Bottle, 500ml. A deep copper colour with a large off-white head. Erm, not quite what I’d call dark... A malt aroma with a hint of dark fruit. Flavour of chocolate malt with some citrus. Quite watery, metallic finish. Moderate carbonation. Pretty bland. davidtjm (1074) - Berlin, GERMANY - MAR 10, 2014
Dark pour, disappearing head, malt and chocolate aroma. Taste is roast malt, coffee and a light hops note at the end with a bitter finish. Decent Quack-Duck (9487) - Down South, GERMANY - DEC 28, 2013

Bottle from Tesco, Durham. This is a very dark brown beer with sweet malty and red fruity flavours with a slight roasted and sweet note on the finish. BlackHaddock (7583) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - OCT 14, 2013
50cl Bottle: BBD 31 Jul 2014, poured into an Abbot Ale glass tankard on 14 Oct 2013.
Over chilled it.
Good deep beige head on top of a lovely clear, mahogany body: looked good.
The nose began to give off some malty notes as it warmed and they were also prominent in the taste, not as sweet as I half expected, this had a more semi-sour fruitiness feel to the flavour than malty molasses: traces of bitter, dark chocolate also appeared later in the aroma and taste
Medium bodied with a little too much carbonation for my palate, the hops giving a fine bitter finish to a beer that got better each degree it warmed. harrisoni (19165) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 7, 2013
Bottle from Tesco. Decent dark ale the kind that isn’t made much anymore. What with all these golden ale. Some milk chocolate. Yeah ok. mR_fr0g (13158) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 29, 2013
