Bottle. Very dark brown with a dense cream head. Aromas are roast malts with chocolate and lots of berry fruit. Flavours are sweet coffee malts followed by strong alcohol notes. Also has winter fruit with mollases. Smooth on the palate with a dry, warming alcohol finish.

Cask conditioned - no sparkler Malt Shovel Northampton BF. Malty nutty aroma. The beer is almost black but has russet tints to it. Chewy malty flavour typical of the style. A well balnced tasty beer.

SilkTork (5663) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - FEB 7, 2004
White Cliffs Winter Ales Fest. Gravity. Dark tangy old ale. Scarlet hued. Leads with the dark malt and finishes even darker. A splendid balance of sweet and bitter, both hovering like shimmering dragonflies, but never settling on either scale. Increasingly pleasant at the end of the festival with the band playing good stuff and chatting with good company.

BeerCast_Rich (1906) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 19, 2011
[500ml bottle, The Bottle, York] Dirty brown pour with a bubbly white head that reduces pretty quickly to almost nothing. Bitter malt aromas, almost cheesy nose. Rich deep flavours of stone fruit backed up by a tobacco bitterness. Alcohol in evidence on the finish, which is quite harsh and bitter. Not great balance to this one maybe a bad bottle looking at the other ratings [17062008]
