thirstyrabbit (1784) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 8, 2013
Bottle. Dark brown, minimal head. Aroma has sweet roast and light cocoa. Mild but full malty and roasty taste. When I glanced at the ABV numbers I was thinking it might turn out to be too watery but its really not.

BlackHaddock (6629) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - SEP 6, 2013
500ml Bottle: BB 23 Jan 2014. Poured into two old Home Ales badged Countryman glass tankards on 6 Sep 2013 (the wife wanted half). Looked fine: dark mahogany body with a full head of off-white foam. The aroma is all malts, slightly burnt and full on dark chocolate. Taste wise it is also a chocolate malt lead, but it isnt that simple, there is a lot more going on. Nutty and woody, some hidden spiciness and always a semi-sweetness being suppressed by the hop content. Very drinkable and a pleasant change from all the golden brews I seem to be having at the moment.

Dommod2011 (705) - Birmingham, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 10, 2013
Bit of chocolate somewhere in the mix. Some sips are a bit rank and others are reasonably reasonable. Fizzy and thin. Is it rare if you can get it in many supermarkets? I dont want to know the answer.

The_Osprey (7140) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 19, 2013
UPDATED: OCT 31, 2014

Feb 2012 - Bottle. Inoffensive, drinkable. Not worth having again really. (3.0)

Oct 2014 - Gravity cask at the Jerusalem Tavern, Farringdon. Dark ruby or black, still, small scummy off-white head, full lacing. Aroma is light treacle. Body is light, slightly foamy, low carbonation. Taste is rounded biscuity malt, semisweet, some red grape, light bitterness. Better than the bottled version. (3.3)

Kikuzzo (143) - Bologna, ITALY - MAR 11, 2013
Non trovo un momento per non berla, sempre appagante e non invasiva urla alla rivoluzione proletaria dei malti contro limpero capitalista dei luppoli!
