danlo (3238) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - DEC 16, 2012
500ml bottle from Richmond Brewing Co., The Station, Richmond. Dark amber brown colour, thin tan head and a sour roast chocolate caramel aroma. The taste is roasted malty chocolate with sourish notes, slight bitterness and some residual sweetness, through to a dry roast malt caramel finish. OK.

ralphdot (1102) - Billingham, Durham, ENGLAND - NOV 3, 2011
3.7% vinegar, I can only assume it was off, although I did buy it from the brewery. If it was meant t taste like it did then it should be called Swill not Swale, in fact the river Swale probably tastes better.
