffee, fruit, some red berries, slight bready malts, a little coffee, maybe smoke and spicy hops. Medium bodied and soft carbonation. A soft, dryish, malty, spicy hop bitterness in the finish. A fruity beer with a lot of malty flavour and a spicy hop bitterness. Not to bad.

BlackHaddock (6629) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - SEP 24, 2015
Cask half-pint, hand pulled in The Bridge End Inn, Ruabon, Wales on 22nd Sep 2015. Amber pour, wispy head. Malty molasses and fruits in the nose and taste, semi-sweet in nature I quite enjoyed the brew. Can see others complaining about the unbalanced sweetness, but my sweet tooth took to it nicely.

hirigalzkar (3025) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JAN 20, 2015
Cask @ Akkurat. Feels a bit schizo (the opposite of clean) with its quaffable sweetness, heavy bready malty notes and the rather strange herbal bitterness in the end.
