Fluxing (561) - POLAND - AUG 3, 2014
Z pompy, One Eyed Rat, Ripon. Kolor ciemnobrunatny, klarowne. Piana lekko przyciemniona, bardzo gesta i kremowa, zostawia gruba warstwe i bardzo mocno oblepia szklo. W aromacie karmel, kawa, czekolada, toffi, orzechy, bardzo intensywne melanoidyny, minimalny piernik, migdaly i dym. W smaku wlasciwie to samo, jednak mniej intensywne niz w aromacie, lekko kwaskowate, minimalnie alkoholowe. W odczuciu gladkie, kremowe, ale jednak troche zbyt wytrawne. Goryczki brak. Wysycenie niskie, ledwie wyczuwalne. The_Osprey (9126) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 15, 2014
Cask at Kings Tun JDW. Dark orange / brown, big bubbly tan head. Aroma - musty malts, molasses, smoke, sugars. Body is medium, touch of carbonation. Taste is sweet caramel up front, then almond, some astringent chemically hops, finishes with a soft smokey bitterness and a bit of booze. Interesting, easy drinking.

Mild taste. Gorgeous chocolatey tasting but thin and hoppy on the tongue. Hardly any head. Deep ruby red black

Cask Pint from Robin Hood in Sheffield. Deep, dark red with a short lived frothy head. Strong smell of toffee. A little heavy on the carbonation, but good flavours of nut and toffee. Rob_D_UK (1366) - Madrid, SPAIN - APR 11, 2014

500ml bottle from Booths. Pours clear dark brown, red tinge. Little to no beige head. Aromas are metallic, chocolate and raisins. Taste is more of the same, light demerara sweetness. Palate is a bit thin. Clean finish. Ok.
