On tap, George Hotel, Youlgreave. Near black with a firm cream head.  Aromas are nutty and lightly roasted with lightly liquorice and dark chocolate.  Oats with hints of cream.  Flavours are earthy with prickly carbonation and light roast malts.  Dry on the finish with some roastiness.  OK.

A nice dark beer with a pleasant taste. Nice enough for me to have two! On draft at The Crown & Cushion, Burncross. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nitro-keg at Dyers Arms, Norwich. Dark chestnut with a creamy off-white head. Weak aroma of caramel and chocolate. Dryish, light roasted malty flavour with a fruity note.

Had a few pints of this at Lakeside bar on a campsite at Sproatley. Pours dark with long lasting creamy head with nice texture & tastes quite light. One of the most moreish dark ales I’ve ever tried, really good stuff.

Keg at Highland Drove, Great Salkeld. Pours dark mud brown with tan head. Looks the part, tastes like water and chemicals. Shocker.

Keg at Tap and Spile, Birmingham. Smooth, light, dark. Pretty moreish, without being too flavoursome. OK.

Keg at the Mermaid, Porth, Cornwall. Chestnut coloured with a large creamy head. Takes a while to develop, but unusually for a keg beer it does. Chocolate and toffee up front, then a light roastiness, then a developing fruitiness. Maybe a little watery, maybe a little sweet, but overall not bad at all for a keg mild.

Keg at the Black Bull, Penwortham. Pours clear brown, thick, creamy head. Light roast aromas, little else. Taste is watery, thin, light roast again. Thin finish.

Black and creamy. Slight roasted aroma with even a bit of smoke. Plain tasting and simple but certainly a decent session beer.
