On cask at The Bow Bar. Pours a dark brown colour with red tinge and a thin, light tan head. Aroma of caramel, coffee, dark malt and yeast. Similar flavours. A little thin with lingering yeast and caramel flavours. OK but not really my thing. imdownthepub (14440) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 16, 2011
Cask conditioned at The Dagda Bar, Edinburgh. Chestnut with cream head. This is a dark, malty bitter, perhaps a touch thin, but fruity and creamy enough to keep it in good shape. Quite reasonable. dantheman278 (1361) - SCOTLAND - FEB 17, 2011
Cask at the Bow Bar. Pours a deep amber with a well-formed but short-lived head. Aroma is light coffee, malt and berries. Taste is sweet and smooth, with very little bitterness. Resiny and sweet, with a reasonable aftertaste. Not bad, very drinkable. KnutAlbert (6754) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 23, 2010
CAsk in Edinburgh. Very deep copper. Malty beer, a bit spicy. Gingerbread, caramel, vanilla. Some roasted grain, too. The bitterness is well hidden here. Oakes (17274) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 1, 2010
Dark reddish-brown. The aroma has rich fruits and dark sugars. Sweetish, slightly fruity with caramel accents. Decent complexity. Soft body. Sweetish finish. A good one, their best beer.

Cask @ Guildford Arms. Garnet with a great head. Great bready aroma with currants. Flavors are similar with lots of sweet dried fruits, currants and sultanas. Good bread crust malt flavors. Very nice! oh6gdx (26482) - Vasa, FINLAND - SEP 5, 2010

Deep brown colour, small head. Aroma is bready and caramel malty, some mild dark dry fruits, mild leathery notes as well as some nuttyness. Flavour is mildly ashy, leathery, caramel malty and dark fruity. Quite pleasant.
UPDATED: JUL 19, 2010 Cask @ The State Bar. Mild fruitcake aroma. Dark brown colour with reddish tinge. Fruitcake, biscuit and cereal flavour. Quite smooth. hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 10, 2010
Cask at 5th English Rose Beer Festival, Luton, Bedfordshire. Very dark brown. Sweet, musty aroma of ripening silage. Leathery taste with a hint of aniseed. Slight bitterness. Rough and rather pleasing. mr_h (5434) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - MAY 22, 2010
