Arek (1166) - Zielona Góra & Wrocław, POLAND - DEC 22, 2015
Cask 1 Pint, The Porterhouse, Bournemouth, England, UK.
Ciemnorubinowe piwo z puszystą i trwałą pianą. W smaku kremowe, przyjemnie palone i lekko kawowe z łagodnie wytrawnym finiszem.

DIBBLE (103) - Worthing, West Sussex, ENGLAND - MAY 2, 2015
Clear yet deep dark red beer. Brief off white head. Light roast malt aroma. Thick smooth slightly powdery mouthfeel. Light toffee, roast malt. Lightly sweet. Lightly bitter.

SlackerMads (3406) - DENMARK - JAN 13, 2015
Cask. Dark chestnut brown with a medium sized beige head. Roasted malt, brown sugar, earthy, nuts, cocoa. Light flowery hops. Soft and filling. Medium body with some sweetness and bitterness to balance it. Dark malts in the finish. As it warms up it gets a bit more syrupy and some sulphor notes start to show without getting too offensive.

This has really changed and not for the better. Fairly light in body now. Gone is most of the toast but red fruit still there, closer to a best bitter now really

Mr_Pink_152 (5107) - Lincoln, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - JAN 1, 2015
Part of my 2013 backlog. Deep brown colour with a tan head. The aroma has chocolate caramel. The taste has more of this with licorice.

Niall73 (2434) - Ontario, CANADA - DEC 31, 2014
Cask at JDW Streatham. Pours dark reddy brown with an off white head. Woody, ashy, dark fruit aroma. Dark fruit, lemon, coca cola, botanical stuff... A little acidic. Not great. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
